    CoffeeSnobs FairCrack - The Fourth Pulper!

    Woo Hoo!!!
    Coffeesnobs FairCrack has just sponsored the fourth pulper in Tanzania!

    Like the others this one is on the southern slopes of Kilimanjaro, this time its in a village called Kyaurinde.

    This pulper is larger than the previous ones and uses two flat disks instead of a drum to do the pulping. It was designed and made in Kenya and should allow a even faster and better production of the ripe coffee fruit.

    Bente has done an amazing job again getting this pulper up and running in the village and we all hope that it provides the coffee farmers of Kyaurinde many years of great coffee production.

    Well done to Bente, CoffeeSnobs members and site sponsors everywhere. You did this!

    Yes, it defaults to 1-20 in the drop-down list else it could be pages long.

    After selecting 20 units and hitting the [go] button you will get an option of up to 40 units, adding the 40 gives you the option of 60 etc etc. *

    or you can edit the following URL to be the amount you wanted to donate:

    Code:
    http://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au/ViewProduct.aspx/115-faircrack-direct?SetQuantity=25
    (where 25 is the dollar value you want to select)

    Everyone involved is the whole of CS! *
    The sum of the parts is far greater than any individual can ever be.

    Well done snobs!
    This is certainly a community that Im proud to be a piece of

    Ok, might be bad form to quote my own post but once again its true, Im like a little kid at Christmas as Bente has just sent another movie from the FairCrack #4 project at Kyaurinde, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

    I have just up loaded it to youtube, its awesome. Bente is not only a caring and helpful lady doing amazing things she also appears to have a flair for film making too!

    Check it out...
    (and enjoy the funky African sound track too)

    Excellent

    Is Bente eligible for the 10000th CS comp?

    Youtube is a fairly big audience and has helped spread our name across the globe.

    Id be happy to see her get at least an honourable mention.

    Re: CoffeeSnobs FairCrack - The Fourth Pulper!

    Well done to all involved, there is so much coffee love going around I cant beleive it. *[smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]

    We have the first batch of "Fair Crack" Rononi to buy and roast, and donate more to Fair Crack.

    Andy, Bente and Co have another pulper up and running.

    Beanscene has arrived with a subscription renewal, with $5.00 going to Fair Crack again this year. And another coffee machine to give away.

    I am really enjoying all these warm and fuzzies, and thats before Ive had a coffee ;D Cant wait to taste the Rononi in a couple of days.

    With Santa doing such a great job, I wonder what the Easter Bunny will come up with to top it ;D More Fair Crack pulped coffee would be great

    Well deserved. You are definitely one of FairCracks biggest supporters, and I wouldnt be surprised if you are the biggest individual contributor.

    Definitely. Its priceless.

    I cant help trying to imagine what the growers felt when they saw the fruits of their labour being sent to those who have lovingly contributed to help ensure its success.

    Re: CoffeeSnobs FairCrack - The Fourth Pulper!

    Im still amazed at how easy it has been to contribute to this project (for us snobs, that is). No chook raffles, lamington drives or other fundraising efforts to take part in, nor any other donation process to respond to.

    All Ive had to do is:
    - buy top quality beans at a good price
    - enjoy an interesting home roasting hobby
    - save lots of money compared to buying commercially roasted coffee
    - enjoy drinking lots of fantastic coffees

    Not what Id call a sacrifice!

    Sorry if Ive made this point before somewhere, but the win-win nature of Faircrack is unique, and I never cease to be impressed by it.

    Ive just ordred a batch of green Tanzania Kyaurinde, after having built a KKTO style roaster. I hadnt realised what a great scheme FairCrack was until now.

    Congratulations CoffeeSnobs on such a win win project! I shall continue to support the scheme, and extol its virtue to anyone who will listen.

    Re: CoffeeSnobs FairCrack - The Fourth Pulper!

    I just heard from Bente that she was talking to the chairman in one of the villages that we provided a pulper. He said that they have never had more than 5 kids sent to secondary school for as long as he can remember and now that the pulper and raised drying beds have been in the Village for just 3 years they are sending 60 kids to secondary school this year.

    Im gobsmacked. Thats an amazing difference to a generation and the positive flow-on could keep rolling for years.

    Stand proud Snobs!
