    BeanBay Green - 13th September, 21:00 AEST.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    (sorry... we sent some people an email with the wrong date in the subject line. *The BeanBay date is 13th September at 9pm AEST)


    [hr]


    A quick heads-up, the BeanBay-Green beans will go on sale at 9pm Thursday 13th September.

    In this months selection we have 3 great Central American beans and 3 Aussie offerings from Mountain Top Estate including the very special "MTC Bin 549".

    Costa Rica Tarrazu Dota Coop $10/kg*
    Guatemala Huehuetenango SHB $9/kg*
    El Salvadore San Emilio Farm $9.50/kg*
    Mountain Top Estate Boomerang Peaberry $13.50/kg*
    Mountain Top Estate Boomerang Washed $13.50/kg*
    Mountain Top Estate Bin 549 Fancy $23.50/kg*

    * includes the Faircrack donation.

    FREE FREIGHT TO THE PICKUP POINTS THIS MONTH.

    ...but there is a small catch.

    CoffeeSnobs Brown is going to sponsor the freight to the 10 CS pickup points around the country this month. *The "gotcha" with the FREE FREIGHT is that with your beans this month will have 5 CoffeeSnobs Brown business cards, we ask you spread the good word by giving these to 5 coffee drinking businesses or cafes that would benefit from vastly improved roasted beans. *If this works ok it might become a regular feature of BeanBay Green.

    The pickup points are:

    QLD - Gilkatho - Milton
    SYD - CoffeeParts - Pagewood
    SYD - "Dennis" - Sefton or Sylvania
    SYD - "Nunu" - Carlingford
    CBR - "Cruiserman" - Calwell
    MEL - Veneziano - Abbotsford
    SA *- Simply Coffee - Kent Town
    TAS - "rayzurhed" - Burnie
    TAS - "ParaM" - Hobart
    WA *- Epic - Perth

    With prompt payment we aim for the beans to arrive at the above destinations before Friday 28th September. *Please discuss the details of the pickup in the threads on the forum.

    Of course if you cannot get to pickup point you can always use the very efficient Australia Post Express satchel options that get the beans delivered to your door anywhere in the country.

    I also need to mention the CS calendar. *This is the very last chance to submit a picture for possible inclusion in the 2008 calendar. *The final pictures will be selected by the moderator team before it heads off to the printers. *We are after anything that typifies your CoffeeSnob world.

    Enjoy your coffee!

    Andy.

    Awesome Andy - Ill take 2 of those business cards, I have been working on a couple of cafes over here - not sure what theyll think of bringing over beans from melbourne but I bet I can convince them that it is a better idea than bringing them from italy. . .

    Hi Andy,

    Could you let us know how the centrals are processed? Are they all WP?

    I reckon that those brownbay cards would go down a treat at office buildings. Who wouldnt want weekly deliveries of rotating single origins?

    Cheers,

    Luca

    A great selection (once again) thanks Andy and a terrific incentive to spread the brown bay word.

    Id be happy to do this Andy - especially as it would mean I would get a better cuppa!

    Send a few extra cards and Ill make sure I get to Grinds and a few other places in The Shire ;)

    Re: BeanBay Green - 13th September, 21:00 AEST.

    Hi all
    I have been reading stuff about the Mountain Top Estate on their website.

    * It looks like the Boomerang Washed is "... designed for use as a filter coffee, with medium acidity in a sweet lime and fruit style acid.". There blurb on processing suggests that " Natural Process - is coffee from the over-ripe black fruit which has dried on the tree. " is more suited to espresso.

    * "Bin 549Bin 549 - is a late harvest semi-washed process; this is a little wild and gamey with a fruity, berry-style sweetness, perhaps not for all tastes, but very distinctive. - is a late harvest semi-washed process; this is a little wild and gamey with a fruity, berry-style sweetness, perhaps not for all tastes, but very distinctive."
    and they suggest Bin 35 for espresso.

    Im trying to work out what to get. I have espressos, wife has a bit of milk and water added. (I Use a PID Silvia, Gene Cafe)
    So would these Aussie beans be unsuitable for roasting for espresso?
    Should I stick with a Costa, Guatemala, and Salvadore?
    Advice from those that have tried these or roasted them?

    Im really glad the reception to the CS-Brown card concept is positive. I really like the idea that CS-B might be able to sponsor CS-G freight longer term too. Thanks for the support CSrs!

    Could you let us know how the centrals are processed? Are they all WP?
    Sure:

    The Costa Rica Tarrazu Dota Coop is a miel (sun dried w/fruit, partial washed)

    The Guatemala Huehuetenango and the El Salvadore San Emilio Farm are both semi washed.

    ...a bit of a pattern there. Of all the centrals I have tried from the current crops the less wet processing the better.

    Hi David and welcome to Coffee Snobs and Bean Bay mania.

