Want to explore the world of coffee but don’t have the time? We help you make it easy. Our master roaster samples coffees from around the world, selecting only the best farms to send to you. We roast, experiment and cup each and every supplier, figuring out the optimal levels to bring out the best feature of each whole coffee bean we have on offer. Whether you enjoy tea-like light roasts that highlight terroir, fruity, caramel like coffees for drip and aeropress or richly dark coffees for espresso we have figured out the optimal roasting time for your preferred method of preparation. Let us take you on a journey to exploring freshly roasted coffees from Africa, Asia Pacific and South America from your office or home.
BeanCurious is proudly based in Hong Kong. Our coffees feature photos taken by us and our subscribers of rare locations all across our fine city. Highlighting unexplored, out-of-the-way locations we hope to bridge Hong Kong’s vibrant, local community with international coffee farms looking to do the same for their communities. Through something as simple and rich as coffee we hope to promote the idea that we are all in this together.
Choose Your Style
Light, dark or pick the “omakase style” Roaster’s Choice and let our master roaster decide for you.
Every week we’ll fire up the machine, roast, pack and ship your beans via S.F. Express or HK Post. The place of origin of our coffee changes every four weeks.
Welcome every Friday with a mailbox filled with the aroma of gourmet coffee.
If you like your coffee lighter and more delicate, this is your subscription. Your coffee will have more nuanced/tea-like flavours, fruit and citrus notes.
(For those who know coffee lingo, this is your light to city roast)
Our most popular option. Our master roaster will adjust the roast level to preserve the best notes of the coffee while trying to reduce the acidity.
We keep the roast from Medium to Dark range.
The Dark (full city to full city+) is for those who like their coffee more nutty, dark chocolate and toasted. If you have an espresso machine, pick this option.
We only bill you for the coffee you receive. If you find you have too much or too little coffee you can adjust the quantity at any time by logging in to your account.
- The coffee of origin that we ship out changes every four weeks, we will send out a newsletter on the roast just before shipping.
- Cut-off time for the weekly roast is 9am on Mondays.
- It may take up to 10 days for you to receive your shipment if you order just after the cut-off.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
That’s cool! Try some other subscription services and roasters around our city. If you find someone better let us know! We’d love to talk shop with them.
