    ...and the phrase "own fault" comes to mind.

    ;D

    I think we have plenty of it so everyone that wants some *should* be able to get it.



    *should* - please refer to phrase above if you miss out.

    Re: Indo Coffee Beans

    Bump ...

    On the topic of Indonesian beans, I have In laws who are growers {a small plot as many locals are in this area of Malang Eastern Java}
    How difficult is it to import coffee beans into Australia given our quarantine regulations?

    Re: Indo

    Andy or someone more experienced in importing greens would Im sure have a more definitive answer than myself, but I did once ask New Zealand customs (who are similar), about taking beans into NZ, and the answer was as long as they are roasted, otherwise you have to go through all sorts of hoops, and possibly get them radiated etc, because they are seeds.

    I also know of someone who recently (last month), considered bringing some greens in from Bali, but were told they would be taken off them by Oz customs, so not to bother.

    Re: Indo

    Roasted in volumes deemed to be for personal use (and NOT Kopi Luwak) is fine, you still have declare them and go through the red queue in customs at the airport.

    Green (and NOT Kopi Luwak) you can bring up to 5kg in your hand luggage but will need an AQIS permit from the country of origin. The permit is an annual renewal and costs $125.

    Importing more than 5kg is whole different beast and as far as I can tell from the AQIS documentation that I have Kopi Luwak is not treated as coffee, its quarantined and will need to be fumigated or cold stored to enter.

    Behmor Brazen - $249 - Free Freight
    Not sure if this is the right area to discuss, but i wonder if anyone thinks the Bali is a good bean to go into the KJM blend?
    Does it share similar characteristics as a Sumatran or Java?
    Just out of hospital minus a vein, so i missed out on this Beanbay Pick-up, so my next question would be if any Indo making its way into the next Beanbay sales?
