    BeanBay GREEN sale - Saturday 17th Jan 2009

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    BeanBay-GREEN
    SATURDAY 17th January

    16:00 ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    15:30 SA
    15:00 QLD
    14:30 NT
    14:00 WA


    In BeanBay at the above times we will have:


    Brazil Alterosa RFA $8.00/kg*
    Brazil Alterosa RFA - If you are looking for a well rounded coffee with good balance then this is it. *Because of its balance and good body it will also make a great base to an espresso blend. *I liked this at a CS9 roast but it should work ok a little either side of that too.

    Ethiopian Gambella Naturals $8.50/kg*
    Ethiopian Gambella Naturals. *Its back, the ugly little bean that packs a punch. *Sun dried, dry process which produces rich syrupy espresso shots full of earthy spice. *Great as a bold single origin or add it to a base bean to tame it a little.

    Honduras La Central SHG $8.50/kg*
    Honduras La Central SHG. *Strictly High Grown this Honduran comes from the La Central coffee coop and is the first Honduran coffee we have seen for a while. *At a roast depth of CS8-9 it is bright and lively with a light body and provides a great contrast to beans like the gambella that we have this month. Washed, well graded and dense makes this an easy one to roast.

    Ethiopian Harrar Longberry $10.50/kg*
    This Ethiopian Harrar Longberry was certified organic at origin and is one of the cleanest dry processed Harrars we have ever offered. *In the cup it produces a mid bodied espresso shot with wild and fruity flavours that make it a standout.

    Sumatra Blue Lintong $9.00/kg*
    Sumatra Blue Lintong - Wet hulled, well processed and nearly translucent in appearance as a green bean. *When roasted, think BIG. *Huge body with bold over the top flavours. *If you like delicate mild coffees then this one is certainly not for you. Great as a single origin or use it to add "cricket bat" punch to one of your blends.


    We also have:

    Cup Of Excellence sample pack
    Snobby Chai - Chai Spice
    5 different specialty teas.
    2 different pure cocoas.


    All CoffeeSnobs green beans are packed into 2.5kg lots in cotton bags. These bags are perfect for storing your beans in a cool dark place for years.


    *includes $0.50/kg FairCrack donation.

    Pickup Points

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - "Hoyks" Newcastle
    SYD - "Dennis" - Sylvania
    SYD - "Coffee Parts" Pagewood
    SYD - "Nunu" - Carlingford
    CBR - "Cruiserman" Calwell
    MEL - Veneziano - Abbotsford
    TAS - "ParaM" Hobart
    TAS - "rayzurhed" Burnie
    SA - The Coffee Barun - Sefton Park
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" Wembley

    Of course, all the beans can also be shipped using Australia Post satchels too.

    This year we do ask that anything bought in BeanBay is paid for that day so it wont hold-up other CSrs orders. *Any pickup point order that isnt paid for when we freight the interstate beans will not ship and you will incur higher transport costs.

    (beans should be at all the pickup points on the 30th or 31st of Jan)


    Note: We have a new pickup point in WA this month. *Simon (Caffeinefreak) in Wembley has kindly offered to host it on a Saturday morning so the CSrs who cannot get away from work during the week have a chance to get there too.

    No, they are all local time so 1600 AEDST = 1530 (SA) = 1500 (QLD) = etc

    Bean Bay is open to everyone at the same instant.

    Given that all other east coast states are 16:00 AEDST, itd be safe to assume 15:00 is local Qld time (otherwise youd be getting a head-start at 14:00).

    Re: BeanBay GREEN sale - Saturday 17th Jan 2009

    Just a quick question. As this will be my first beanbay - green buy I would like to know is it as simple as going into the bean bay at the specific time, ordering the amount and selecting delivery method.
    Could it be that simple I ask. I wont be home at the times aloted so this will be on a mobile phone.
    I assume that once the qtys have been sold that there wont be anymore till next beanbay and one last question what are the amounts that normaly go up for sale ie. how many kilos of each been.

    The short answer to your question is yes. My first experience was that simple - but you also have to have the timing right.

    The assumption is not correct as Bean Bay is always open and Andy also makes beans available even when the Bean Bay monthly isnt on. He will release some beans now and then - even the keenly sort ones and you just need to keep your eye out. The price is a little higher than the montly offering but still cheaper than other sources but do check other sponsors as they sell green beans that you might be after that arent in Bean Bay

    Hi all Nuveau Castleans

    I thought this time, Id try and do the pickup at a Cafe so we can all sit down and have a chat (rather than huddling out in the rain outside Red Rooster!)

    The only one that comes to mind (and I havent approached the owner yet, so I have to ascertain whether it would be okay for us to congregate) is a lovely little cafe in Lorn called Real Coffee" - just over the bridge from Maitland. Realising this may be quite a distance for some people, if anyone has any other suggestions, Im very open to them.

    Please PM me if you have somewhere else that youd like to suggest - Im happy to travel anywhere as Ill do it on Saturday 29th.

