Welcome to the BioBean Coffee website.

 

 

            

 



 

It is with great excitement that I monitor the solar app on my phone and see the power generating before my eyes.  With our new solar system we are generating more than enough electricity (so far even on an overcast day) to power our daily coffee roasting and packing needs.

See our Facebook Page for photos.  https://www.facebook.com/BioBeanCoffee


We do still use bottled gas to fire up the roaster but we are situated in the foot hills on a 3 hectare rural property with thousands of trees to compensate.


For our deliveries we use Australia Post.  They collect from our premises 3 days a week and usually deliver the coffee the next day.   We feel this is far more environmentally responsible than keeping one or more delivery vehicles and drivers.  The Australia Post van is going past your door every day pretty much so why not take advantage of the fact?  Our premises is home based so I don’t have to drive to work and Ben only lives 2 minutes away so between us we hardly travel any  business kilometres so we are not contributing to Perth’s increasing traffic madness.


In the next few weeks we will be introducing composting kilo bags to most of our cafés.  These are still in their trial phase so will not be offered to retail customers yet.  They do not have a resealable zip but do have a freshness valve.  We also do not know the shelf life of the bag so we can’t risk putting them in the shops.  


Of course, many of you already know that we distribute and promote composting sustainable takeaway containers, and of course everything we have is Certified Organic and Fairtrade where possible.


We are going to strive towards Carbon Neutral certification but I thought I’d just mention a few of the measures that we take to be ‘greener’ in the meantime.

          Welcome to Julia at Harvest Health in Joondalup.  You can now buy retail packs and take away coffee.  See our list of

          retailers for more information. 

 

          What does 'Organic' mean? What is the difference between Certified Organic and organic?  When you buy a bag of BioBean

          Coffee you are guaranteed that it is 100% CERTIFIED ORGANIC.

 

          We are currently the only roaster in Perth that is genuinely Certified Organic.  Much of the coffee available is roasted

          from certified beans but this is not the same and is NOT Certified Organic.  We are audited and inspected to ensure that

          no chemicals are used anywhere on our premises.  This includes cleaning and servicing the roaster, cleaning the office, pest

          control etc. etc. We have to show proof that there is an uninterrupted paper trail from the grower to the sealed pack. 

          This is easy for us as we only roast Organically Certified Fairtrade coffee.

 

          Only when you see one of the recognised Australian certifiers' logo on a product is that product organically

          certified.   Eg. USDA is the certification of the green bean and is an American certifying body and is NOT a recognised

          Australian brand. 

 

          Fairtrade? If a product says it is Fairtrade but does not bear to logo then you are not guaranteed that the

          premium is being paid back to the grower.  The chances are that the product is simply more expensive!

 

          Finally - if you can't beat them then I suppose you have to join them.  BioBean does have a facebook page!

          We will be running a competition during Fairtrade Fortnight with free giveaways for product likes.  Watch this space

          for more information.

 

          The Organic Circle has opened in shop 1, Pioneer Village Armadale. Willow and Ria (formerly The Soultree Café in

          Glen Forrest) have opened an exciting new shop.  More information soon.  Drop in for a cup of coffee.

 

           BioBean Coffee is now available in Kununurra!  Go and see Kylie and Danny at the Kununurra Market on a Saturday

           between 8 and 12 pm.  This market is run from April to September and located at Whitegum Park in the centre of

           town.  A great way to catch up with friends whilst relaxing and enjoying the local arts, crafts and produce that 

           Kununurra has to offer.

 

 

           We are pleased to welcome Nicolette Murray.  Nikki has opened up a café at number 16 Warren Road Nannup.  WA 

           Phone Nikki on 95761351 for opening hours.  She is currently serving Ethiopian Sidamo.

 

           If you are down in Nannup for the music festival or just passing through any time have a cup of coffee in her

           shady courtyard.

BioBean Coffee is a young company with firm principles towards producing a quality product, but not compromising on our ethical stance. As such, the only coffee we roast is both Organically and Fairtrade Certified. While this might limit the range of coffees available to us, we only choose the very best that the market has to offer.

 


We have no desire to confuse customers with a vast range of blends that can only be distinguished from each other with great difficulty. The five varieties we provide presently are single-origin, and each has its own distinctive flavour.

BioBean Coffee is roasted using the simplest means possible, gas fired ovens and with no computer controlled roast profiles, but by hand. This ensures that every roast is undertaken with meticulous care, and what ends up in your coffee cup is of the highest quality.

 


We seal our coffee in special bags with one-way valves to release any excess gas from the freshly roasted coffee. This allows us to package the warm coffee beans minutes after roasting, without having to degas the beans and destroy the aroma, as will be found with vacuum packaged coffees.