    I suggest that between now and 9pm tomorrow you do a few of things:
    1. Research the beans on offer - just google the name, to help you decide what you would like to purchase. *Keep in mind that beans are usually sold in 2.5kilo lots unless they are an expensive bean, whereby the minimum quantity offered is smaller, to help make it more affordable.
    2. *Click on the "Buy Green"pic on the left of your screen and browse areound the various tabs so that you are familiar with the screens and process.

    Make sure you are logged on before 9pm, then click on the "buy green" pic once more and you will see the offerings that are available as well as quantities. *I suggest you prioritise what you would like to buy and choose quickly - sometimes beans can disappear in minutes, though this hasnt been the case for quite some time.

    All you need to do then is pay for the beans - the quicker you do this, the quicker you (and others) will receive your beans.

    Hope that helps and will be interested to hear your thoughts on the experience and if you were able to stick to your list, or make and additional purchase that you just couldnt resist...as many of us do!

    Thanks for the advice Dennis - will do.

    A little off topic - Im interested in ordering a set of traditional white coffee & cuppuccino cups, how do I go about it?

    I agree, or at least as far as espresso is concerned. Peter and I cupped the washed and the pulped natural San Emilio a few weeks ago. The washed coffee had an amazing capsicum aroma that didnt really translate into the cup. The pulped natural had more body, but seemed to me to be a bit softer, nuttier and sweeter. It will be interesting to see how it translates to espresso. Actually, I reckon that a blend of each of them would be very interesting.

    If yall forgive me for spewing forth vast generalisations, these origins seem to have built their reputation at the specialty coffee end of the spectrum, at least in part, on meticulously cleanly processed coffees. It seems like they are applying the same attention to detail to wet processing. Which makes sense, if its true that the downside of these techniques is that the whole batch can potentially be ruined. I suppose that this processing method might hurt the farmers in a global market prizing clean coffees for drip filter, but it might pay off with more and more espresso being drunk on a global scale.

    Anyhoo, the San Emilio impressed me and if the miel coffee is anything like last years, everyone has some fantastic bases for an espresso blend. I think that most of the Huehueh that I have tried has been wet processed, so this Huehueh will be very interesting.

    Just my $0.02,

    Luca

    Re: BeanBay Green - 13th September, 21:00 AEST.

    Im actually looking forward to the miel. Thats a bit ironic, as Costa Rican isnt necessarily my fav origin.

    While this may not be the place for a WP v. DP debate, since CSers are mainly an espresso-based drink population, I can see how the differences in the processing will impact on our choices.

    Very good for those of us in the know to shed some light, and in turn pass that info on to others. That is what makes this community so great.

    Hi nunu - has a poll been done on that recently? I think there are quite a few closet milkers here too! :-X

    Were not drinking instant or drip coffee.

    Last I checked, the vast majority of us do have some sort of machine that pulls shots of, you guessed it, espresso. Not talking exclusively of short blacks or ristretti, should have made myself a bit clearer.

    There are some plungers amongst us, but they dont fall into drip or instant category, and its usually only because they cant be bothered to lug their gear to work.

    Re: Hi! Im new here! Go easy on me!

    I hope this is the correct place to ask, if not, pls excuse.
    How soon after I place an order for a quantity of brown beans is the order despatched?
    The reason I am asking is that I live in Albury and I shall be travelling to Canberra week after next and I would like to collect the order from the Canberra pick up place. I have not yet contacted the Canberra contact but will do so if the coffee order and i will converge in Canberra.
    Thanks

    Re: BeanBay Green - 13th September, 21:00 AEST.


    Hi ya tojo,
    we aim to get the beans into Canberra before 28th September so next week is prob a little too early.

    The BeanBay is tonight, while we wait for payment we pack them ready and most of the time all the payments are in by day 7. The courier then gets the order (day 8) and spends the next few days moving them around the countryside.

    So... if I had to guess I would say 25th is most likely but we add a few days because there are so many variables that we have no control over. (when people pay, when couriers arrive etc).

    Ive been away from here for a while - but the Mountain top sure sounds Tempting.
    FYI - I actually had the chance to try a few shots of the Mountain Top bundja this morning and it was awesome. Sweet nutty and complex.

    Yes Sparky, tis a different crop and farm and processing!

    No where near as "polished" as the previous Huehuetenango this is semi washed and carries a whole lot more chaff in the roaster!

    Another smooth bean bay experience. 2.5kg of the Mountain Top PB.

    Only problem was with shipping the only option that was listed was express post. So went with it and I am sure Andy will sort that out later.

    I had the same experience as Brett, Andy. Have transferred funds minus the cost of the postage as Id prefer delivery to "Dennis" if possible...I had a laugh

    Thanks heaps!

    I got a truck load this month as I missed out on a bit last month and was getting low. Very quick, smooth and as mentioned the only flaw was the shipping with Aust Post was the only option so had to choose this as no other option. I want EPIC delivery Andy when you get the chance to fix.

    Cheers and great selection. The Guatamalan beans went quick. glad I chose those first.

    The freight options to the pick-up points did eventually show up. *They appeared one at a time over a period of a couple of minutes. *I think by 7.05, they were all there and ready to choose from.

    Another excellent Bean Bay Andy - thanks again!!!

