Carolen Commodities & B*E*A*N*S Custom Coffee is happy to provide you with an opportunity that we believe is available from very few coffee roasters/purveyors for single bags of coffee: Your own custom 12 ounce blend of coffee, roasted and ground to your taste, and usually shipped with 24 hours of your order!
You choose 10% multiples from our premium grade Brazilian, Colombian DECAF, Costa Rican Tarrazu, Laos or Tanzanian varieties (up to 4 choices); choose the roast you prefer; and the grind your coffee-maker requires (or select whole roasted beans), and we create the magic for you, on demand. The only limitations are your imagination, and the blend must be of one single roast & grind for the entire blend. It's an easy and great way to create a unique premium blend that is exactly what you want for your coffee, such as your preferred flavor, but with less caffeine, etc. As always...B*E*A*N*S Custom Coffee helps you to: BE EXTRAORDINARY AND NEVER SETTLE!
Important Instructions for Creating your Personal Blend:
First: Select your desired bag size and then you blend COFFEE CHOICES, up to 4. If you only want 2 or 3 varieties in your blend, select SKIP THIS SELECTION for the choices (3 &/or 4) you are ignoring.
Second: For each of your blend choices, type in the % you want for each of your blend choices. PLEASE...make sure that each of your %'s is a multiple of 10% (ie: 10%, 20%, 30%. etc). For example, if you want half & half of two varieties in your blend, you would enter "50%" for those varieties. Just remember, please, that all of your percentages must add up to 100%. You can ignore, or enter "0", as the % for any "ignored selection".
Third: Select the ROAST that you prefer. Note, please, that all of your blend choices will be roasted to the same degree.
Last: Select the GRIND that you want. Again, all of your coffee choices will be ground the same way. If you prefer whole roasted beans, make that choice from the grind drop-down list.
That's all there is to creating your own unique blend.
HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTED BLENDS TO TRY:
S. American Lite: The intent of this blend is strictly to reduce caffeine, while still retaining great S. American coffee flavors: Choose 50/50 Brazilian & Colombian Decaf. With their intoxicating flavor & aroma, our Premium Brazilian & Colombian 100% Arabica Coffees have no problem standing alone. But with half of the caffeine...& approximately 1/4 the caffeine of cheap supermarket Robusto (or instant) coffee, this blend is mildly invigorating, but not so much that you would need to avoid drinking a cup after dinner (unless you are very sensitive to caffeine in any %). Medium Roast is suggested but, if you prefer a darker roast, you should know that this blend will not suffer with added bitterness with a Medium-Dark Roast.
Moka Jave Revisited: Moka Java is an ancient coffee blend, originally consisting of coffee from Yemen blended with coffee from Java. The name "Mocha", "Moka" or Mokkha" refers toan old port in Yemen...having nothing to do with today's "mocha" which is a mix of coffee & chocolate/cocoa. Our updated blend suggestion is a 40/60 mix of Laos (Sumatra twin) and Tanzanian coffees roasted to medium-dark. These varieties are subject to availability but, while our supplies last, we will be happy to create this blend for your at no extra cost.
"Southern Prime, Lite": A blend of South American coffees with classic coffee taste, low acidity & great aroma...as well a reduced caffeine: 40% Colombian DECAF, 30% Bolivian, 40% Brazilian; Medium Roast is suggested. (Note: We are referring to this as a blend of 3 coffees, because that is what you would mix. However, as the Brazilian is already a blend of 2 coffees, the final result of this blend is a mix of 4 varieties.)
"World Traveler, Premium": A blend of 30% Brazilian (S. American) with coffee from 3 other continents/regions (Central America, Africa, Asia). Choices 2 thru 4:, Costa Rica Tarrazu, 20%; Tanzania, 30%; Laos, 20%. With this blend, you will enjoy our Brazilian, with its good body and neutral acidity, enhanced by the fruity flavors of Costa Rican & Tanzanian, and the earthy flavor of Laotian. What we would call a sophisticated "adult" blend, which is suggested to be roasted to Medium-Dark.
purchasing 8, or more, custom blend bags, we can roast individual
components to different degrees. These are bulk purchases, and we have a page specifically for them. Please check out that page, and ask in advance if you want multiple roasts in one blend. We don't charge extra for this, but it does take special care, on our part, to make sure your blend is correctly prepared!
2. We do not offer a green bean option for these
custom blends. We want you to be satisfied, and we cannot guarantee that
different bean varieties will roast uniformly in a home roaster.
(Buyers of bulk-buckets of a custom blend can request whole green beans
to be finished in their commercial roaster.)
3. Upon special request, we can create your blend that includes one or more seasonal varieties that are not listed among the standard choices. We don't include these in the normal blend choices only because we can't predict when individual seasonal varieties will be gone until next year's crop comes in. But, depending upon availability, and upon request, we can create special blends for you, such as 50/50 Ugandan & Tanzanian...a delicious All-African blend. Prices vary, depending upon specific varieties and proportions chosen, but in many cases the per pound cost will not increase. Please do feel free to inquire, if you are interested in such as really special blend, by email, phone or in the notes section of the order form.
