  • GREEN BeanBay - Wednesday 19th March.

    [hr]

    Did you see that CoffeeSnobs is nearing 5000 members? Its hard to believe we have grown so fast and yet still manage to keep the fun, friendly community atmosphere that we are all proud to be a part of – give yourself a pat on the back! As part of the celebrations we a running a competition that will conclude when we hit the 5000th member. The idea was borrowed from JJJ’s "beat the drum" contest a few years ago, entry is FREE and all you have to do is:

    Expose the CoffeeSnobs logo or web address to as many people as possible and/or as creatively as possible.

    We already have some great prizes and we hope the pool of sponsored prizes continues to grow. It should be a fun contest. See the web site for more details:

    On the coffee social front we have just had AASCA Barista championships all around the country and a pile of CSrs being the stars of the show at Celebrate the Bean. We have plenty more events on the calendar too including the Victorian legs of the AASCA Barista championships with Sydney and ACT to follow in April. Im also looking forward to catching up with fellow CSrs and site sponsors at CafeBiz at Randwick on the 13th and 14th April which should be a great long weekend. Always busy, but always good!

    Have a great month,

    Enjoy!

    Andy.

    Gday Andy

    The Aceh Arabica Gr1 - is that a Sumatran Mandehling? Is it washed or unwashed?

    Cheers

      The Aceh is the same style of bean, wet hulled, very clean and well graded with a deep translucent colour.  

      All the bean descriptions will appear in BeanBay when the items do.

        I love seeing Yemen on the list - always a favourite in the Grendel household

                      A quick protocol question: Do we have an agreeable limit on how much we order, so as to allow as many as possible to buy? I havent done a beanbay before and dont want to commit some terrible oops! Rob

                        Gday Rob,

                        No mate, theres no real limit as such, apart from buying in 2.5Kg lots (the smallest we do). With really highly regarded and much sought after beans like the Yemen though, it pays to get in quick because itll probably be all gone within a few minutes and I guess a bit of fellow member consideration doesnt go astray in this situation.

                        All the best,
                        Mal.

                          Thanks Mal, sounds good! Im still in the process of trying to taste test all the different origins I can, so small quantities are best for me. Looking forward to tomorrow night!
                          Regards, Rob

                            Very funny first post Javanation, welcome to the mad house CoffeeSnobs.

                            theres no real limit as such, apart from buying in 2.5Kg lots (the smallest we do).
                            Which reminds me to mention...
                            The two teas and the three chocolates are all in 1kg bags and as Mal posted, the green beans are all in 2.5kg lots packed in cotton bags.
