Customer Reviews

No. Terrible.This coffee had so many defects that I had to hand-sort it and pulled at least an eighth of a pound out. There were also quite a few broken beans, many of which lodged into the mesh on my Behmor drum. Also pulled several almost white beans which makes me wonder how old the lot was that these beans were drawn from.Bean size was not uniform at all which really makes me wonder what the providence of this lot actually is. It's almost like a collection of rejected beans that were sold off. Awful, will never buy again.Update: the defects were present in the cup. A bit of sourness and a musty rather than earthy taste.1Great Quality So I Learned More About Lavanta and Was Really Happy to Find Out Some Amazing Stuff ...Because I like the quality of their coffee so much, I did a little research into the company and was pleasantly surprised by what I learned: Lavanta cares earnestly about how their business is run as well as and about the health, education and prosperity of coffee farmers and the environment. Lavanta takes initiative and gets involved to make a positive difference; for example: Bringing teachers/schools to a village so family can stay together and get a good education; Setting up business cooperatives in villages which fully benefits the community; Planting 1,000 trees (for every container of coffee sold) on government preserves which had been clear-cut by industry; Funding environmentally responsible infrastructure projects such as bringing water into villages so the women in the villages don't have to walk 4-5 miles every day with heavy jugs of water on their heads. It's obvious that Lavanta cares about bringing a high quality product to market in a way that is not only a win for their customers and a win for their business, but also a win for their suppliers and the environment! I was so happy learn about this that I wanted to share.Roasts up to be very tasty coffee. Fast delivery. Some of the beans were on the smaller size and more round-shaped than usual, almost like peaberry. I'll buy again5great coffee!Papua New Guinea Sigri Estate: Very good quality coffee with very few defects. Roasts nice and uniform yielding excellent cup of coffee.Update as of October 12, 2016: I have roasted several batches of this coffee and have cupped it with several other coffees from Brazil, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Columbia, Costa Rica, India Africa and Jamaica. For my preference, this coffee ties for 2nd with the Columbian coffee with the Jamaican Blue Mountain as tops. On any given day, the PNG ranks higher. It could be the variability in preparation, my daily preference, a variability of the beans, or a combination of any or all of the variables. By the way, i roast to just at 2nd crack using my makeshift hot air roaster taking the bean to 420 to 440 at about 13 minutes.5Great Lavanta Value ContinuesOur favorite Lavanta green bean offering to date! The Tanzanian peaberry was our second and the Ethiopian Yirgge was the third (though usually it's one of my favorites).The Toraja Sulawesi has a great earthy flavor. We typically only roast 1:20 - 1:40 after first crack depending on where the "sweet spot" is for each varietal for us. We loath darker roasts (like burning a good steak) so we tend to roast as lightly as possible while still waking up all the beans' flavors.The Yirgge never seemed to fully "wake up" short of roasting it beyond anything we'd want to drink. The Tanzanian needed to be on the longer end of our roast time. The Toraja is fantastic at 1:20 (for us).There are a few quakers in it, but fewer than we found in the Tanzanian (fewer shells, too). There are still a number of other defects, usually smaller, discolored beans. The only other defects I've noticed are broken pieces. I've never seen insect damage or stones. I don't think any Lavanta coffee we've had would qualify for Grade II, Probably more like Grade III.But the bad beans can be picked out, and, for the price, this is still the best deal I've found on mail-order green coffee!4The Process is EasyThe process is easy.:Non-stick pan, no oil. Medium heat.Add a fair amount of beans.Stir until it gets as dark as you want it.Immediately put in a metal bowl and stir until cool.Put it in a strainer and stir to get rid of the chaff.Let sit for two days.Grind, brew, and enjoy.Takes a max of 20 minutes to make.Save around $0.78/ounce vs. coffee shop.We re loving this coffee. It s a nice treat from the weekday generic pre-ground acceptable stuff we drink.5Sumatra Peaberry: tastes great!UPDATE: after allowing some of the coffee roasted with the Nesco roaster to sit for a few weeks in an airtight container (while I enjoyed some different coffee), a funny thing happened that I wasn't expecting and have never experienced before: the coffee got better. Dramatically so. So much so that I really enjoyed it. Maybe this "aging" process is something that frequently occurs but that I've just never read about, but whatever occurred, it ended up taking fantastic.That earns a swift and well deserved upgrade from 2 stars to 5!ORIGINAL REVIEW: I've been slowly getting into home coffee roasting after a friend with a Nesco home roaster let me sample several of the coffee's he's done, which he's purchased on Amazon from Lavanta. A Kenya blend he had was simply outstanding and sold me that home roasting was something I had to try.Traditionally, I've always liked Sumatra medium/dark roasts. I purchased Sumatra Peaberry as a way to roast something I was already familiar with from many other coffee companies, hopefully to give me a baseline of how Lavanta's coffee measured up.I started with an air popper (ghetto garage style) after reading many online