With the current offerings, lots are talking about being roasted to CS9 or 10. Which brand are going to be most exciting roasted at lighter profiles for pourover?
A quick question - I'm coming to Sydney next week for a few days. I'm considering buying some greens from you to bring back to NZ as the range available as well as the price/kg (even with exchange rate) is much better than over here. The problem will be getting them past quarantine in NZ. I'd declare them of course, but I know from having researched it in the past that imported green coffee needs a treatment certificate with it if it gets treated at source so I'm not sure I'd get them through.
So I was wondering what you thought my chances were, and if maybe you'd be able to include some sort of paperwork with them to show that they've been treated. And also if I order them now through Beanbay will they be with me in Sydney by Friday at the latest? Thanks in advance for any help. Reply via PM if you prefer.
I'd imagine it should be Ok between Oz and NZ since both countries share similar quarantine protocols, as far as I know...
Would be best to contact your quarantine service over in NZ first I'd reckon, re: packaging requirements, etc just to be safe...
Yeah should be ok I reckon Mal, but want to be sure. I rang biosecurity yesterday, but they're only open Mon-Fri so will try again tomorrow.

The CoffeeSnobs - BeanBay - Green Coffee - Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi Naturals and the CoffeeSnobs - BeanBay - Green Coffee - Kenya AAA Bold have both been in the Brazen over the last fortnight at a lighter roast depth and both were beautiful.
...but as always with home roasting, the best thing you can do is experiment and find what suits your own tastes best, far better than following someone elses!
So many questions, so few clear answers.

Not good (my best guess). You really want to do your homework first.

No. You are asking for a fumigation certificate, which would only be valid if I fumigated your order after packing it (and that's not happening here)

Depends. What you order, when you order it, when you pay for it and how you are shipping it. We can get stuff into "Sydney" from overnight to a couple of days after payment with most shipping methods. Not knowing any of the quantities or methods I say... Order and pay on Monday before 3pm and you should have it Wednesday.
Thanks Andy. I might leave it this time and do a bit more research to see if it's possible on another trip.