    Re: BeanBay Green - 13th September, 21:00 AEST.

    Damn you lot click fast.

    I mistakenly set my alarm for a 9:30 start so when I casually browsed the GreenBay at 9:02 it said there was only 32.5kg of the Huehue left.

    So I quickly clicked on it to get the 2.5kg I planned on and it came up as sold out on the next screen.

    Confused, I went back to the order page and refreshed it and sure enough it was all gone!

    Never mind, a quick read of the descriptions and I settled on the El Salvador.

    Dennis, put it with my last lot please and Ill probably pick up both at once.

    Still will get some of the other CA crop and see what they have to offer....
    Anyone finding themselves with an embarassing abundance of Huehue is free to let me know !!!

    My very first beanbay experience (so fast and easy!), im with Thundergod on this one, I watched the Huehue literally disappear before my eyes. Needless to say I was very happy to pick up the Peaberry I was chasing. ;D

    Silly question time: Why is the Huehue so extremely popular? what separates this bean from the others?

    Re: BeanBay Green - 13th September, 21:00 AEST.

    Yeah thats hardcore, it always amazes me how quick things go..

    I was about to add the hue to my cart, and my wife took the mouse and did some surfing on the other screen, and I was like "HEYY!! Every second COUNTS HERE!!!!", so after a quick scuffle (joking) I managed to rescue the mouse back, add the hue which was at 50kgs, and I swear I must have got the last 2.5kgs!!! YAY!

    Andy, can you please just throw a few of your cards in my sachel anyway, regardless of me not using a pick up point?

    Thanks

    Hi Andy, just a thought....I might have missed this info posted elsewhere, but would like to suggest that it would be great to get the descriptions you provide in beanbay for each coffee to go out with the heads up email, as I find they are really useful comments.

    Andy, didnt have time to say it last night, Beanbay was excellent. You have it down to a fine art now so that it is seamless and no hassles, for me anyway.

    Thanks again.

    If you remember can put some Brown cards in with my order and I will hand some out.

    I second that. Iíd be great to have more info on the beans in the Ďheads upí email to help decide what to get. I was reading the descriptions to help decide, but as the Huehue was disappearing so quickly I just had to bite the bullet and just get minimum quantities of all the centrals. I did an internet search on all the beans beforehand, but as these beans appeared to be processed differently to whatís usual in these regions I didnít know if I could rely on the info I found. Also, I couldnít find much info on the Mountain Top ones, so consequently didnít buy any of those.

    Also, would it be possible to have some rough roasting guidelines for each bean listed on its description page? Yeah I know it depends on what equipment you have, personal preference etc, etc, but some rough guidelines for each bean would be a big help.

    Hi all

    I did research each bean beforehand as much as I could and decided that the Mountain Top beans may not be super great as an espresso so didnt get any. Last night I noticed that they sold really slowly compared to other beans and other beans bays past. Maybe others had similar thoughts?

    I reckon you have to take a plunge. I have never tried Australian Beans, and Andys cupping notes looked good, especially for the Peaberry. So I went for it. There always has to be a bean or beans that doesnt sell as quickly as the others and it doesnt necessarily mean that they are inferior. I will be keen to roast and report back on these Mountain Top ones.

    Cheers

    How true Thundergod.

    Its very rare for anyone to be dissapointed with any CoffeeSnob offerings!

    ...and its not an accident that everyone gets amazing coffee. Dont try and find a "dodgy" offering on CS, what would be the point of us offering it up in the first place?

    Instead try a few different origins, zone-in on what you prefer and then roast it to suit.

    Just because you could or could not google the information about a coffee farm or origin doesnt really act as a very reliable grade.

    Heck, even a Google for "starbucks coffee is really good" gets a hit!

    http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&q=%22starbucks+coffee+is+really+good% 22&btnG=Google+Search&meta=

    So dont live by what you can find in a web search, instead trust us to deliver great coffee at a fair price and trust yourself to "do it justice" in the roaster.

    Enjoy!

    Andy.

    Cheers TG & Andy.

    The web site for the Mountain reckon that the Boomerang is made for plunger. I am going to try it plunger and espresso and see whether it is good for the later also.

    Cheers again and thanks for the great service matey.

    There seems to be an unwritten rule that says if a coffee is mild as an espresso then it is plunger coffee.

    I dont agree but feel free to try it and see if you do.
    ;)

    I have tried a lot of Aussie coffee in the last few months and can tell you hands-down the MTC beans stand well above the pack. Most others I tried are either badly graded or washed to death and could only be used as a blender.

    Remember Oz coffee is an island, low altitude coffee so it will always be mild. The trick here with the MTC is in the processing that makes it a more interesting coffee than it should be.

    Im looking forward to hearing others reports on these when they get a chance to roast them up.

    This is down right unfair!!!! I restrained myself and got a minimum order. I looked at the MT bin 549 and thought.... interesting, but not today...

    But what are they still doing here three days on??? How am I expected to exercise restraint over such a long time scale??? Crazy... I was compelled to add it...
