    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale

    Wednesday 19th Jan
    8pm AEDT (East Coast Daylight Savings Time)

    7pm QLD
    8pm ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    7.30pm SA
    6.30pm NT
    5pm WA

    The beans available at the above date/times will be:

    PNG Kone Ka Estate Peaberry $11/kg inc FairCrack
    From shadows of Mt Hagen comes this triple washed Western Highlands Peaberry. Im told by our man on the ground that "Kone Ka" means "nice place" and obviously the coffee plants on this estate agree.  Super clean and easy to roast, keep an eye on it towards the end of the roast as it can run away pretty quickly.  Sweet, drying finish and and works a treat in milk.

    Rwanda Gisenyi  $13/kg inc FairCrack
    This Fairtrade COOPAC coop coffee comes from the Rutsiro & Rubavu Districts near Gisenyi, Rwanda.  Washed but unscreened the sample roasts were at their best on the high side of CS9.  At that point it was full of cocoa and sultanas at a lighter roast the cocoa was still prominent but the sultana like fruit swapped for citrus.  Roast dark for great espresso, lighter for syphon.

    Kenya Kandara AA  $21/kg inc FairCrack
    This coffee was processed by the Kandara Farmers Cooperative Society in central Kenya.  Screened to a large AA size this washed and well graded bean roasts really well.  Like many Kenyan coffees it will end up darker for the same given temperature so roast by probe, not your normal colour depth. In the cup it is easily the sweetest Kenyan coffee I have ever tried, amazing as CS10 long black and finishes with crisp green apple acidity.  Expensive but really stunning coffee.

    Also available:
    Peru Ceja de Selva Estate
    Ethiopian Gambella Sundried
    PNG Wahgi AA
    Ethiopian Harrar Longberry
    Brazil Pulped Natural
    Indian Monsoon Malabar AA

          i love that Cafe! and Claude does make a great flat white. Sadly i am working on the 22nd so i will have to get the Star Trek guys to deliver. i really should also test them out on my VBM and see if they can make a coffee half as good as Claude ;D.

            ...as mentioned in a different thread, Claude has sold the cafe and is looking at new options in the city. He is returning for 1 day only for errr, umm, not sure Im allowed to say it out loud but its something special so wear your best duds and brush your hair if you are picking up beans.
            ;D
            I did a special roast of Keffa Han blend last Wednesday so that should be peaking on Saturday for shots. Should be a fun morning.

                Just saw the synoptic weather chart for Saturday, and the winds east north east. Sorry to tell you that.

                  I think I know what the secret is...... ;D Yes some sartorial effort and grooming would help reflect well on all of us I suspect.

                  Almost wish I didnt have an appointment with Chris at Talk Coffee at 11am!

                  Almost.

                      Im glad Veneziano in West End Brisbane did not go under the Brisbane River. I found myself thinking of them and many others in the last week. It must have come close

                            The better half just told me that were going out for dinner tomorrow night.
                            Would it be considered rude if i cancelled?

                            I think ill just have to break my cardinal rule of mobile phones in restaurants and access the Beanbay that way.

                              I was certainly hoping it would be from the south west for you as it normally is in the winter (brr). Then for sure you will smell the aromas from Andys or Coffee Cartels, even a Chokito choc smells from Phosphate Road, North Shore.

                              :-? BTW Andy, what is the Keffa Han blend? Will it be available to us or will the suspense build for the next 24 hours?