    Cheers

    There are plenty of beans but also plenty of avid buyers. Popular lots can be gone in minutes even when there is over 120kg of a particular variety on offer!

    The key is to be very punctual.

    As Flynn and Greg said, BeanBay GREEN starts at the same time everywhere, I spend the time doing the daylight saving conversions to make it easy for everyone... well that was the theory anyway.

    Test it first. Go to http://beanaby.coffeesnobs.com.au and see if you can select something and get to the checkout. As long as you dont press the [Confirm Order] button you can back-out and remove the item from your basket.
    I have no idea if it works on a phone, it should but I dont know.


    In fact, it might be worth everyone testing they can get into BeanBay ok to make sure that all the software changes this week dont give you (and then me) grief at 16:01 tomorrow.

    For sure wired.

    The beans that we could source a lot of are normally still available for a day or so but always there is a bean that goes in a couple of minutes. We cannot pick which one it is but we do go pretty close with the quantities.

    Yes and we will do that more this year. Often we get a single bag of something special from one of the brokers and will put that up after BeanBay. Last month we bought a pile of the previous months beans to "fill the gap" between the sales too.

    I hope to always have one or two varieties in BeanBay for those that run-out of beans but to keep prices this low and to ship to the pickup points cheaply we need to release BeanBay beans in bulk once a month so we can have just one week of insanity.
    8-)

    Saturday afternoon is a weird time for BeanBay too, we try and have it mid month on a Tuesday or Wednesday night but we have had to wait for some of the small brokers to come back from their summer-snooze and the date slid. If we held off to next week then we will have trouble getting the beans packed and freighted into the pickup points at the end of the month so Saturday it is!

    Dont forget you can always buy a starter pack (any time) which contains 4 x 500g of different beans. I understand that these often contain pleasant surprises. *[smiley=thumbup.gif]

    Hi Guys,

    I live in Oatley... if I purchase a few kgs of green beans and select Sylvania as the pickup point...

    SYD - "Dennis" - Sylvania

    ...what happens next?

    Will Dennis advise the pickup location? *Will it be a weekend? His place? Outside McDonalds :)

    Cheers,
    David

    All the pickup points will be organised in this thread and in your case, Dennis will post what suits best... I know he is busy with multiple addresses at the moment but he will let you know prior to the date.

    Re: BeanBay GREEN sale - Saturday 17th Jan 2009

    Good selection this month Andy

    I think a little of everything is in order for me this month as
    the new roaster and its testing has roasted its way through the stash to reach a medium level of stock

    Andy is there a way to introduce in your bean profile description an optimum time for 1st crack and 2nd crack to compliment the CS colour value?
    I ask this as you are more knowledgeable than myself and it would be good to know a general guide to follow


    Brazil Alterosa RFA $8.00/kg*
    Brazil Alterosa RFA - If you are looking for a well rounded coffee with good balance then this is it. Because of its balance and good body it will also make a great base to an espresso blend. I liked this at a CS9 roast but it should work ok a little either side of that too.
    As an example
    Aim for 1st Crack @ ??? min 2nd Crack ??? min to CS9

    As a general guide it will enable us to aim in the zone for any given bean type. Given that most beans of a particular continent of origin will probably share the same roast profile

    Just a thought mate do you think it has merit?

    Just another question. As a first time roaster would it be better to sample a 1 of each of this month beanbay offer to understand how different beans roast and taste or just buy say 1 or 2 different kinds or beans until I have a better understanding of roasting

    Cheers

    Take a ball of string and a tape measure then measure the length without unwinding it. *:-?

    Roasting times are highly subjective and hugely dependent on the roasting equipment and environment. There is no right answer in general and probably no right answer for a specific bean even amongst professional roasters.

    There are some general characteristics about a good roast which should be kept in mind including how long through the roasting cycle first crack occurs, the time between first and second crack, and how far into second crack a roast should go, but it all depends on the bean.

    In terms of specifics, a roast duration of around 18 minutes is preferred which should provide some clues on what to adjust based on your roasting result.

    Re: BeanBay GREEN sale - Saturday 17th Jan 2009

    Hi All,

    This will be my first Green bay, so please forgive me if Im a bit *green ;D unfortunately I too will be in transit at 4pm on Saturday.

    I am enjoying my starter pack which had Ethiopian Yirgachaffe & Harrar Longberry, PNG Mygapore, & Peru Grace Villa Estate. I am using a modded Cascade popper and the variations in the roasting times with the different beans is amazing. I havent tried a roast with the Harrar yet though, I read something about a long slow roast being best for that, and my popper isnt slow.

    Anyway my question is what would be the most appropriate "popper" learner bean be for this month? I think I want to have enough of one bean (2.5kg should last me a month) to get really familiar with the results.
    Most of my coffees are make with milk, but I am tasting the shots and getting used to the flavour hit.

    The Honduras - "makes this an easy one to roast" caught my eye, would this be best, or is there a more suitable bean for popper roasting?

