    BeanBay Monthly Sale - Wednesday 10th June 2009

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    BeanBay Monthly Sale

    WEDNESDAY 10th June 2009
    20:00 QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    19:30 SA, NT
    18:00 WA

    In BeanBay starting at the above local times we will have the following green beans:

    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe
    Stunning ground aroma and good acidity makes this a standout. *These small, narrow, long beans are unique in the coffee world and are only found in Yirgacheffe. *You get a more floral grind aroma off the lighter roasts but this bean works through a range of roast depths with a light body, bright acidity and easy to control through the roast. $9.50/kg*

    Kenya Gitwe A
    Grown in Gitwe, milled in Thika, brokered through Nairobi and then makes its way to here. *Its certainly a long journey from tree to cup. *This Kenyan is very clean and well graded, high *acidity makes it work really well through milk and the darker roasts are full of cocoa. *It roasts really easily but due to the density give it plenty of heat early in the roast. Expensive at $11/kg but still great value compared to the $13/kg and $14/kg Kenyans that we are seeing land here at the moment. *$11/kg*

    Brazil Original Bourbon
    This has been processed using the original pulp natural methods and then sorted and graded perfectly. *This bourbon varietal produces a lot of chaff during roasting and while it works through a range of roast depths, the darker roasts around CS10 will produce great dark cocoa, some sweetness and some stone fruit flavours with a heavy syrup texture that makes a great single origin espresso or the base for your own blend. $10/kg*

    Peru Ceja de Selva Estate *
    Organic certified at origin by Naturland this high grown coffee comes from an estate at the base of the Andes and is the best Peruvian organic I have ever tried. *The bean grading has some variation and like all true organic coffee there are some brokens and minor insect damage beans which add to the authenticity. *In the cup this washed (but not polished) coffee produces *great body with a long mid-palate profile. *Great as a single origin espresso or as a base to a more exotic blend. $10.50/kg*

    Jamaican Blue Mountain Mavis Bank Estate
    100% Blue Mountain from the Mavis Bank Coffee Factory (MBCF) which has the best reputation of all the Jamacain growers. *This coffee is wildly expensive so it is packed it in 1 kilogram lots. $90/kg*

    Raw Cocao Beans - Balinese Wild Cocao
    Ready to roast and process into your own home made chocolate! *Natural raw cocao has some musty aromas when raw and depending on the fermentation level will also have some wine type smells. *This cocao smells like a cross between a really fruity shiraz and ribena (weird but true!). *It is not plantation grown, instead it is picked from wild, natural growing Trinitario variety cocao trees in Bali and is very unique in the chocolate world. *$26/kg*


    Raw Cocao Beans - Mexico Soconusco
    From the original birthplace of chocolate, "Xoconusco" is on the border of Mexico and Guatemala and still produces the "Yemen of Cocao". *This one is super musty and will have some naturally appearing outer surface mould that will disappear during processing. *Famous, rare and traditional, this is a great cocao to home roast. *Forest picked, premium Criollo variety, organic at origin, naturally less bitter in flavour this low fermentation cocao will produce something pretty close to the worlds first chocolate. $30/kg*

    PNG Broken Pekoe grade 1
    Ceylon English Breakfast Tea
    Darjeeling Kanchenjunga
    Earl Grey blended tea

    Plus some really cool Australian made keyrings and lapel pins.

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

    * pricing includes $0.50/kg FairCrack donation.

    Pickup Points

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - Real Coffee Newcastle
    NSW - "cksyd" - Kellyville
    NSW - Cuppacoffee - Sylvania
    NSW - Coffee Parts Pagewood
    ACT - "Cruiserman" Calwell
    VIC - Veneziano - Abbotsford (20/6/09 10:30-11:30)

    TAS - "rayzurhed" Burnie
    TAS - "ParaM" Hobart
    SA - The Coffee Barun - Sefton Park
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" Wembley

    As always, orders can be shipped using Australia Post express satchels which is always the quickest method of getting your order.

    Roasted beans and other BeanBay items can be shipped to the pickup points too. *Roasted orders will be roasted as close to the shipping day as we can manage to ensure you still get fresh roasted beans.

    We do ask that anything bought in BeanBay is paid for the same 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 either incur higher transport costs or the order will be cancelled without notice.

