    BeanBay Green Bean Release August/Sept 2019

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    BeanBay Green Bean Release August/Sept 2019

    Available in BeanBay now:



    Ethiopia Bensa Sagara



    Ethiopia Bensa Sagara was hand sorted and packed in grain-pro for the long haul to Australia, it's arrived in excellent condition.
    You can smell the coffee fruit on the green bean, sweetness is the dominant reaction and similar flavours carry through to the roasted bean. Thoughts of nectarine, peach and other sweet stone fruits flavours came through strongest in the lighter roasts but it works well through a wide range of roast depths and brew methods. An exciting and versatile bean.


    India Elephant Hills AA Grade



    Yes, it's back!
    Indian Elephant Hills AA. This coffee hails from the Thalanar region well known for growing coffee, citrus and cardamom. Well processed and screened to A grade this is an easy coffee to roast and works well as a single origin or as a base for a traditional Italian style blend. Super sweet yet quite bold in milk based drinks. Wonderful all rounder coffee.


    Kenya A



    Kenya A is one of the worlds great coffees. Bold and bright, it's often thought of as the perfect black coffee but in darker roasts it will really pull through even the tallest milk based drinks too. This one is clean, crisp, easy to roast and great value at $11/kg.






    ...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?"




    Enjoy!




    Andy.

    Yeah, I've heard from a few people (including my wife) that it's very phone friendly now with way less pinching and pulling to get to what you want.

    The Ethiopia Bensa Sagara sounds a very interesting bean Andy.
    Where in Ethiopia does the origin hail from mate?

    South, South West, not far from the Kenyan border but don't get it confused with a Kenyan as these are a totally different varietal and very much like the Ardi. If you enjoyed the Ardi you'll love this, it's a cracker!

    Yeah, I've heard that rejected names for the region were the local dialect translations for 'Love Symbol' and 'Raspberry Beret'. They eventually settled on "Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region". Really rolls off the tongue, doesn't it.

    I roasted some of the new Bensara Sagara natural. It's crazy crazy fruity and sweet. Very ripe indeed. Roasted on light side of medium with 20% development time, it's like a strawberry and chocolate milkshake as a flat white. Dare I say it, almost too much of a good thing.🤯

    Next time I will try it with more heat and take it to start of second crack to see if I can tame it a bit!

    For now I'm loving it in a blend with the Sulawesi blue triple sort I also picked up, with 67% Indo, 33% Ethiopia

    ...11/10 on the mocha java scale 😉

    @Andy , I was looking to pick up some Sulawesi Blue beans but they don't appear on the list now. Is the Sumatran triple sort similar to it ?

    Currently tossing between new Ethiopia Bensa above and the Sumatran Looking for something good to blend with the Indian Elephant Hills.

    The Sulawesi blue and the Sumatran triple are nearly the same in the cup, they look different and we landed it as a substitute for our commercial roasts too. We are hoping to land more of the blue but it might not be till close to Christmas and that's a terrible time for international freight!

    Oh, and you want both the Bensa and the Sumatran in your toolbox, they are vastly different but both excellent.

    Andy - Sorry to be a pain but i am trying to order some green beans and the beanbay is coming up with error page when loading. Is there a process you use to get around this or an updated link discussion on this? Just after 4-5 different green beans for milk based coffee. I have been enjoying the colombian volcan especial but wanting to try some others. Thanks

    I had no troubles loading Bean bay. You might want to contact Andy directly via the Contact Us link and give him more details such as the error message, where it appears, what browser and operating system you are using.
    Given that the site has been undergoing some changes yesterday , I recommend first clearing/resetting your browser and if that doesn't help, contact Andy.
