    BeanBay GREEN - 14:00 Tuesday 16th Sept 2008

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    GREEN BeanBay AFTERNOON

    TUESDAY 16th September
    2pm AEST

    =======================

    We have had quite a few requests for a daytime BeanBay from those that only have access to a computer at work so this month we will kick it off at 14:00 TUESDAY AFTERNOON 16th September.

    On offer will be:

    Ethiopian Limmu Organic
    Nicaragua Ramacafe Fine Estate RFA
    Panama Boquete Bajo Volcancito
    PNG Jiwaka Peaberry
    Sumatra Mandheling Takengon Organic
    DECAF - Mocha Java

    And a small amount of the following for those that missed-out on them last month:

    Brazil Ipanema Reserva Especial
    Democratic Republic of the Congo - Matadi
    Indian Tiger Mountain A
    Peru - Organic Grace Villa Estate


    More details and discussions can be found below:

    Ethiopian Limmu Organic $9.00/kg
    Ethiopian Limmu certified organic at origin this is a 2008 crop that arrived last week (not the end of last years crop) and the good news is that its just a good as we remember. *Washed and well graded makes this one of the easiest Ethiopian coffees to roast and it works well through a wide range of roast depths (CS8-10). *If you enjoy it bright and lively try just after CS8 and if you want sweetness and cocoa push it towards CS10.


    Nicaragua Ramacafe Fine Estate RFA $9.00/kg
    Nicaragua Ramacafe Fine Estate is Rain Forest Alliance (RFA) and UTZ certified. *In the cup at *CS9 I found a sweet soy milk nuttiness in the aftertaste that was both enjoyable and quite unique. *These are very well graded beans and roast even and easily.


    Panama Boquete Bajo Volcancito $10.00/kg
    Panama Boquete Bajo Volcancito is a high grown, strictly hard bean (SHB) from the Bajo Volcancito plantation. Clean, well graded and produces a great balance of sweetness and acidity with a smooth body at a CS9 roast depth. *Fans of Central American beans should love this one.


    DECAF - Mocha Java $13.00/kg
    We roast this decaf at the Snobbery and noticed that the current batch is has a slightly lighter overall colour which makes roasting it easier. *As a rule, the water processed decaf can be trick to roast as you cannot use roast colour as a good indicator, so we still recommend stopping just shy of second crack for best results.


    PNG Jiwaka Peaberry $9.50/kg
    PNG Jiwaka Peaberry. *Ive had numerous discussions previously about finding huge maragogype beans in with peaberry beans and I still dont know why it happens but there are plenty in this origin too. *Roasted to CS9 it produces an enticing aroma off the grinder and retains the sharp PNG acidity that you expect in the cup. *From the Western Highlands of the Wahgi valley this is the first time that we have seen a Jiwaka bean but I do hope it becomes a regular visitor to Oz. *


    Sumatra Mandheling Takengon Organic $9.50/kg
    Sumatra Mandheling Takengon certified organic at origin and one of the ugliest Mandheling samples I have roasted for a long time. *Lots of broken and chipped beans but in the cup just shy of CS10 its big, bold, earthy and chocolaty with a great body.

    Melbourne pickup
    Next weekend is the cupping champs, the following is grand final day, the one after that is 4th Oct and Ill be at William Angliss so you can pickup in the morning from outside there (if you can wait that long for beans) or just use the courier option in BeanBay.

    Queensland Pickup
    Gilkatho are starting some renovations so the pickup point has been moved to the new Veneziano First Pour at West End.

    Good idea with the daytime Beanbay! I can just imagine a Melbourne Cup Style "race that stops the nation" :P

    Thanks for the notes too Andy - really helpful!

    Andy, thanks for the beanbay notice. Unfortunately Im usually either in meetings, on the road or otherwise busy in the daytime so I hope this wont become the normal time.

    I dont mind missing the occasional beanbay for the sake of those who cant get to a computer at night, but overall, Id have thought that those who are busy during the day would far outnumber them by a long shot.

    Thats funny Menace, I wonder what the productivity cost to the country might be.

    Good idea with the daytime Beanbay!
    I expect we will only have the odd BeanBay during the day for those that need it, mostly they will continue to be evening (W.A) and night (East).

    Welcome to CS dbambi!

