    BeanBay Sale - 15th Sept 2009

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    (below is the email that was sent to everyone)


    I have just returned from a great couple of days at the Royal Adelaide Show were the South Australian State Cupping, Latte Art and Barista championships were run and won. Jonny took the Cupping and Latte Art crown in a great double and Fiefy won the Barista Championship for the second year in a row. Congrats to both!

    The really good news for CSírs is the coffee that we developed with Fiefy for this competition is now available to purchase roasted in BeanBay and we hope to carry this blend for as long as we can keep sourcing the contents. Due to the complexity of the blend it is only available as a 1kg minimum but Iím sure a friend or workmate will be happy to share a bag with you.

    BeanBay Green Bean Monthly Sale
    TUESDAY 15th September 2009
    beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au

    20:00 QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    19:30 SA, NT
    18:00 WA

    We will have the following beans available:
    Bolivia Caranavi Fairtrade & Organic
    India Plantation A Grade
    Nicaragua Dipilto Estate
    Papua New Guinea Wahgi AA
    Peru Ceja de Selva Estate
    (See the forum for more details)

    We are also launching an additional freight company for anyone sending their orders to a BUSINESS ADDRESS and NOT a PO BOX. Star Track Express are great value on heavier orders and offer very fast, traceable deliveries but they have been instructed to leave the parcel safe at the address if no one is in attendance. In BeanBay User Details, you will see 2 new options one to say this is a business address and one to say this is not a PO Box, please tick those boxes to see the Star Track Express freight options.

    There is also new lower pricing for the Melbourne metro courier and we should have even more freight options online next month for non-business addresses and PO box deliveries.

    Have a great coffee month!

    Re: BeanBay Sale - 15th Sept 2009


    Here is the list of coffees that will appear in BeanBay tonight

    Bolivia Caranavi Fairtrade Organic
    ...is the first certified Fairtrade and Organic at origin coffee that we have offered for a while. Its become rare to find both certifications on a good coffee and this is certainly a good coffee. Initially sweet with a nearly a brazil nut flavoured finish in the lighter test roast at CS8+ $10.50/kg*

    India Plantation A Grade
    ...comes from the Chikmaglur district. Its a clean washed and size graded coffee that produces a great body, mid acidity and a sweet finish. Really easy to roast, you should aim around CS9 for the best espresso results. $9.50/kg*

    Papua New Guinea Wahgi AA
    ...very well processed beans that produce an even roast. Good body, sweet in milk and another very easy bean to roast. Works well as a clean and bright CS8+ roast through to deeper espresso roasts at CS9+ An all round great coffee. $11/kg*

    Peru Ceja de Selva Estate $10.50/kg*
    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.

    Nicaragua Dipilto Estate
    ...is located in the north west of the country and they produce a clean, hand graded bean. In the cup you find a great example of a well balanced single origin. Mid bodied with some initial sweetness followed by a slightly citrus acidity in the finish at a CS9 roast depth. A really nice, crisp, clean Central American coffee. $10/kg*


    * Price includes $0.50 FairCrack per kilo and cotton packaging.

    (sorry to triple post but it manes sense to post these 3 this way)

    Please note that apart the new freight options mentioned we will also be having the Melbourne Pickup at Talk Coffee in Northcote to welcome the new roaster and toy site. Should be a fun morning.
    8-)

    This is also a one-off, and the October pickup will be at Veneziano in Abbotsford again.

    Without having tried either, I would say unlikely as they from different estates.

    But I thought Bella Vista was a Costa Rican coffee??

    *capuchin eyes the PNG Wahgi AA*

    Andy - along with cupping and roasting notes, maybe you need to consider adding spousal approval suggestions...?

    Great lineup!

    All the pickups are available in BeanBay now and as always, BeanBay shows the correct freight options for your address at the time of ordering (including the new courier options of both road and air freight)

    17.5kg of eight different beans is probably enough for one person... For now anyway.... :P

    Hehe - this is really funny to watch! The Bean Bayers Anonymous banter, I mean...

    Not that Im laughing at others misfortunes; BeanBay-addiction could hardly be called an affliction, right?

    Im overseas for this year so that really makes it impossible to buy beans! Hmm, although I suppose I could buy brown ;)

    Seriously though - by my estimates it was over 700kg greens, the vast majority of which went in 10 minutes! Very impressive thing youve got going here Andy!

    I wonder how long itll be before the majority of CSers have their cupboards full (and their credit cards maxed out! :P)! Do we really roast 700kg+ per month? Wow.

    Hope everyones enjoying their BeanBay. Strangely, theyre fun to watch from OS! ;)

    Keep up the amazing stuff, Andy.
    Cheers

    Re: BeanBay Sale - 15th Sept 2009

    You lot crack me up each month in this thread... I feel your pain and enjoy your joy and certainly understand your desire to stash beans around the house.
    ;D

    BeanBay went very smoothly, it was a new software version running it this month so I was very happy that it all worked so well. In between versions Geekrocket (the code guru) went to the USA so he has been doing most of the code from the otherside of the planet at very odd times of day/night. An awesome job he has done too!
    8-)

    One of the new things this month was the Star Track Express Satchels and Road freight. Cheaper rates, fast service and better tracking but the uptake was very small.

    Im curious as to why?

    :-?

    Star track service out my is a bit hit and miss. I prefer to stick with the tried and proven $15 oz post satchel :)

    I didnt use it as a pickup point is cheaper but TTYTT I didnt notice it as a delivery option.

    Well done. The new sw worked extremely well - it seemed much much faster. In fact I had to check my checkout stats a couple of times as I thought the sale didnt register. Tho i think the Peru must have been copping a bit of a lashing at the time I ordered as it paused for a couple of seconds before reading my order (or was that my conscience playing tricks with my imagination)

    I used the Star Courier option. Always happy to give something new a try, especially if it saves me money. Id have used the Melbourne pickup point but Ill be in Dimboola this weekend.

    Lets see how it goes...

    Well, I have just participated in my first Bean Bay.
    Bought my first ever green beans. Went crazy. Starter pack +10kgs extra.
    Now I have to read up and learn how to roast using Popper and or corretto. I went and bought heat gun on Sunday and have unused bread maker.

    My wife is understanding - so long as she gets her coffee and it is good. cant wait to 26/09 for pick up. Only 11 more sleeps...... :(

    Coffee Snobs is good but it is making me obsessed with coffee :D

    I used Startrack for my 30kg order as it was more convenient, much quicker, and about the same price. The office tolerates my snobbery but Im not sure that itll continue when 30kg lands on their doorstep! Bit heavier than most of the cases of wine that rock up regularly for other people... and perhaps slightly bulkier ::)

    I noticed the site was really quick tonight too.
