BOLD BEAN CO'S JOURNEY STARTED IN A BASEMENT FLAT IN MADRID...
PICTURE THIS: an Erasmus student with very little to do. Hungover from another night filled with terrible broken Spanish, Amelia found herself hungry + lazy. Next thing you know, she's eating creamy heirloom butter beans straight out of a jar. Amelia remembers closing her eyes to properly immerse herself in that moment, it was the taste of natural, creamy sumptuousness. It was the taste of a BOLDLY BRILLIANT bean.
After three years of working in the food sustainability space with top London chefs, a little legume appreciation turned into a full on obsession. Amelia wasn't just inspired by restaurants using high quality beans creatively, but also learned from those around her in food sustainability, Amelia realised that BEANS WILL CHANGE THE WORLD, someone just needs to start spreading the gospel.
How to convert a bunch of Brits to a bunch of #Beanchamps? Give them the BEST beans on the planet.
HOW ARE BEANS ARE GOING TO SAVE THE WORLD?
They can NOURISH our growing populations (packed with fibre + vitamins keeping you VERY FULL + HAPPY!)
They keep our soils healthy (the crops are natural fertilisers)
They're THE original plant protein. Aka, the most natural meat replacement there ever was.
Our mission: We're here to make you obsessed with beans
BY GIVING YOU THE BEST OF BEANS!
A LIL' BRAG ABOUT WHY WE TASTE SO GOOD
Each bean variety is suited to different growing conditions, we source our beans from the best possible climate for each one.
Our beans are heirloom... AKA ancient varieties of beans which prioritise FLAVOUR over yield. They're the best beans from each harvest, specially selected for quality.
COOKED WITH PATIENCE
Bog standard supermarket beans get cooked, en masse, in the tins you buy them in. Tins need to be heated up quickly, to a SUPER high temp, losing the nutrition + banging beany flavour along the way. We cook ours slowly, in small batches + pour the brothy beans into glass jars.
We season our beans throughout the cooking process like proper chefs do! Their natural flavour is then enhanced in a way you simply CAN'T replicate after.
THE TEAM BEHIND THE BEAN
Somehow, Amelia managed to find a group of very talented people who felt the same way. We're now a group of five with a big ole dream:
TO MAKE A WORLD FULL OF LEGUME LOVERS!
