100% Arabica Coffee: You have probably noticed that many cheap, supermarket coffee bags list the ingredients as "100% Coffee". That's not a lie...but it also somewhat of a marketing ploy: It usually means that the coffee is all, or mostly. robusto...the type of bean that is also the source of most instant coffee. It is cheaper to grow than ours, but coffee connoisseurs find it to be unpalatable.
By contrast, B*E*A*N*S Coffee, whether single-source or a blend, is 100% Arabica Coffee.
Arabica coffee is more expensive to grow, because it requires shade
high mountain slopes...and the yield is less. Because of the high,
isolated growing locations, it is also expensive to ship from farm to
market. But, when compared side by side with robusto, no-one who loves
coffee does not fail to appreciate the supreme taste, fail to agree that
it is worth the
somewhat higher price. B*E*A*N*S Custom Coffee is never adulterated with cheap Robusto beans.
Truly Custom: Again, please remember...The word "Custom" in our name is significant: Not only is your order roasted shortly before it is shipped to you, it is also ground to your preferences, at the very time of your order...we provide many more grind choices than almost anyone else!
More Affordable than the huge purveyors:
Everywhere in the world, coffee prices are increasing, because of the
effects of global warming. But, we still strive to be competitive with
the big purveyors, without degrading the quality of our products. We
invite you to comparison shop. We are confident that you will find B*E*A*N*S Custom Coffee
to be more competitively priced than other premium coffees...even those
that are bulk roasted and then set on a shelf where they age, and lose
they are sold. By contrast, your affordable B*E*A*N*S
purchase is roasted within days of it being shipped to you. Because
coffee actually improves in flavor over the first few days after it is
roasted, that ensures that It will arrive at your door at the very of
its peak of flavor!
We know dark roasts & more: If you like dark-roast coffee, you'll find that take care to ensure that our dark-roast is "blackened, not burnt". Some of the most famous brands have a reputation for tasting burnt...NOT B*E*A*N*S!
Full-bodied decaf or "Half-Caff": Because our decaffeinated &/or flavored coffees are derived from our premium Colombian coffee, and are decaffeinated using a registered Swiss Water® process, you won't be disappointed by a weak brew if you choose one of these varieties, nor will there be any chemical or solvent residue in your decaf. Plus, we are pleased to introduce of new "Half-Caff" blend, which as some caffeine, without the "full kick" that you might appreciate in the first coffee of your day. A blend of half-decaf, and half premium, full-body coffee, you can now enjoy great coffee even late in the day or in the evening.
Flavored Coffee: We do not offer many flavored coffees, because we want to avoid the common practice of preparing flavored coffee with cheap bean & artificial flavors that are load with chemicals. Hence, we currently limit flavors to seasonal varieties, such as our Pumpken Spice, which is flavored with natural spices. However, we recently discovered a rare source of completely natural flavorings for coffee, and hope to add more great flavors to our offerings. Keep a lookout for news in that regard!
Serve it Hot or Cold: We're sure you'll find that the complex aroma and flavor of our varieties is suburb, and we think that you will especially appreciate that some of our varieties, such as our premium Colombian, and our new Cold Brew Blend, retain their flavor in all forms...that is, whether you serve it as hot coffee, espresso or cappuccino...or as iced coffee.
B*E*A*N*S gives you more
than most gourmet coffee purveyors: While we do offer 10 & 12 ounce bags, we consider that our standard roasted coffee bag
size is the 12 ounce size. We do not claim, as some purveyors do, that we have somehow packed the flavor of a 12 ounce bag into a 10 ounce bag (or even an 8 oz bag, as some claim!) The large the bag you buy from us, the lower is the unit pricing. Available are 1, 2 or 5 pound bags. All are premium, multi-layer bags, and resealable, to preserve the peak flavor.
Our whole green coffee beans come in a 40 oz pkg (heavy Kraft paper to allow some air flow that green beans require); and comes with a nice discount off the usual 5 pound pricing.
Your Own Custom Blend: At no extra cost, and without being required to make a huge minimum purchase...B*E*A*N*S Custom Coffee even offers you the rare opportunity to create individual bags of your very own personal blend of up to 4 different varieties of our featured varieties...and you will select your preferred roast & grind. Even more extraordinary is that, when you create your own custom blend, there is no extra cost for this option!
Premium Packaging: Because freshly roasted coffee gives off CO2 gas for some time, you coffee will be shipped to you in a high tech plastic & foil bag with a special one-way valve, which retains flavor & aroma while allowing this out-gassing to occur without the bag rupturing. Green beans, on the other hand, must be able to "breathe" continuously, so they are shipped in a heavy Kraft paper bag. Stored in a cool dry place, green beans will retain their flavor potential, when finally roasted, for 10-12 months or more.
