    BeanBay Green Bean Release Feb / March 2018

    BeanBay Green Bean Release Feb / March 2018

    Available in BeanBay now:



    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB

    Guatemala Jacaltenango SHB (strictly hard bean).
    Jacaltenango is in the northern end of Guatemala, near the Mexican border and even as a green bean this is full of fruit and sweet aromas. The same ripe coffee fruit sweetness appears in the espresso shot along with some green apple acidity that lifts the aromas. Stunning as a long black but also works well in all espresso based drinks.


    Hawaii Kona Waiono Fancy

    This coffee hails from the most famous of the Hawaiian coffee growing islands, Kona.
    It was grown and processed in Waiono Meadows and arrived with official government certification that this meets the fancy grading and is not a forgery (which is a real thing with Kona coffees). Itís a fully washed coffee, very clean almost polished appearance and is easy to roast even with the added pressure of the expense. I took it to a careful CS8 and found very smooth, clean and balanced and quite similar to a Jamaican coffee in style.
    Crazy expensive but is one of the very best coffees produced on the Kona Island.
    Packed in 1kg lots so you don't need a 2nd mortgage.


    Honduras La Central SHG

    Honduras La Central SHG. Strictly High Grown this Honduran comes from the La Central coffee coop and is the first Honduran coffee we have seen for a while. At a roast depth of CS8-9 it is bright and lively with a light body and provides a great contrast to the dry process Ethiopian beans that I love so much. Washed, well graded and dense makes this an easy one to roast.
    Bargain price for a great coffee.








    ...the required fine print...
    (with the exception of the more expensive 1kg lots and the bulky 2kg Monsoons) All BeanBay green beans are packed in 2.5kg zippered cotton bags, perfect for storage for up to 3 years when kept in a cool, dark and dry position. We ship paid orders out from the Snobbery Monday to Thursday and BeanBay will show the available shipping options and actual freight costs to your area. Larger orders are typically cheaper to freight per kilogram so we suggest ordering all your requirements at once. We also strongly recommend that you ship to an attended address (eg: work or grandma's house) to avoid delivery delays. Monday to Thursday we will ship everything same day that we receive payment for but please remember bank lag means it will take at least a day for your payment to get to us even though your bank took it from you instantly. If you want it faster, don't procrastinate and please order earlier for less stress.






    Enjoy!




    Andy.

    You release a Kona the month after I leave?

    Are you likely to be out of this by next April/May? I'd quite like to try it but won't be back in Australia until then. I'm guessing this is the kind of bean that will be sold out next week.

    I agree with the above reply, send to a friend would work.
    The other option is to order and pay for some with (Morgan St - Free) as the shipping option and we will put it aside and charge you freight when you come back.

    As for how long it will last? We never know. We have had things disappear in 10 minutes or 10 weeks, the only sure thing is to grab it when it's there.

    Thanks for your generous offer Andy, much appreciate it. Only issue is I don't know if I'll be back in April or September yet and I wouldn't want to trouble you (or a friend) to hold something this long. When the flights are locked in I'll check the stock.

    How are you roasting it?

    Auspost just let me know my order is scheduled for delivery today of the Kona and some more Ethiopian Gesha (love this bean!). Only ordered about 2pm Wednesday arvo and they are already here in Adelaide.

    Thanks Andy for the great service and the great selection - Was my Birthday last week and the family gave me some extra cash to splurge on some fancy beans, so the timing of the Kona couldn't be better!

    Would this be the most expensive one you have done? If not what prices do they get up to?

    Nah, we had a pile (small pile) of Panama for $280/kg and it was cheap at that price (and insanely amazing).

    Decided to wait another day and wow it's good. Unbelievably smooth.

    Not fruity (which I normally love) but tastes like a fine Swiss chocolate. Love it.

    And for those like me who don't know...

    Strictly Hard Bean Synonymous with "strictly high grown (SHG)", "strictly hard bean (SHB)" usually refers to coffee grown at altitudes higher than about 4,500 feet above sea level. Beans grown at high altitudes mature more slowly and grow to be harder and denser than beans grown at lower elevations. The inherent consistency and taste attributes of high grown beans makes them more desirable, and generally more expensive, than coffees grown at lower elevations.