    We hope to get all the beans to the pickup points by the 27th of June.

    This delivery date is a best guess as we are often at the whim of couriers around the country. *Generally when the beans arrive at the pickup point someone will post in this thread to let you know the time/date that you should meet for the pickup.

    For some tips on roasting and processing raw cacao beans check-out Chocolate Alchemy -- a great resource.

    http://www.chocolatealchemy.com/roasting.php

    There are a few CSrs that have done this before and have had good results. The following thread was started a couple of years ago, last updated about 12 months ago and is prob a good place to talk about this years batch of cacao beans too.

    Wow, have I been waiting for this one!

    Sooo, who can tell me about the Blue Mountain? Ive always wanted to try some but it is a lot for a miserly student. So, go on, convince me to spend up ;D

    Been waiting for the cacao beans, so thats taking a chunk out of the wallet already. I now have the equipment to process it, so no chocolate flavoured sand for me! :P

    Mate, I think that the general concensus here on CS is that the JBM is worth trying mainly to say that you have tried it, (and many have appreciated the opportunity to try it), no-one has said it was worth the dollars it costs IIRC. *Compared to the Yemen that has been offered at a better although still premium price, I thought many really liked that.
    IF you have money to spend OK go ahead on the basis that you can say you have tried it, just be aware that the law of diminishing returns for the extra cost applies here just as much as in any other area. *
    Think you might get better bang for your buck buying the cocao beans and making some chocolate that is unique.

    Being unemployed (still) would normally preclude me atm from BeanBay but the chocolate is very tempting.

    Andy will the chocolate be in 1kg lots?

    Yeah, due to its price, Id love to be able to get just 1kg of Cocao? Also, is this Cocao a once off? Or do you plan on selling it in coming months.

    As excited as I am about the cocoa, it all looks a bit too messy & fraught with disaster. Plus I would feel obliged to spend more $$ on equipment to process the cocoa. I think Ill wait and see what stories get posted after this months BeanBay, and have a chuckle at someone elses expense before delving into this.

    Good luck to all those who are game to try processing the cocoa into chocolate.

    I thought the Yemen was the merlot of coffee and currently have that, the Columbian, Peruvian and Nicuraguan. All good but very different. I was surprised by the bitterness of the Nicuraguan. Almost a robusta taste.

    Judging from Andys post I dont need to spend the money on the JBM although a funny sidelight to this is that while travelling in China last month there was Blue Mountain coffee everywhere but you could also get a Rolex for $5

    Yes, I thought it would be the diminishing returns again. Maybe being able to eat for the next month should be more important than saying Ive tried JBM??? And with Yemen coming again in a few months, maybe I should just save for more of this.

    Bullitt is spot-on.
    JBM is a coffee that amazes some people that are chasing the perfect clean cup. Its a "bargain" at $90/kg, normal price is $100-$120 and its common to see it at $10 a cup!( $1200 a kilo!!!)

    Most people buy this one just to say you have tried it. On a tight budget I would suggest making friends with another CSr to try a cup and sticking to other beans or cocao for roasting.

    No, sorry only in 2.5kg lots.

    There are lots of reasons for this including the volume of beans we had to buy to be able to land and offer the highest quality cacao at nearly $20/kg cheaper than it should be.

    The best suggestion I can make is to share a bag with another local CSr (prefer via PM not here). Most of you know someone within walking distance.

    I had to buy a very large amount to land it here. There should be plenty next month but maybe it will sell-out... all I can do is tell you that it will be available in BeanBay tongiht. It takes months of organising and a whole lot of customs and AQIS grief to land cocao in Australia (not to mention $8k upfront!). Enjoy it while its here, it might be the only lot that we land!

    Just so you guys dont waste your efforts, I tried making a chocolate espresso by grinding the beans and putting in the portafilter. choked the machine and only 3 drops of liquid made it through. it was the foulest tasting liquid ever, resembling a rancid vinegar. so now you know to stick with conching ;)

    Hi Bob and welcome to CS!

