    BeanBay Pickup Thread - July/August.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Below are the dates and times that we expect we can get the next next BeanBay beans bagged, tagged and freighted to the pickup points (assuming prompt payment from everyone).

    MEL
    • Veneziano First Pour - Abbotsford - 10am-12pm - Saturday 2nd August 2008


    QLD
    • Gilkatho - Milton - Business Hours after 1st August 2008


    ACT
    • "Cruiserman" - Calwell - after 1st August 2008


    TAS
    • "StuartGrant" - Launceston - after 1st August 2008
      "ParaM" - Hobart - after 1st August 2008
      "rayzurhed" - Burnie - after 1st August 2008


    SYD
    • "Coffee Parts" - Pagewood - after 1st August 2008
      "Dennis" - Sylvania - after 1st August 2008
      "Wine of the Bean" - Thornleigh - 1st August 2008



    WA

    • Epic - Perth - Friday 2pm-3pm - 1st August 2008


    SA
    • The Coffee Barun - Sefton Park - 1st August 2008


    8-)

    Please understand these dates are a best guess, the courier has the last say!
    (as a rule I think we have always been on time)

    Feel free to banter in the below thread and if dates or times need changing in this post let me know.

    You might want to schedule a CS get together around the pickup, its great fun getting together will a pile of CSrs for a coffee and a chat. You will find that you exchange roasting tips and whacky concepts and everyone comes away with some new exciting ideas to try.

    Not yet.
    I daresay Andy is about to reveal the beanbay offer for July/August.

    Keep an eye out here and in your inbox.

    Re: BeanBay Pickup Thread - July/August.

    How fixed are these times?

    I cant get into the city during business hours on Friday but I could get there Saturday Morning. Is the Perth location open then? Are we allowed to do this (does the pickup point mind?) or is it strictly during the alloted time/date?

    Ive had my orders posted in past but would like to place a larger order this time.

    Thanks
    Paul

    Re: BeanBay Pickup Thread - July/August.

    Hi all,

    As the prospective "hoarder" of beans for the Launceston area, I just thought Id give everyone a gday, and give a small request?

    If you want beans delivered to me (Launceston, north/NE Tas) for pick up, let me know before Bean Bay if possible.

    The reason is that there arent a lot of us here (4 so far, to my knowledge), and we probably wont have the volume of orders to make the courier costs worth it for Andy every month (happy to be corrected) - so I thought itd be a better idea if we coordinated to (ideally) have a larger order every 2nd Bean Bay or so. Sound ok?

    Cheers,
    Stuart.

    Cheers.

    I could easily make it there before 7:30AM on the day after. Is that ok with rules and/or owner of Epica? Or should I just stick with postage?

    Comphelp - The Epic crew are pretty cool and will keep your beans there for a few days without a problem. Just drop-in during their business hours to get them.

    Anthony - Sadly you are still the only one that ever asks for it. Most people said that parking was a pain which is why we moved to the 3 other sydney pickups. If you can generate enough interest and volume (maybe in a new thread?!?) then we can bring it back (depending on Di Bartoli of course).

    Re: BeanBay Pickup Thread - July/August.

    OK can anyone tell me how I checked back two minutes into BeanBay and there was *no* Yirg??! With the indications of larger volumes this month I wasnt exactly thinking it would be another seagull session... Is it still coming or did the enormous stash to survive the feeding frenzy get attacked by sharks and pteradactyls? At least I got my Mexico... just!

    I thought the Yirg would last longer considering how much was there when I clicked it, but by the time I returned to the main screen it was gone already. Its amazing how fast it goes.

    Re: BeanBay Pickup Thread - July/August.

    I bought 2.5kg each of the Yirgi, the Mexico and the Robusta but am a small consumer, so would be happy to offload 1kg of each (ie 3kg in total) at list price if someone wanted to come at pick it up from Melbourne CBD (top end of Collins St).

    Thats assuming it is within forum rules to re-sell......

    Jeeze guys, I know the saying you snooze, you lose. But there wasnt even a look in!!!
    Surely theres a law regarding scalping of coffee beans to protect us un-organised folk?? ;)

    Hornet,

    The beans are delivered to Veneziano on Saturday in person by Andy.
    So, no is the short answer.

    Veneziano First Pour - Abbotsford - 10am-12pm - Saturday 2nd August 2008
    Yep, I would guess you will have far more chance getting them on Saturday the 2nd of August after 10am.

    Have the Perth beans arrived?

    Also, as this is my first pickup order, how does it work? Do I just go into the store with a copy of my invoice?

    Thanks
