    Re: WA- Pickup 7th Dec at Epic.

    Hi

    I havent purchased any beans from beanbay yet but I would like to know if 500g beans can be puchased? Why do you ask - well we have a coffee machine at work, so by the time I get home I can only take one more coffee for the day (or shake all night)! So I dont get through too much at home.

    Thanks

    Hi Joe.

    are you talking about roasted or green?

    If you are talking about roasted then yes, some of them are in 500g options.

    If its the green, roast your own beans then the tea is in 1kg lots, the coffee beans are all in 2.5kg lots.

    Sounds like a lot of beans but by the time you have tried a few different roasts it goes pretty quickly and they keep as green for years.

    The "starter pack" might be more you size to start off, 4 x 600gm lots of green beans so you can give home roasting a go.

    Re: WA- Pickup 7th Dec at Epic.

    Hi.

    Im a newbie here. Ive been playing with roasting green beans in a popcorn maker over the last month or so. Ive got a Rancilio Silvia and Rocky. Im now looking at making my firs purchase from BeanBay.

    Am I to understand that I can get the beans shipped as part of a bulk order and pick them up here in WA? If so, what are the costs? Is postage also an (more expensive) option? Where is this Epic place?

    Thanks in advance
    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    As for freight:
    Getting beans sent to the bulk pickup point in Perth will cost $1.50/kg
    Express post to your door is $10 for 3kg, or $15 for 5kg which is $3/kg or more.

    The checkout of BeanBay will show all your available shipping options and the costs depending on the weight of your purchases.

    Easy!

    Hi newbies, welcome to the world of home roasting. Order your green beans on beanbay and wait for pickup date at Epic in West Perth (usually on a Friday afternoon) or at T5 in Joondalup on the Saturday. Its a good way to meet fellow CSers from Perth as you will usually run into others picking up beans.
    cheers

    PS: Once family and friends taste the great coffee you will start to produce you will soon go through the kilos, and kilos of green beans.

    Cheers. Ive already seen that with my current batch which I sourced elsewhere to test it out. I can already see that my popcorn maker is going to need an upgrade before I melt it! ;)

    If you are thinking of a T5 pickup in Joondalup you will have to PM terrym to check if it is OK as he will need to take your beans from EPIC and take to T5 Espresso as there is only one delivery point here in Perth and that is EPIC.

    If you drink enough coffee, you might be able to knock that down to only 3 or 4 sleeps. ;D

    I checked the Courier website and it says the beans have been delivered, are we going to have an earlier pickup?

    And alas; I got home and realised that at the bottom of the box was one stray 2.5kg bag of Ethiopian that did not have my name on it ;( Had to scoot back to Epic in case the unhappy soul arrived to collect before they shut up shop! Over excitement me thinks!

    Im sure they will find their way to rightful owner. I enjoyed the get-together of Perth CSers yesterday and comparing notes on coffee and roasting and will look forward to next pickup day in the New Year.

    Yes, it is great to meet up and put faces to names and share notes about the great bean we call coffee