    FWIW, The only coffees Ive ever had that were bitter were due to the roast, the espresso machine, or the barista, and had nothing to do with the source or variety. Maybe Ive just been lucky. ;)

Im not after the big $$ beans, Ill get the starter pack for sure and some brown too, was thinking I might get into the roasting process as Ive got a popper lying around here and reading the thread "for beginners" sounds exciting and Im eager to give it a crack or 2 (pun included) ;)

    Sometimes really quick (a few minutes) some beans dont always sell out. If there is something you really want, make sure you add it to you cart quickly :-)

    Good luck! Once youve roasted your own successfully, youll never go back to buying brown beans!

    I can put my hand up for this one. One of THE nicest beans to roast AND taste. I am a HUGE Yemen fan, and this comes in a really close first place contender. I was fortunate enough to have a kg of this given to me by a good friend, and I have been hanging out for it ever since.

    My husband has even said when it comes back on beanbay to get it. Even at the price tag.

    Ahhh the fun of coffee eh!

    The Yemen and the JBM would be at each end of the flavour spectrum but that doesnt stop people from liking both the same as people can enjoy a sweet white wine and a heavy dry red.

    Just another reason that "its never just coffee"

    ;-)

    Being very modest there Den.... ;)

    I can back up what Den says though; only time Ive tasted something off in the cup, it has always been down to me and nothing to do with the great beans Andy always seems to get hold of. Fantastic collection for us all this time Andy, blown away by the variety.... 8-)

    Can someone give me a really good reason to split a kg of JBM two to three ways? Will you offer JBM as roasted Andy? Im not sure I like my odds on getting it about right first time!

    Yet more tempting offers tonight from our sourcer (or is it sorcerer to get everything through customs this month?).

    p.s. my Nicaraguan roasted up beautifully last night - snuck in a shot this morning ;) just had to test it :D

    Andy,
    How much would it be for 250 grams of Jamaican Blue?
    poddy66
    Easy poddy66, 250g will be $90. What you choose to do with the other 750g is up to you ;)

    Andy packs in 2.5kg bags for ease of handling and in this case, does 2.5x the work so that CSers can sample this expensive stuff. Keep in mind that youd often pay up to $200/kg for stale roasted lower quality JBM.

    Be thankful that we have access to great beans at more than fair prices....

    Happy roasting.

    90/kg is fair IMHO

    A shot of JBM will cost you ~7+ dollars at a "specialty" cafe.

    $90 and you get another 750g free
    ;D

    I really have to say, the prices we sell beans for take into account the fact that we can buy in bulk, pack in standard sizes, use standard packaging, and sell in bulk.

    If we sold things in small packages and odd sizes then we would need many staff to handle the volume of orders. 10 staff at "x" $ per hour plus super plus insurance plus sickies to pick, pack, sort and ship... we would need to stock 20 different packaging sizes and offer 10 different postage methods.

    We would then be retail and would charge at least double what we do now, more likely triple to cover the additional costs.

    I think things work perfect now.

    We can order in bulk, pre-pack everything prior to the Bean Bay sale (takes nearly 2 weeks of packing!!!) and sell / ship once a month (it takes nearly a week to pack and ship all the items to the pickup points and postage).

    Please keep all the above in mind when requesting smaller amounts. There is every chance that if we ever did that you would just pay the same for less!

    Will you offer JBM as roasted Andy
    Not planning to.

    10kg roaster.

    beans @ $90/kg - 20% water loss in roasting

    $900 of beans will produce 8kg of coffee @ $113/kg + packaging
    ...and thats if I roast it for free and dont oops!

    How many kilos did you want to order Intellidepth?

    This math is why shops sell it for $7-$10 per cup!
    (even so I do wonder at what age they continue to sell it?)

    Buying it green and roasting your own you will pay about $1 a cup

    the world of coffee roasting. I will never drink instant again.

    going well thanks madpierre! brewed some Beloya side by side and did notice a difference. Im keeping them for CoE lots and the like.

    should I get used to things moving that quickly, like the Yirg? Regardless, this is a great system, thanks Andy, thanks too for the great choice of beans.

    dunno why I waited to start roasting ...

    How could I guess it was the one that was going to go so quickly? There was no noise about it in the lead-up and nothing much in the wishing well to suggest that anyone was waiting for it.

    Its a great coffee and sadly apart from some at the Snobbery I cannot get any more until the next shipment. (I did ask for more but that was all we could get of this one).

    Still, those that grabbed some should be pretty happy with their choice.