reviews, tutorials, and opinions on this process. The roasting process was simple and the beans roasted beautifully. I turned off the popper right as 2C started, and immediately cooled them down to stop the roasting process. Waited 24 hours for them to off-gas and then got ready to try it. The beans smelled great. I used my hand-crank burr grinder to grind them for my AeroPress and the grounds smelled great. I made it in the usual manner and they bloomed right up - or even more so than I expected. First sips were decent, but really didn't blow me away. I finished my cup with mixed feelings, but just figured I could adjust the roast for the next batch.The next day I went to make another cup of coffee with the same fresh roasted Sumatra Peaberry, and I don't know what happened in the beans, but I literally couldn't finish the cup. It tasted very ashy, and almost...sour?I tried a couple of other batches of roasts and never had the same experience with it tasting "sour", but never achieved anything other than average-at-best 7-Eleven mini mart style coffee. I had about 1/2 pound left and asked my friend with the Nesco roaster to roast up the last of it so that I could at least compare THAT roast against my air popper roast(s). It was marginally better, but not dramatically at all.What I thought might have been the result of the ghetto air popper roasting process, I think actually was the batch of beans I had. I don't know if it was the Peaberry beans, or if it's their Sumatra blends in general. I'm not going to give up and want to try at least two other roasts before I give up on Lavanta, but for what it's worth, their Sumatra Peaberry isn't ever worth purchasing again if it continues to taste like that.5Nice robust flavor2nd batch...stoped just short of 2nd crack...jeeminy christmas...they made a DELICIOUS cup of coffee. Probably a City roast?I think if you roast to or past the 2nd crack...yer over doing it.************Good strong coffee. Makes a SUPER creamy & dark crema on a double shot.Roasted to 2nd crack; Full City Loudest cracking beans yet; like tiny fire-crackers.Beans didn t roast evenly (yes, they were well rotated & evenly heated).Going to roast a little short of second crack next time.5very good light thru medium+I always have on hand a Kenyan or Tanzania bean. If you like beans from Mt Kilimanjaro these peaberry won t disappoint you; it has a bright clean smooth favor void of bitterness or grassy hints. I ve placed 2 orders and been happy with both shipments. My 4 photos show 5 roastings between light (ending of 1st crack) and dark (30+ seconds into 2nd crack with some oily sheen).My only note of many marked as excellent was pulled at 10 minutes at 435 laser probe and 20 seconds into 2nd crack (this reading of a pair of red laser beams at the bottom of a smokey Whirley popcorn popper are an approximate reference point). This temperature and duration in 2nd crack has been repeated several times. However, on one occasion that I can t explain I couldn t get the beans after a reasonable time to enter 2nd crack and pulled them before my impatience grew; this has only happened once before and that bean was a peaberry too.My 4 pics of different roastings all use a Stainless Whirley Pop on a Bayou Classic cooker.1.) light roast, my note indicates a single first crack at 6:10, regular random 1st cracks 6:30 at 380 (laser probe, calibrated?); dumped at 7:30 & 415 2.) Med+ roast, pulled at 410 +, these are darker than a batch pulled at 415 (laser probe was more or less accurate one of the two times)3.) Dark w/med roast, pulled at 430 and 30+ seconds into 2nd crack4.) light to medium roast, pulled at 415 and medium to dark roast, pulled at 435 and 20 seconds into 2nd crack. I often blend a mixture of two roasting unless one cups really well.5A solid crowd pleaser but watch the priceAfter a previous positive experience with another Lavanta green coffee, I went ahead and ordered this Guatemalan. I again was a bit hesitant since Lavanta provides so little information about their beans. In this case, all that is advertised is that it is strictly hard bean (SHB) and Fair Trade. Other vendors of green coffee beans are known to provide a lot more information, such as the date they received the beans, the coffee growing region of the beans, cupping notes and the elevation the beans were grown at, and even more. But not Lavanta, and it makes you wonder why.Nonetheless, the beans appear to be in good order, with an acceptable defect rate. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and I roasted my first batch to a Full City Plus. The result is a crowd pleaser -- which pleases me. It's a solid Guatemalan, though not an exceptional Guatemalan. Guatemalans are some of the best beans going and at prices only slightly higher than these you can buy cleaner and juicier beans; but I am doing some hair-splitting. Chances are quite good that you'll enjoy roasting and cupping and sharing these beans. I'm going to try roasting a wee bit lighter for my next batch of Lavanta Guatemala.4Extremely disappointed by the miserably poor quality of these beansExtremely disappointed by the miserably poor quality of these beans. This is not a batch of Kenya AA+ beans. The bean size was highly variable and about 10% of the "beans" were merely thin, empty shells. Only about half of the beans would qualify as Kenya AA (not Kenya AA+). Many of the beans were small and shriveled and there was an excessive amount of non-coffee debris mixed in. Unfortunately, they're not returnable and can only serve as 4 pounds of expensive compost material. I've received some great quality beans from Lavanta in the past, but after this experience, I've lost confidence in the company's green coffee beans.1
