    GREEN BeanBay sale - Nov 2009

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    CoffeeSnobs Monthly GREEN BeanBay sale

    MONDAY 9th November 2009

    20:00 ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    19:30 SA
    19:00 QLD
    18:30 NT
    17:00 WA

    At the above date and times we will have the following *green beans appear in BeanBay

    Colombian Volcan Galeras Supremo - Jumbo supremo sized beans (18+ screen) make this Colombian roast pretty. Clean, graded and easy to roast it will work through a range of roast profiles but I like it at CS9-10 where it produces syrupy sweet pours. Great as a single origin coffee or ad something wild and funky to produce an exciting blend.
    $10.00/kg*

    Ethiopian Harrar Longberry
    The new crop of the Longberry has arrived! *Great grading for a dry processed coffee and as soon as you open the roasted bag you get hit with the fruity berry aromas that Harar is famous for. *Light in body as an espresso but with a tighter pour it will become a heavier shot. *Great coffee and we have plenty of it.
    $10.50/kg*

    Guatemala Huehuetenango SHB.
    We have managed to source some more of the popular Huehuetenango (pronounced Wee Wee Ten Ay Go). *Good body, sweet and balanced its washed and very well graded and is easy to get good roast results with this one.
    $9.50/kg*

    Sumatra Lintong Paranginan
    This wet hulled Lintong is a cleaner roast than most Sumatran beans due to its low chaff. *Some roasters will choose to take this one darker without adding as much smokey flavours that can come from smouldering chaff. *It will produce a bright, lemony citrus coffee at CS8 suitable for syphon or even drip but I still enjoy it at CS9 as a slightly earthy, heavier espresso.
    $10.00/kg*

    We have also sourced some more:
    Ethiopia Kuza
    Sumatra Panjang Mandheling
    Costa Rica Cafetalera Herbazu

    If you got the Costa last time it would be nice if you leave this small amount for other CSrs that missed it.


    * All pricing includes $0.50 FairCrack donation per kilo and cotton bag packaging.

    Details on the pickup points around the country are in this thread:

    I only just finished packing them at 11:30pm, ergo the late notice.

    Not just beans either, we also have new stock of teas and even some special Extra Virgin Olive Oil (bizarre but true)

    Yeah, I put it in live as we have it in stock. *As an interesting segway to Canberra... the owners of Masons Creek were in Canberra last week for the Australian Olive Oil show and won medals for this one (so its not only me that thinks its great).


    ...and yes, the new tea,
    Indian Camellia Sinesis STGFOP1
    is in there now too.

    Another great selection, Andy, thanks. And youve been upgrading the BeanBay Alert !? Very good. No excuse to miss it now.

    Re: GREEN BeanBay sale - Nov 2009

    Hi all

    I think Ill have to force myself to buy again as usual this time ... I have just paid for an ex-demo 2kg Has Garanti roaster which will arrive on my doorstep tomorrow morning :-) I need lots more to test it with.

    Does anyone have the descriptions of the Ethiopia Kuza and the Costa Rica Cafetalera Herbazu from last time?

    Andy,
    I know this is a really stupid question but its better to ask than be disappointed! Is Colombian Volcan Galeras Supremo what is commonly known as Colombian Supremo? I ask because I was given some Colombian Supremo and have found it the only green bean to date that I have enjoyed drinking as a result of my home roasting (I know, some people have no taste) and would be thrilled if Colombian Volcan Galeras Supremo is the same thing cause Ill order heaps!

    Hi Addicted,

    Supremo is generic Columbian for big (large). Andys Supremo is also big and you can be assured that there will be nothing generic about it. BeanBay greens are always exceptional *8-)

    If lots more CSers get 2kg or bigger roasters yes, we will buy lots more green.
    Slightly OT, but I read in the latest Cafe Culture magazine there had been a 15% increase in coffee roasting businesses in the past 12 months.

    Message to *CSers. Not sure if this is the right place but I am interested in starting a greenbean drop of centre/roasting group/ discussion group/whatever for the Central West of NSW. *Please send a PM if anyone is interested.

    Yeah, wot e said!
    ;)
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?board=KnockBox

    also those two were selected as the bean(s) of the month
    you will get some more opinions there (apart from my BeanBay one)
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1255328971

    The other place to research previous beans is the cupping room
    http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?board=cupping
    Too early to find those two in there but worth keeping in mind.

