What?? what april? :o
I wasnt happy either, coz I nearly ran out of stash.
Im far better prepared this year if we happen to skip a beanbay.
No April Fools here, indeed there was no April Poll.
OMG i think i head is going to explode :o
i hope it dosent happen this april
Oh, no.. Im going to be out of beans :( better to retrict the intake until the beanbay is up. :)
Do what I did - try a sponsor...I can vouch for coffee hit!Originally Posted by Coffee Kid link=1175341351/0#6 date=1175424837
I really hope we can sneak it in before Easter... but until its announced there are zero guarantees.
Everyone will be sent an email to the address that you have under [profile] as soon as we know the date.
If the beanbay is up this week, the beans should be on their way between Easter and Anzac Day.
Your a good man Andy, ;D
Yes you are indeed a good man Andy.
I have just rearranged my green bean cupboard and what a surprise I can fit more in.
Now to sit by the PC and wait.......
Woo Hoo Andy! [smiley=vrolijk_26.gif]
It must feel wonderful to make so many people happy. It must also be funny seeing our anticipation and reactions to our first beanbay - Ive checked my email address is all ok and have arranged to take the week off!!! [smiley=lolk.gif] [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]
ok..now that post made me laugh dennis!
Wushoes, I dont think hes kidding...... ;)
Wushoes/David: thankyou, I like making people laugh 8-)
Viviane: you know me too well ;D
I have left a stash of money in the bank account to ensure that I can buy a bit mor this month.
I just hope some of the beans I have been really wanting to get my hands on are available.
(oh and i have a good stash to get me through if there is no bean bay) :P
Andy and the mods preparing this months offerings....
Is andy the short one?? ;D
Haha Dennis... thats a funny one
Can I rain on the parade and suggest Andy (and the rest of us) wait until AFTER Easter....
I wont be sitting by my PC. I wont be anywhere near a PC. And That may well be the case for so many others.
Perfect!! :POriginally Posted by robusto link=1175341351/15#20 date=1175553017

Is Robusto speaking in tongues?Originally Posted by robusto link=1175341351/15#23 date=1175558694
Unless it can be done today (Tuesday) or tomorrow. * :) :-[ :P :-/ ;D ;)Originally Posted by robusto link=1175341351/15#23 date=1175558694
Im just glad Ive been really keen (overzealous?, nah no way) and bought heaps of beans over the last couple of beanbays. So Im not desperate yet ;)
Sorry Robusto, I couldnt refuse that one. And I dont think I could be so mean as to want to deny you the pleasure of securing more of the green dream.......Originally Posted by robusto link=1175341351/15#23 date=1175558694
...or could I? * [smiley=evil.gif];D
Robusto - Ive had some success sharing bean bay bidding duties with JavaB over here. Hes been able to buy when I am not online and Ive been able to return the favour for him - are there any snobs in your area who might bid for you - and phone you before hand to let you know what is on offer?
Im down to 10kg and very little single origins left other than as blenders.
I hope my mailman has a strong back. ;)
...I would love to be down to 10kg...
And here was I worried about being below 30kg. . .
a kg?? what is that??? i just have 10-15 beans in a few plastic bags, left over form the starter pack...
Lizzie, a kilo is approx 1/50th of my current bean holding :-[Originally Posted by Lizzie link=1175341351/30#34 date=1175685196
Chris u must sleep on a bed of beans. Now thats luxury ::)
I have a bit more than 10kg but only roast for emergencies and a bit of education.
When I have my new heat gun powered contraption finished I may roast more often.
I wonder if coffee beans could replace wheat as a heat pack filler?
Then again Ive already experimented with microwave roasting and survived to deplore the results. . .
I have a feeling the next bean bay is going to be up soon:)
I store my beans with my wine as it provides additional thermal mass to reduce temperature variation.Originally Posted by grendel link=1175341351/30#39 date=1175691148
Having too many varieties can be a dilemma. Which to roast together. Which to keep apart.... Sometimes it all becomes too hard, so I resort to scooping some from whichever bag is closest without even reference to the lable. After all, they are all bought beans of quality and destined for the barbecue.
(actually the main aim of this seemingly pointless post is to supercede the last Knock Box entry : "Oh no, Im out of beans".
Im tired of seeing it.
This should solve that ...for a while.
