BeanBay Green Bean Release Oct/Nov 2018
BeanBay Green Bean Release October / November 2018
Available in BeanBay now:
Costa Rica Miel SHB
Costa Rica Miel SHB is another coffee from the premium region in Costa Rica, Tarrazu and Honey processed by the good folks at Coop Dota.
This high grown, hard bean Costa Rican was honey processed leaving the fruit in contact with the seed much longer. During processing this looks like a sticky, gooey mess hence the term miel. The result in the cup is typically sweeter and fruitier and that's certainly the case here. You can smell the sweetness even before roasting and the body in the cup is greatly improved over the traditional processing. Stunning coffee and great value, a must try.
India Elephant Hills Peaberry
Indian Elephant Hills Peaberry. This coffee hails from the same Thalanar estate as the Elephant Hills AA comes from.
Peaberry coffees are unique in that all the beans are rounded, not the traditional "flat" bean you associate as a coffee bean shape. As a rule, peaberry coffees always taste sweeter than their flat bean cousins, I don't understand why and it might be due to the development time on the tree or the different way they roast.
This is really well processed and sorted and produced a good bodied, sweet coffee that works well in all coffee drinks. Enjoy!
PNG Wahgi AA
PNG Wahgi AA. Well washed, sorted and sized this is a really easy bean to roast and the results work well through a number of roast depths and brewing styles. Bright and acidic at CS8, Sweet at CS9, full of cocoa at CS10. I like it as an doppio espresso at CS9 where it's still has some lingering brightness but this coffee really shines best in milk based drinks.
Stunning PNG coffee with a big CoffeeSnobs fan club.
Tanzania Kilimanjaro A
Tanzania Kilimanjaro A. As the name suggests, this beautiful coffee was grown at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro towards the Kenyan border.
Washed but not polished even as a green bean you can smell the fruit in this bean. Off the roaster, this bean produces a bright mid bodied espresso suitable for milk as well as black coffees and through a wide range of roast depths for other brewing methods. Lovely coffee.
Uganda Rwenzori Organic
Uganda Rwenzori is one in a series of special Ugandan coffees we have just landed.
This is Organic and Fairtrade certified at origin and well processed. Beans are not size graded but have been hand sorted at the United Friends washing station to remove the stuff we don't want to find.
These work through a wide range of roast depths, in the lighter roasts it's bright and zingy and with a longer profile it will turn into a cocoa bomb that's bold enough to pull through the milk based drinks. Enjoy!
...the required fine print...
With the exception of the more expensive 1kg lots and the bulky 2kg Monsoon coffees, 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 all 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 and 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, please just order earlier, less stress and never have a reason to ask us "are we there yet?".
I see the PNG Wahgi AA is available as green beans but not as roasted. Are there any plans for more roasted PNG Wahgi AA?
PNG Wahgi AA
That was a (stupid busy, arm flapping) oversight.
Slow customs clearance but the Ugandan Rwenzori Organic has just been added into BeanBay (and the first post above).
