    Re: BeanBay

    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.

    Re: BeanBay

    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.

    Re: BeanBay

    If the beanbay is up this week, the beans should be on their way between Easter and Anzac Day.

    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.......

    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]

    Re: BeanBay

    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

    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.

    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.......

    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?

    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.

    Re: BeanBay

    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 store my beans with my wine as it provides additional thermal mass to reduce temperature variation.

    Re: BeanBay

    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.
