    As usual, great offerings Andy!

    Pick up for Sylvania can also include the roastery at Taren Point 8.30 to 1.30 Monday to Friday, and of course at the big opening on Sat 10th May from 10am to 2pm.

    Sue (not so subtly) reminded me she is nearly out of tea, so looking forward to the prospect of trying the Yunnan Dayeh Black!

    Gavin,

    Not before as the beans are delivered by Andy himself on the day.

    After is a possibility within reason. Best to check with Veneziano.

    Your other option is to have them delivered. The freight is not super costly.

    You choose your delivery preference at checkout when you get your greens, and it will tell you how much (around $10 for freight I think. Pickup is free thanks to the efforts of Andy).

    Brett.

    Gday bigmomma, & welcome to the world of coffee snobbery ...

    The way the monthly GreenBay works, in a nutshell, is thus:

    1) Every month, a choice selection of green single origins is listed to tempt you (posted here on the forum, & sent to your nominated email);

    2) Andy will notify of the date & time that you should be on-line to secure your desired beans - payment & shipping preferences follow once you choose;

    3) Andy, the evil tempter [smiley=evil.gif], has a knack for sourcing absolute premium beans from current crop offerings from the multitude of worldly origins on offer ... as such, youll see fellow coffee [s]addicts[/s] affecianados come in quick once the beans are listed to secure their desired beans;

    4) So, with the last factor in mind, research the beans on offer to find what will suit what you want, get on-line punctually, get-em in your cart, pay the bloke with the beard as an avatar, then heave a sigh of relief that the adrenalin rush is over & you got what you want;

    5) Yes, pick up Melbourne every month I believe is Veneziano - site sponsor ...
    <<<<<<<<<<<<&l t;<<<<<<<<<<<< <<<<<<<<<<

    6) Do you have the gear to home roast? :-? Peruse the roasting section of this forum, if not, for some ideas ...

    And again, welcome to the kick of home roasting great beans.

    Tony

    You assume the beans are/will be there then... the date that we quote for all the pickup points (except Melbourne that I drive to) is a "best guess" and at the whim of couriers all over the country so I would wait until you hear that the beans are at a pickup point before making plans to pick them up.

    They should be close.

    Hi Guys

    Sorry for not posting earlier but your beans are here and are eager to be brought home and created into beautiful, delectable succulent fine specimens.

    Come on in and pick up before the long weekend.

    Please note there are still quite a few of you who have not picked up from last bean bay.

    Thanks guys

    Mel

    Re: BeanBay Pickup Events - April/May

    Just a quick message to say the beans have arrived at Coffee Parts.
    As usual, pick up at any time during business hours, or call me if you need to come in outside these hours.
    Also, there is no rush, and the beans will be stored here as long as necessary.

    Regards,
    Pedro Lara