    Thanks in advance

    Caryn

    Hi Caryn,

    I think that since the Honduran is a SHG bean and "quite dense" it would also be better as a slower roast. *Try the Sumatran for an BIG flavoured coffee or the brazil for something more delicate. *
    Others might have more experience with the popper. *I only lasted a month before I "upgraded" to the corretto. *Have fun.

    Hi All NCCSs again

    Ive checked with James, the owner of Real Coffee, and hes happy with us meeting at his Cafe so, unless there are any objections or alternate suggestions, Ill hold it at his cafe. Ive tried some of his roasted beans and theyre great, so I think we wont be disappointed with the coffee!

    Cheers

    Andy,

    I didnt see a date for the pickup for Melbourne anywhere. I am guessing it will be Australia Day long weekend?

    If thats the case I will have to get mine delivered at this stage. *:(

    Re: BeanBay GREEN sale - Saturday 17th Jan 2009

    To answer the question by a few above as to which bean to buy...
    just pick one and learn how it roasts with your equipment.

    Buy a second one if you want but dont touch it until youve finished (or almost finished) the first one.

    Consistency and practice is the key.

    Just like making a coffee, only change one thing at a time.
    Stick to one bean for a few roasts to learn how it behaves.
    If your roaster has some control, maybe change something like SC time. For example, roast the bean to 30 seconds into SC and see how it tastes after 4 days then 7 days etc.
    Next time try stopping as soon as you hear SC.
    Try tasting it again at the same points.
    etc. etc.

    It took me a long time and many roasts to recognise when SC was about to happen so I could stop the roasts before SC not at SC.

    All of Andys beans that Ive tried have been good.
    Some have not been as easy to roast to my taste as others, but a few quick questions here soon sorted that out.

    So buy what you will, you cant go too far wrong.

    Re: BeanBay GREEN sale - Saturday 17th Jan 2009

    Mmmm so many to buy.

    For those unsure about ease of roasting for new roasters even if you think you like the sound of as bean and it is a bit tougher to roast dont not buy one, Grenn Beans keep for a couple of years :) So by then if you still cant make a decent roast time for Brown Bay ;)

    Current Stash 30kg and growing ;D

    Hey TG has yours got below 100kg yet ::)

    Hey TG has yours got below 100kg yet *
    92.775kg
    To put it into perspective though, 58kg is PNG Kimel.
    That leaves less than 35kg, which Im reducing faster now by trying something different each week.

    I roasted some Mandheling before Christmas.
    Im finishing off last weeks roast of Sulawesi Toraja.
    I have some Costa Rican Santa Elena resting at the moment to try soon.

    Any suggestions for what I should roast next?
    I was thinking some Kenyan Masai Estate.

    Id love to try the Sumatra Blue Lintong from tomorows BeanBay but I need to use up a bit more of my older stock.

    Nice to see you have cut down ;D The Sulawasi I had from Brown Bay a while ago was great. Currently doing Monsoon Malabar for Espresso and Wahgi or Peaberry for Syphons or Tiger A or .... ::)

    This roasting thing is fun :)

    You dont need to use up old stock before you get new it will keep well for some time.

    How long do you rest your new roast for ?

    Best rest times vary but 5 days is a good start. Flavours seem more developed. Current MM was left a bit longer and seemed a little better than the 5 day rest and has maybe improved a little more after being opened for 2 days more.

    HINTS FOR NEW ROASTERS--based on my short home-roasting experience.

    Buy the coffee that matches your preferred tastes.

    Try something different.

    If you havent developed a preferred taste yet, try a couple of very different-sounding coffees... and...

    MOST IMPORTANT--

    DONT BUY ANYTHING TILL IVE GOT MINE!

    Greg :P

    Hi Hoyks, umm is that Saturday 24th January perhaps?

    Hoping to catch some beans if I get back to shore from our sailing boat in time for the opening seconds of BeanBay. No idea how do do it from my phone... Im envious of those who do. Just imagine, middle of Lake Macquarie, getting splashed with waves, ordering too many kilos by accident... total bliss. 8-)

    I just edited the top posts...

    (beans should be at all the pickup points on the 30th or 31st of Jan)

    I think the Newcastle pickup will be on the 31st.
    ...most other places around the country too.

    CoffeeParts will most likely be the day before or after Monday 2nd.


    Note: While we will try REALLY hard to ensure the beans get everywhere on time, couriers have a schedule all of their own and sometimes "stuff happens".

    Sorry, yes - Saturday the 31st for Newcastle. For some reason, I had the 29th in my brain (probably from the November pickup!)

    No beans for me this month, i have plenty of decaf and until i am down to my goal weight i get no caffeine (diet thing).
    Plus i will be on a fishing charter for the afternoon, its my firs so hopefully it will be a successful one.

    Andy,

    Thats ok, I wanted to come in and get them, we are looking at flying off to Broken Hill next weekend.

    If Paula needs a hand for any reason, tell her I am happy to help out if she needs. I am only a 1/2 hour away. :)

    -Linda