    It should be $60/kg but for you, yes, $12/kg inc FairCrack donation.

    Once again... to quote myself from the first post:

    I think if for some reason any is left at 8:30pm then its free for all but with only 30kg it will go fast.

    ...but those that missed out on the Costa can be happy that other CSrs who missed out last time got some.
    ::)
    ...and if it makes you feel better I didnt get any either as so many missed out last time I put the lot up. So enough with the spilt milk please... as always there are plenty of other beans... including at least one that I thought would start a fight.

    Same, Internode Extreme didnt save me though *:( Hit refresh, was there, was gone..

    In sympathy now I have another 15kg of others instead.....Ah i see it now, it was all a setup to get ppl to buy other beans instead *;)
    Assuming there will be no December BeanBay (same as last year?) so gotta last till end of January.

    Well done Andy!

    I dont know if there is a Dec one yet... the gotcha is always the freight places and the docks "get in the spirit of the season" in a couple of weeks and you cannot get them back to work till early next year.

    If we can land anything interesting in time will put up a December BeanBay.

    Not as though we are going to run out of beans with whats still left in BeanBayAndy. There are plenty of great beans still there - in big quantities - ones, like the Longberry, that would not have lasted to the end of BBs held earlier this year.

    If we can land anything interesting in time will put up a December BeanBay.
    Cool, well just in case I got enough, last year I was getting pretty desperate by Jan, even saved over some xmas money for beans. Not that i didnt have any left was just hankering the for excitement of another (BeanBay) sale.

    Hi Andy,

    Grabbed much goodness, including the Costa Rica bean I missed out on before - thank you! WooHoo...

    I sent you a PM - but here is the gist of it again...

    Is it possible to add to my order? 10*250g Stand-up Valve Coffee Bags?

    Invoice number 71244

    Best Regards,

    Marcus

    Re: GREEN BeanBay sale - Nov 2009

    I had strict instructions to behave myself, consider were moving in less than 6 weeks now and Ive already got about 25 x 2.5kg bags for the removalists!

    Id decided that if some Herbie was left over, Id grab some of that but, since I grabbed two bags last time, knew my chances were slim to none.

    So just grabbed some of the beautiful sounding Olive Oil (quote from Pete: "What theyre selling Olive Oil in 2.5kg bags now?") and valve bags this time...

    Its just about killing me, though, because I would have loved to grab some of the Supreme, the Kuza and Wee Wee... :(

    Another great one, Andy and thank you for all your efforts. Sorry you didnt have any of the Herbie left over for yourself.

    Cheers
    Di

    In many ways!

    I think im more addicted to buying it than actually drinking it. Well I never collected stamps, action figures or anything else...so coffee beans it is then. Plus Ive never seen a coffee collection on "Collectors" yet so lets aim for that. ::)

    ones, like the Longberry, that would not have lasted to the end of BBs held earlier this year
    You can see how hard it is to pick quantities although beans like the Peru Ceja, Brazil Pulped and the Harrar Longberry Im happy to carry as staples if we can get them in good quantities... it provides a buffer betweek seasons and shipments.

    So yes, we should have plenty of stock this year to carry through the "I cannot find anyone at work except for myself" period.

    PM, post, email... splattergun communication! Emailing andy@coff.... is always the best contact method for anything. I read that email address all over the place (ie: at the moment Im at the Snobbery, not home so I have web and email)

    I thought you were at the pub?
    :D
    Even more dangerous buying BeanBay beans from the boozer.

    errr.... only if the postie drops it.
    >:(

    I know the olive oil is a weird thing to have here but we are really enjoying this one at home and for the price of a box was happy to share. I look forward to hearing your opinion of its natural goodness.

    Tradition has it that we skip December each year... but maybe we wont. The difference is this year we have a little more storage space than previous years so we can carry more beans into the new year.

    Re: GREEN BeanBay sale - Nov 2009

    Another great list to choose from.
    I was a good boy and stayed away from the Herbie. However, coming in @ 21:50 and still seeing loads of options, I found myself grabbing some Columbian and some Wee-Wee. I feel we should be calling it This litle Piggy coffee.

    Cant make this pickup though. Have to go with delivery.

    Thanks again Andy for the great selections!
