    Re: GREEN BeanBay - Wednesday 20th Feb.

    I must remember to pick up some this BeanBay, my stash running quite low too!

    I hope the Kenya A will be as good as last years Kenya AA, I really liked that one!

    Also, is there any reason I can no longer get my beans couriered to me? Maybe I missed a change in how everything is done?

    Could you imagine the rush that would cause.... as if that isnt bad enough already ::)

    At least whilst people are reading the details it gives others a chance to get some beans as well.

    Pre armed with all the details the quick ones amongst us would rush in and grab em all.....

    I feel the way Andy does it now is far fairer to all members (even if it upsets a few :))

    Re: GREEN BeanBay - Wednesday 20th Feb.

    Dash, another Wednesday night beanbay! :( How bout we offer half the beans one night and half the beans another night just in case someone (like, er, me) has a standing appointment on the BeanBay night? Would also be some consolation for those who at 8pm happen to be answering the door, finishing a roast, resuscitating the budgie or are otherwise detained and come 8:05 find nair a cotton bag in sight!

    Hi all

    Well actually even with descriptions not posted until the time I notice that some of the coffees reduce in available quantity in a few seconds! I do hope some of the more technically literate folks here are not automating their screens :-)
    I dont think prior descriptions would have much effect.

    And CoffeeSnobs is far too successful! Googling for some of these Indian beans this arvo gave me links to the CoffeeSnobs BeanBay Banter dated 19th Feb 2008 :-)

    Sure! Per the initial post:
    "The beans, my notes and the photos of the actual beans will appear in BeanBay...."

    I feel the way Andy does it now is far fairer to all members (even if it upsets a few)
    Spot-on JavaB. We do try and get the balance right.

    How bout we offer half the beans one night and half the beans another night
    No way! There are a lot of reasons why we do what we do and I cannot see that one working within the required framework.

    Dash, another Wednesday night beanbay!
    Similar answer... we have reasons that Wednesday works best. We used to move it around, business hours, after hours, week days and weekends and I got in trouble for that too!

    The best bet is to get yourself a proxy bidder, someone who can jump-on as you and buy your beans and/or a local CSr that you can share an order with.

    We might have it on a different day sometime but dont hold your breath.

    Not really Nunu, the beans are a lot larger and washed cleaner. The cup profile is similar but I would expect that back to back the two would be quite different.
    Like RH in the start of this post, thanks also to you for the local pickup service. You guys are saving CSrs lots in freight!

    We have lots of beans up this month, Im sure everyone who gets on the site when BeanBay starts will get something that will roast well.

    :)

    Hmmm....I dont need any more green beans at the moment,
    I dont need to spend any more money, at the moment....
    ...I dont need any more green beans at the moment,
    I dont need to spend any more money, at the moment....

    Im already committed to being somewhere else tonight anyway,
    .......at least till about 2130...

    Maybe next BeanBay.... :o


    Wonder what RH is doing about 2100?

    I can see that someone will develop a "Green BeanBay" automated buying software, similar to the last minute bid-sniper softwares for EvilBay that are around.
    Anyway, Im running low on beans and will be away from the computer tonight, so I do plan to enlist a (human) tonight. Looking forward to a new delivery ...

    Re: GREEN BeanBay - Wednesday 20th Feb.

    I cant see that happening as the beans are only listed at the time of Beanbay and without the information to tell the program what to look for it woud be be near impossibe to code. IMHO. Anyway. Its all about the thrill on being invoved in Beanbay and the tales you tell afterwards.

    Ill be here like the rest of the CS community quickly reading, clicking and spending away.

    Wouldnt want to do it any other way, the whole excitement thing is the best rush ever.

    Any way a little taste and preference knowledge should lead you in the right direction, by the way african rules

    This is a big haul tonight. 20mins into Beanbay and all beans are still available with over 500 kgs still on offer. If anyone complains there wasnt enough beans tonight they should grown their own.

    Re: GREEN BeanBay - Wednesday 20th Feb.