    To begin with, decide what beans you would like to purchase and in what quantity. Each variety comes in 2.5kg bags. Theyre all good and Andy has provided descriptions from his cuppings of each. Also, keep in mind that Andy does his utmost to provide everyone with an opportunity to make a purchase of premium beans. The quantities that are offered have grown significantly and there is always a limit to what can be sourced and supplied.

    If you are logged in and click on the "Buy Green" icon to the left of the screen at the time beanbay commences, the selections will be there. You just click on what you want and nominate the amount youd like and it will be assigned to your basket and held there for 30minutes, allowing you time to checkout and add to your collection. I suggest you take a look at the "Buy Brown" option in the meantime to get an idea.

    Be warned - its often a feeding frenzy and 200kg can disappear in just a few minutes. Despite this, there are usually a few varieties left for some time afterward. Its certainly not because these beans arent as good, its just impossible to account for peoples preferences.

    If all else fails, you have a one-off opportunity to purchase a mystery starter pack at a ridiculously good price - you should take advantage of that regardless!

    There are a couple of threads that have been made sticky at the top of the Beanbay thread that are worth a read and have further info.... http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?board=NewPolls

    Hope that helps.

    Mods - this question seems to come up every month..is there a sticky for the process?

    If its not displaying on your screen then Im not sure you are going to see the reply.
    This could get really weird!
    8-)

    We have a BIG pile of green beans (the ones in the first post of this thread) that will appear in "BeanBay" at 14:00 tomorrow. *

    http://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au

    Home roasters can log into BeanBay and buy the ones they want, when they are paid for we ship them out. *The process might seem a little daunting at first but it really is easy.

    A longer description can be found:
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1111152844
    ...that is if you can read this message of course

    hope some of the good stuff is left when i get home from work to place an order..
    For every person that is really happy that BeanBay is on during the day there is another that isnt. *Try and think of those that are getting their first crack at a daylight BeanBay for more than 12 months! *Please also understand that we try really hard to keep most of the CSrs happy most of the time but obviously cannot keep all of the CSrs happy all of the time.

    The 2pm east-cost time (12 noon WA, 1:30pm SA) was selected so that it falls at a potential lunch-time for the whole country. *Those that dont have a computer in front of them at work have the chance to get to one over lunch (maybe?!?).

    We do have a lot of beans on offer this month and I hope that there are some for the evening roasters too but we can never really know for sure.

    If you cannot get to a computer tomorrow afternoon we always suggest you find another CSr or a friend that can do it for you. *

    Take her out for ice-cream.

    Dont slow down at speed humps.

    All the best for tomorrow - there are many things more important than beanbay.

    Cherish the day! :)

    Managed to give birth successfully last night!!!! *(not personally but I was there)

    So double bonus as Coffeesnobs is blocked at work and now having another baby ... I might just make the 2pm window.

    Given that this is blocked at work now I cant vote for a daylight start time ... maybe alternative months would work well????

    Michael,
    Dont know if this is of any use, but my work blocks
    http://www.coffeesnobs.com.au
    but DOES NOT block
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au

    They use a product here called Websense for filtering and blocking.
    For some reason, the full URL comes up in the category "Malicious Web Sites". No idea why.

    Brett.

    Depending on how they filter it,
    go through this list of proxys at http://www.freeproxy.ru/en/free_proxy/cgi-proxy.htm until you find one that works.

    May or may not work, and some of them can use cookies etc... so you would be able to log in and purchase beans.

    Baldryk - nobs appears in both versions, so I dont think thats it.

    hmmm... I have no idea why we would be blocked (apart from the obvious non-productivity issues)
    ;)

    It could be the Perl (.pl) that your local sys-admin didnt like.

    Does:
    http://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au
    work ok?

    Yep.
    Beanbay even works with the www in front.

    The (basic) tests I have done with the coffeesnobs.com.au/... pages suggest that
    coffeesnobs.com.au/...
    work fine, but
    www.coffeesnobs.com.au/...
    are blocked.

    The fact that the filtering reason says Malicious Web Sites makes me wonder if it somehow got flagged onto a server somewhere and this filtering product just blindly accepts it. A bit like SpamCop.

    Just a thought on the blocking it wouldnt be the coffee hits counter as I know Explorer (yes I know its junk) blocks it and the geolocation site off this one?

