Where can I buy your beans from?

Where do the beans come from? 

Our beans taste the way they do because we pick the raw materials for their flavour, not their yield. In 2022, we sourced from the best producers in the countries below. When harvest run out, we look to other small producers to top up our supply.
Queen Butter Beans: Poland
Queen Chickpeas: Spain
Organic White Beans: Spain
Organic Chickpeas: Turkey
 
We're wanting to support as many local producers as possible - that's why we're also looking to develop British bean products!

My jars are broken!

We are sorry to hear about this, it is an unfortunate side effect of the transportation of heavy glass objects. We try to keep our packaging as lean as possible, and would rather have the occasional breakage than use lots of protective items which are bad for the environment. Please send us a picture of the following: The courier label: This is to prove the parcel is delivered by the responsible courier The external damage: This is to prove the parcel is damaged or repacked by the responsible courier The internal damage: This is to prove that the product was damaged Once we have received this - along with the quantities of jars broken, we will provide you with a refund for all the jars that were broken. 

I can’t get into my jars - the lid is too tight!

We have learnt a trick that will change your life! Tap the jar against a hard surface a few times. This will loosen the lid and make it easy to get in. Get in touch with us if this still does not work and we will be happy to help you.

How can I find recipes for Inspiration?

Our Instagram is always a great place to find recipe inspiration, you can even save the ones you like for later. Alternatively, we have a recipe page on our our website with tons of amazing recipes from other bean champs!

My Beans haven’t arrived yet!

If you want to see where your order is - please use the tracking link in your email. If you have not received the link, the beans are still in the warehouse waiting to be dispatched. Please be patient - but get in touch with orders@boldbeanco.com if you want some clarification.

The cap is stuck to the lid!

We are aware that some caps are stuck too tight to the lids. We are looking at removing these, and aim to do so by Summer 2022. 

You also mention you work with heirloom varieties. Can we learn more about them?

A note on heirloom varieties - the majority of the beans traded globally are highly commoditized. This means that they are grown for yield and with almost no regard for flavour and quality. We choose beans which are less widely grown but more known for their taste and texture. 
Queen Butter Beans. These are the Piekny Jas Tyczny variety, which are a subspecies of phaseolus coccineus (The same family of beans as the Greek's Gigante and the Spanish's Judion de la Granja). They have a thinner skin and are far creamier than the phaseolus lunatus which you'll find in all supermarkets and the majority of butter beans available. They grow really well in sunny climates. 
Queen Chickpeas. These are what the Spanish call "Garbanzo extra" which means that they are "Extra Large Chickpeas". They are grown in mild climates with warmer winters and that's why we get ours from Andalucia. These are a subspecies of the Kabuli variety, which tends to grow bigger. But on top of that, we select the biggest beans from each harvest to ensure the incredible texture and size our Queen Chickpeas offer you. 
Organic White Beans: Andalucia, Spain. These beans are the Organic Alubia Blanca. This is a more common bean variety (subspecies of haricot bean and called phaseolus vulgaris (meaning common bean). They're native to Spain and are wonderfully versatile. What you tend to find with heirloom varieties, is that they struggle with yields as it is, so sometimes need a bit more help with conventional farming methods, this is why we can't currently offer organic butter beans, we can't seem to source them outside of China!). 
Organic Chickpeas: Andalucia, Spain. These are our favourites, the Pedrolisano chickpea, a subspecies of the desi variety. They're not known for their size, but are known for their nutty flavour and to make the best hummus.  

Have you or members of your team been to visit any of the farms to understand their farming practices? 

Yes! Amelia visited Spain in 2021 and went to some of the farms who supply us. They are incredible and I saw first hand that they produce with a real respect for the soil. They refuse to use drying agents (which are chemical liquids industrial farms use to speed up the drying out of the bean) and plant a range of beans every year to ensure diversity within their fields. We haven't yet visited our Polish supplier but are planning a trip in the next year or so.  

How long do the beans last?

The beans have a long shelf life, and can be stored in a cool dry place for a long time. Once opened, they should be refrigerated and consumed within 3-5 days.
