When testing different coffee beans it’s best to try different methods of preparing the coffee. Using a basic french press, Mr. Coffee Pot, and a Chemex pour-over will always give you a full picture of what the beans are like. By preparing the Guatemala San Sebastian medium roast in a couple of different ways we picked up notes of fruit and citrus. A key attribute we liked about the coffee bag labels from Banyan is they include the process of how the beans were harvested. Our favorite roast was labeled “Natural.” The other two roasts were labeled “washed” and “wet-hulled.”
Now that we’ve talked about our favorite beans, a key benefit that stands out to us about Banyan Coffee making them different is their MOBILE COFFEE CART! This trendy little cart can be booked directly on their website HERE for events of all kinds and it’ll travel from Bradenton to Tampa to Saint Pete to Orlando and beyond. If you aren’t based in the Tampa Bay area, you can still order their amazing beans BUT you will miss out on their cute coffee cart local sensation. When we first started talking to Abbey and Josh they warmly welcomed us to visit the mobile coffee cart at the Bradenton Farmers Market where they make their rounds with their loyal fans.