    Whoohoo!!,.. gees what a fight... but I was in and outta there in about 6mins I think with my booty of;
    India Mysore Nuggets A,
    Kenya A,
    Indian Monsoon Malabar AA, and
    Nicaragua High Grown Bold

    Since 2.5kg is the minimum quantities and I did not want to miss out again,.. I bought them anyway knowing this is way more than I could consume alone. So,..if there is anyone in Canberra who would like half of my booty sing out and we can split them. It will cost you half of what I paid and half shipping to Cruiserman,..total being $49.40. Would prefer a Northside, Belconnen or Gungahlin CSr where I travel about a lot,.. but if not,. Im sure we could arrange something anyway. *First PM gets it. *

    Hope it is okay to do this Andy,. and Im not breaking any rules,..apologies if I am. *It was the only way I could see how I could get a nice stock of green up. But will try to make this kind of arrangement prior the next Beanbay sales hopefully.

    I Got some Kenyan, Monsoon Malabar and some Kappi Royale for variety. *Also some of Andys Mocha Java to find out what to aim for as my roasts dont seem like what others describe.

    Andy: my bank site is down... will transfer $ asap

    Remy, the greenies (depending on the processing, & how you store them) will last ya fresh 2-3 years ...

    When you roast them ... THAT determines their considerably shorter shelf life.

    Stockpiling is an unfortunate by-product of being an enthused snob, who when examining their assortment realises that they could always do with "that extra SO"! ::)

    Welcome to the bug ;)

    Re: GREEN BeanBay - Wednesday 20th Feb.

    Andy- its like when I go to the supermarket for a loaf of bread and then end up with dozens of other things-
    The bags! I knew I needed them- and then there was the beans and so many lovely ones to choose from - who can choose?
    Just a note- it seemed not possible to order more than 20 bags. I tried clicking it a couple of times :(to no avail. 20 will be fine this month- but maybe there is a trick to it for next time.
    Thanks very much- all paid for... cant wait for the big day... ;D
    Its like a birthday every month ::)

    I logged in at 22:00 and noticed quite a lot left; some of each.

    Im trying to reduce my stash.
    Remy! Correction. After roasting tonight Im down to 78kg.

    Some looked tempting but Ill be strong this month.

    It would appear to me to have been a pretty good Bean Bay this month with so much on offer; no one should complain they couldnt get the bean/s they wanted.

    Well done Andy.

    OMG.. thats some serious coffee obsession [smiley=laugh.gif]..hmmmm..I do have a tonne of space in there come to think of it(and could easily make heaps more space cos all my clothes are crap). Loads of shelf space. Its cool in there yes,..dark most of the time and I could hiiiiide it in there way better than I could in the pantry,...plus if the ensuite floods I can bean bag it quickly to stop the carpet getting wet.... yeah it could work. No, no stop it! Im putting a few bags in the pantry is all. :-/ ;D

    Oh thats terrrrrrrrible,.. youre running out!! :P

    Well my grand sum of beans is;
    Green is 1.5kg. Brown 300g(1 day post roast >:( )
    And not one bean (ooh must check the patio out back) in the house that is drinkable. No grounds.

    Note to self: Just because there is a valve coffee bag standing up in the cupboard, doesnt mean it has beans in it that will last until your next roast is ready! *smack*

    Withdraw the offer, Remy, otherwise youre going to roast a batch, have a couple of cups and realise that its a coffee that you really, really love. Problem will be that youve given half of it away and now youre stuck spinning the remaining beans out until they appear in beanbay again. If you decide that you dont really like a particular bean and cant come up with a blend to use it in, that will be the time to offer the beans to someone else. :)

    Got some Malabar and Kappi Royale - thanks for the robusta, missed the last one so been hanging to get a batch to sit on and it looks great so yeah, cheers!

    Can I just add 5% pre-roast or does it really need a separate roast?

    Thanks again Andy!

    As much as I would really love to keep it all,. darling hubby who has absolutely no appreciation for quality coffee would be far from thrilled when I haul 10kg of green beans into the house and answer his question of how much I spent. You and I know their real worth,..but my hubby...hes not a coffee drinker and coverting him over is going to take some time...if ever. Hes a hard nut to crack and may be too old ;) to change now hee hee. If I were to keep it all,.. I really would have to hide it in my walk in robe to avoid conflict and the start of beverage war in this house. ::).... hmmm wonder if I can store it someone elses house....narr...get a grip.

    Remy,

    You may want to use the tactic of explaining how much youre SAVING in buying so much green. And the more you buy...etc..

    Also, this is the only place you can get it where the quality is so good and you wont have to waste any by tossing out bad batches...

    And it only comes around once a month...what if you miss out next month and you run out? Youll have to start buying expensive brown beans again.

    Umm... you know where Im going.. Not that Ive used these excuses (I mean reasons) before... :-/
