thanks Andy and Happy Easter to you and all your family too!
Just a quick heads-up
BeanBay won’t be until after Easter, when exactly I do not know yet but I’m optimistic that it will be sooner rather than later.
We are nearing the end of a ground-up BeanBay rewrite so that it performs better, supports roasted beans and most importantly for our friends at coffee origin the FairCrack donations will be on all the bean sales.
I will edit this post with the details of the April BeanBay when they are known and will email everyone using the email address that is set in your [profile] tab.
Have a great Easter how ever you choose to celebrate it,
BeanBay is NOW!
thanks Andy and Happy Easter to you and all your family too!
Peace and beans to you and yours.
Thnx andy your awesome ;D
Well Easter Bunny will be coming a little late..... still have good reserve stocks so no probs.
Good luck with your re-write of the system..... Im sure it will get hammered at the next BeanBay.
Ah not really my rewrite... (I think I was using the "royal we"). Im just the guy with the silly ideas who is proding the code guy Matt who then suggests another better whacky idea. The end result should be great.
Good one Andy,
Have a great Easter, no work! (Ha.)
thanks Andy have a great easter. cant wait fot the Bean Bunny :P
No probs Andy, have a great Easter.
BTW can you try and stock Bean Bay with Beans Im either not interested in, or already have plenty of, cos unlike last month I dont need to buy any more for a month or two.
Now that I have recovered from the heart attack because I thought Id missed the bean bay - have a happy Easter Andy.
Happy Easter to all CSrs *
Happy Easter Everyone!
From me too..... Have a great Easter everyone [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

You mean soon itll be "Bean me up Scotty.... sorry Andy"
Forgive me Ive been staring at an Iroast all afternoon............
And dont mention the chocolate overload....aaarrrggghhh.
Still got some sumatra mandeling, ethiopian yergachev and kenya aa, but always hanging out for something else... dont know what it is but enough is just not enough... you just cant have too much coffee, can you?
I dont know if Im a snob or just selfish, but Id be feeding them stovetop percolator with first crack/gra vac-pack with sugar and milk so everyone gets off on the coffee aroma, and the taste is neither here nor there, but you get to have your 5 double espressos with the 100g left ;)Originally Posted by ozscott link=1175695694/0#14 date=1175824415
On topic, I came searching for the beanbay, wondering what beans are in this month, so am looking forward to it. Good to hear the Fair Crack will be implemented as well.
So when are you going to let us know what will be available Andy???
Fess up. Hands up all those hanging around the computer looking for Andys email and believing that it will come ...any moment now...yep, any second...wont be long.... is that it? Nope. Darn.
Ill fess up Robusto - I logged in to take a look, though any suggestions that Im resisting the urge to make any posts in case I get myself into trouble and am sent to the corner are untrue!Originally Posted by robusto link=1175695694/15#22 date=1176287869
;D ;D ;D
Dennis -- what are you doing out of the corner? Get back there quick before anyone notices.
waiting... working outside...back inside, just having a look: nope, no beanbay... go shopping.. back home, quickly checking emails... counting beans.... check wallet....oops.... back online, no mail... pheww, i can use next weeks housekeeping then... set alarm to check emails... route emails to phone...
so lucky i like tea too..... ;D ;)
I think this is all of us at the moment. The earl grey from Decembers? beanbay has been getting a work out at my house.Originally Posted by Lizzie link=1175695694/15#25 date=1176291133
Vaiting, vaiting, alvays waiting... I dis is driving my cwazy.....
Is it Bean Bay yet?????
Can someone please put us out of our collective misery??
This is as bad as the iiNet.... "when are the new internet plans coming out" thread over on Whirlpool.... (a site I also frequent)... It has reached 55 pages of speculation....
So to add to the speculation here.... I put my money on Friday the 20th at about 2p.m.
But one thing is for sure - well know when Andy lets us know. ;) :)
Hey all is not lost, thanks to a fellow cs I just scored a couple of keys of reasonable african at cost plus freight, so if you all look around amongst your brethren here you just might find a nugget or two.
Perhaps a Mysore nugget or two!
Yep me too im checking email every so often more then i normally do...
BeanBay will be before tomorrow!
Email and explaination to follow.
well tomorrow is in 20 minutes.....Originally Posted by Andy Freeman link=1175695694/30#32 date=1176298620
WOW thats short notice!!!
really short notice ;D
Looks like it pays to lurk around in the "wee small hours" ;)Originally Posted by Segrave link=1175695694/30#34 date=1176298889
Ive been dying for a BeanBay at 2:00 a.m. to sort out the real caffeine addicts ;D
Im ready :P
Yep, short notice!
============ email ===============
Sorry for the very short notice but BeanBay will kick off 11:59 tonight.
The reason for the short notice is two fold.
CoffeeSnobs is in the middle of a ground-up rewrite and we don’t want to release an untested version of the software on a live BeanBay sale. So we are forced to use the very good but problematic under load BeanBay V1.
To lessen the load I have just decided to give nearly no notice and do it a silly o’clock so that the “thump” of BeanBay is smoothed out a little.
The Beans on offer are:
Brazil Monte Carmelo sun dried $8.50
Columbia Volcan Galeras Supremo Bold $9.00
Ethiopian Harrar Naturals $9.50
Indian Monsooned Peaberry A $9.50
Jamaican Blue Mountain Mavis Bank Estate $98.50
Peru (Villa Rica) Grace Estate $9.00
The Blue Mountain will be in 500gm lots, the others in the standard 2.5kg.
With any luck the next BeanBay will under the new software and will have much better notice.
Sorry again and I hope you understand why I needed to do this
(and please don’t fill my email inbox with hate mail!)
In the starting blocks ready for action.... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Im ready!! Lets go! Lucky i stayed up tonight
Fantastic this is great!!!!
So how many people is doing it now in the middle of night?
OOK this being my first BeanBay r they price/KG and you have to buy atleast 2.5kg?
Yep on both counts.... Good luck by the way.Originally Posted by Segrave link=1175695694/30#43 date=1176299739
2.5kg minimum segrave...
what to get, what to get....
Paranoia pays off ;)
Nice, Im here for once. :D
yep and yep... all the beans are in 2.5kg lots (with the exception of the Blue Mountain) and the prices are per kilo.
Thats great Viviane, you often have trouble getting to BeanBay launches.
Phew... thats one less hate mail in my inbox in the morning.
