  • CS Bean Club August 09 - Ethiopia Harar Star

    OK folks, here we go for the August 09 Bean Club

    The July Bean Club thread on Aceh Gajah Mt will remain open indefinitely.

    If you havent encountered this before, this is the second session of the Bean Club. It runs a bit like a book club: we vote on a bean which will be the feature Bean of The Month and then we roast, taste and/or comment. You dont have to raost your own to participare. You can comment on roasted beans that you bought from Bean Bay Brown or other sources; you can also comment on similar beans.

    Away we go...

    CS Bean Club Poll

    The beans listed will be on offer in BeanBay on Tues 11th August. Some may still be available after. The last 5 beans listed in the poll were carried over from July or earlier.

    The August Bean Bay thread is here. This includes descriptions of the first 5 beans for sale. Descriptions of the other beans can be found in BeanBay

    Poll will be open for a week so cast your votes.

        So, what are people thinking of? I missed out on the bean of the month last month, but would love to get in on this bean club.
        I need to know what to buy. My list was looking like Sumatra Mandheling, Harar Star, maybe some Gambella naturals and why not some Wahgi if Im fast enough.
        Please pipe up if everyone is voting something else so I can buy some of it.

          Well the only way to decide would be to vote; hence the poll at the top of this thread. It means that some people may miss out (especially when a popular or low-supply bean is voted for)

          Im leaving the poll open until the end of the week so you can vote on what you have rather than what you like.

          A way around this would be to nominate two beans rather than one. I dont see a problem with this. The ultimate goal is to share info on roasting, cupping/tasting and blending

            I would have thought that it would be better to post the poll up at the close of BeanBay, once everyones had a chance to acquire the beans of their choice and put a batch through the roaster???

              Im open to suggestions but if we waited until everyone roasted and tried the beans in their order it might be some weeks before some are able to make a decision. The Bean of the Month doesnt have to be the pick of the crop. Just build up a bit of a dosser about the bean.

              My original intention of having the poll before BB was to steer intending participants to try to acquire a selected bean.

                Yes, and maybe create a stampede that allows only a few to grab whats on offer...

                      Good on ya Den. Jokes aside, I think if the Bean Club does take off, it should be a featured bean

                            Thanks Gra

                            While the Harar looks the likely candidate, I will keep the poll open for until this Sunday so if you can hold off until tyeh poll is closed?
