    ==================



    Another big coffee month passes and we around to BeanBay again already.

    The Aroma Festival kicked off at the rocks and looked like it was even bigger than last year with lots of CS sponsors and CSrs taking over the machines and playing with the shiny toys.  I think its nearly big enough to make it a two day event now or move it to a bigger venue to thin the crowds a bit.

    BeanBay!

    After seeing the Red African Cocoa sell out in minutes we have ordered a big pile for this month so everyone that missed-out should be able to get some.  Speaking of big piles, we have less varieties on offer this month but bigger volumes of each so that should help settle the initial feeding frenzy.

    BeanBay will kick-off Tuesday 22nd JULY .

    9:00pm QLD, NSW, VIC, TAS
    8:30pm SA, NT
    7:00pm WA
    11:00pm NZ

    On offer are new crops of:

    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe $9.00/kg*
    Mexico Veracruz Organic HG $9.50/kg*
    Yemen Bani Ismail $21.50/kg*

    Along with some:
    Mountain Top Estate Bin549, Bin478 and Bin35
    Indian Monsooned Robusta AA $7.50/kg*

    Cote dIvoire Red African Cocoa $15.00/500g*

    * All include a $0.50/kg FairCrack donation.

    Pickup points are dotted all over the country and we also have a new one in Launceston this month.  The freight to the pickup points around the country this month are again subsidised by site sponsor payments regardless of which state you are in and is just $1.00/kg.

    The Australia Post satchels had a price increase this month but thanks again to the site sponsors we can keep them at the old price of 3kg-$10 and 5kg-$15.


    Have a great coffee month CSrs,


     Andy.

    Have to admit I was a little worried for a while

      Yes, sadly it was. I read it 5 times before hitting send and just didnt see that.

      I just told Gendel.... July rhymes with "sigh".

      ;-)

              I bags 1st order on the Chocolate as I missed out on the last 2 bean bays

              Mexican HG may be a good substitute for Nicaraguan HG bold??
              Anyway I know what I need to order & should be home from work in time

              Can I ask a question my daughter tells me Campos do a hot chocolate drink called melted chocolate pot?
              How can I replicate it??

              I am sure the Cote dIvoire Red African Cocoa will taste better
              But curiosity drives me to try

                Only one thought Ben... try it as a single origin first. It works great!

                  I am sure the Mexican/Spanish salutation is
                  Mr = senior
                  Mrs = seniora
                  Miss = seniorita

                  But who cares we are here for the beans (not Mexican jumping beans) :

                        Apart from the waiter from Bar-cell-onn-ah my only other spanish came from an Argentinian high school mate that taught me how to swear.

                        I wont type that here though.

                              Hi runfast- Id suggest that the best way is to place two separate orders