    Anyway bring on the beans :)

    Very strange. I spent ages wandering around Websense(less?) and cannot find a look-up or a test for anyone that isnt their product user so I have emailed the local office to see why/what/how.

    I dont know of us ever being on a Malicious Web Sites list.

    Brett, if you bump into your "local network admin dude" I would be very curious to know why. It might just be local to you and not the actual websense database.

    Its a cookie blocking phishing thing to do with the level of insecurity I have set :) CS doesnt come up as restricted but the other two I mentioned do?

    Re: BeanBay GREEN - 14:00 Tuesday 16th Sept 2008

    Pictures just slow down the refresh rate ;) Seems to have been a few less on than the night time bay last month but a lot more beans so some took 5 minutes to sell out instead of 3 ::)

    Hope those that couldnt make it this afternoon stil have a few to choose from :)

    Dont know how much extra work for Andy (in his no doubt excess spare time) it might be but maybe a day offering and then a second offering that night? Two mawlings fighting for bags of beans has to be more fun than 1 ;D

    Nice work again with the spread of offerings. Time to try a blend or 2 with this months pickups I think.

    Haha, funny (after getting the 5kg I wanted) hitting F5 every couple of seconds and watching the green bars go down. But usually more blood PhilMac?

    From what Ive tasted in the past, the Panama Boquete is a repeatedly reliable stand-out Central American SO - superbly rounded.

    Apologies to Molly, but "do ya-selves a favour" & get some. ;)

    Close to 100kgs left, after I ordered just before ...

    Nice variety Andy.

    Re: BeanBay GREEN - 14:00 Tuesday 16th Sept 2008

    In a post somewhere, I remember a comment about the very large range of beans available on beanbay. Not in any one beanbay, but over the course of time.

    How true! I love Ethiopians, and just this year Ive accumulated some Harar Longberry, Yirgacheffe, Gambella sundried, and have just snaffled some Limmu (didnt need it, but ...). Other sellers Ive used might only stock one type of Ethiopian, in a range that remains fairly static. Long live Beanbay!

    Out of curiosity, does anyone have any stats for the total number of different bean origins offered on beanbays? I suspect the number would be impressive.

    Sadly no. The satchels are already just over the weight (cotton bags and ties add come to 100g odd on top of the beans) and if we put any more in they get sent back (and it will cost you an additional $15 in freight).

    At different points around the country Australia Post weigh the satchels and reject the over weight ones.

    this really sucks. Lots of beans and I have been BANNED from buying more. Trying to justify the stash is hard enough when it is sitting over 20kg and what makes it worse is I would love at least 4 of the beans on beanbay

    I will have to just sit and watch others go wild :(

    tame... civilised... polite?

    Could we really be talking about BeanBay?!?!?
    ;)

    Hope those that couldnt make it this afternoon stil have a few to choose from
    We have half a tonne of beans still on offer an hour after the start so I think most everyone will get a shot at something they like.

    maybe a day offering and then a second offering that night?
    Hmmm... I dont think so. I did ponder holding some stock back till tonight but the gotcha there is I will endup with 50 email requests to add this to that order, to ignore the freight option, to swap this type for that type etc etc.... too much work and too easy to oops!

    Other sellers Ive used might only stock one type of Ethiopian, in a range that remains fairly static.
    I think that shows my own flavour bias more than anything, you are just lucky your taste is similar!
    :)

    what makes it worse is I would love at least 4 of the beans on beanbay
    Only 4 of the beans?
    I think you need to count again because I know they are all good.

    ;)

    I just dont count. Well that and the fact that I hide them at the Snobbery so the missus cannot see em.

    Thanks beanflying for posting the wiki link.

    It lists 56 different bean origins which have been sold here at some time, and not all are included. Hats off to Andy for offering us such great diversity, over time.

    The range of bean origins taking over my clothes cupboard looks narrow by comparison, so I suppose Ill just have to keep buying more.

    Heli blades were to simple and lost to many beans ;)

    Hottop is heading for a full brain transplant to full laptop temperature ramp controller :) Build thread coming soon to a roaster section near here.

    Time to sell my brand new unused Breville Pronto Turbo roaster. $100 + post anyone before it hits ferralbay?
