    BeanBay Green Sale - Dec 7th 2009

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    December already! *We have seen some great coffees this year but none more amazing than one of the coffees that will be in BeanBay on Monday afternoon.

    This coming BeanBay will have a remarkable coffee, not for its good body and acidity or its *performance in milk which are all very good but this coffee is remarkable for its provenance. *We have available the first crop of Tanzanian Rononi coffee that was processed on the pulpers that the CoffeeSnobs community funded through our FairCrack scheme.

    We have seen the farmers in the Kilimanjaro village bring beans to the central pulpery, we have seen curiosity of the locals wondering if this is a better way to do business, we have joined in the fascination of children watching this new machine separate the fruit pulp from the bean parchment and earlier this year their first crop went to auction in Moshe Tanzania and we purchased it.

    Thanks to the huge efforts from Bente and Ralph on the ground in Tanzania we shipped it around the world and thanks to Louise here who guided it through AQIS and freight forwarders it has arrived safe and sound at the Snobbery. *Due to the very small crop size and to be fair to CSírs there will be a limit of 2.5kg of green beans per member, it will also be available as a roasted bean for those that donít roast their own.

    We will also have two coffees from the Yunnan region of China. *Both are from the same area, one is fully washed and the other has been wet hulled. *Nearly the same bean with two different approaches to processing makes this a great opportunity to experience the effect *that *processing can make on the finished product.

    BEANBAY GREEN SALE
    Monday 7th December

    15 00 ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    14 30 SA
    14 00 QLD
    13 30 NT
    12 00 WA

    Yes this month the sale will be a Monday afternoon and will run until Wednesday. *That way we can ship and land to all the pickup points before the Christmas and New Year holidays.

    Also, dont forget to get your entries in for the 10,000 member competition, with only 50 members to go you will need to be fast to make sure you dont miss out on the huge prize pool.

    Enjoy the last few weeks of 2009, its been a great year for CoffeeSnobs everywhere and 2010 will only be better.

    Just reading up on the Yunnan province... wow. China is amazing! Yunnan is in a tropical latitude (like all coffee origins) but has a very mild climate because it is so mountainous (like all coffee origins); lots of rainfall (like all coffee origins), and the whole region has an average altitude of just under 2,000m... maybe you see the trend here.

    Id never thought of it as a potential origin! And on paper it looks like a ripper. Pretty exciting, I reckon. Look forward to hearing more about it.

    Enjoy your Bay.
    Cheers
    Stuart.

    Its great to see some coffee coming from those villages we helped.

    I remember asking if it were possible to get some coffee, from the people who processed the coffee on the pulpers that faircrack fund got them.It seemed that it would be a massive task.

    Great job Andy

    Damn - Ill have to buy some of this. Thanks Andy, Bente and Ralph for making it possible.

    The Chinese ones sound good too. A bit about Yunnan coffee:

    http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entries/happysheep/shangri-la-la/1233033060/tpod.html

    http://www.itmonline.org/arts/coffee.htm
    This site is interesting as it also talks about the health benefits of coffee. THe appendix at the bottom speaks of the history of coffee in Yunnan
    ..and if you feel a need to check it the area in person, stay at the Jade Emu guest house. Its co-run by an Aussie (Disclaimer: I only found this googling around so I have no affiliation and cant vouch for it. But this sounds like it might be ideal side-trip for my annual Singapore pilgrimage next year. )

    Tanzanian Rononi for me.

    Ive just tried the Yunnan (wet hulled) as a Brown Bay offering - pour over and espresso.

    Ahhh, I should make note that its not in BeanBay brown yet... a few people were lucky enough to get some in their roasted packs last week after we took delivery of the coffee... Grendel was obviously one of those.

    We had it in the snobbery grinder half this week and all the visitors enjoyed it so I would be surprised if it was. *Its a very interesting coffee, great body and works really well in milk.

    Just reading up on the Yunnan province... wow. China is amazing!
    I agree. *The two coffees are China Yunnan Hougu (wet hulled $9/kg) and China Yunnan Hougu (full washed $8.50/kg). The word Hougu translates to something similar to "distant valley".

    These are from the Dehong Hougu Coffee Co. Ltd and the scale of their coffee certainly makes our local industry look tiny. *This company has 10,000 acres of trees in Yunnan and they grow a 3rd of Chinas total coffee production.

    Of course, Yunnan is best known for its estate teas so there is a similarity between India and its coffee/tea growing too.

    For sure! *It looked like it wouldnt happen a few times but Bente and Ralph were amazing at getting this purchased at auction (which we cannot do directly) and packing it up then transporting it to Dar Es for shipping. *The gotcha is that it will be $12/kg (inc FairCrack $0.50) but heck, the price was never an issue for me. *Of course if they can grow 20 tonne next year we could land at a much better price per kilo.

    Hey Andy, Id just like to add a few sentences...

    Great Leaders not only have a vision, but have the personal qualities to excite others in sharing their vision and keep the momentum going to enable that goal to become reality. Thankyou for your vision.

    Your energy, determination, and goodwill, has destined FairCrack not only to provide tangible benefits to coffee farmers and their families, but has also given us a sense of connection with each other, and the communities who have and will be assisted through the scheme. Thankyou for believing we can make a difference.

    And to Bente and Ralph, and to the farmers and families, thankyou for all your hard work, for giving us a glimpse into your lives, and sharing with us the fruits of your labour.

    :)

    YES, you can make a grown man blush. *:-[
    I dont really know what to say apart from again borrowing Jeff Fenechs line "I love youse all".

    CoffeeSnobs has been a journey of ups and downs but mostly ups and certainly when we complete the circle it feels good, it is good and its only because of the great community of great people that we can do the impossible more often.

    Yes, noon on in the west and mid afternoon on the east will be a pain for some but I expect that there will be plenty of beans available for all so dont panic if you cannot get to a PC when it starts.

    We had to push this one in early because of Christmas and all the upcoming public holidays. *The middle of the day is so that CSrs bank transfers will clear 2 days earlier and we can freight everything quickly.
    (Monday afternoon transfers will hit our account Tuesday, the Tuesday night BeanBay transfers dont get to us till Thursday... BANKS!!!)


    So... this way we hope to get the pickup point beans shipped before the end of the week.

    :)

    Id wager that $20/kg wouldnt even raise an eyebrow here! If the money flows back to them in some small way, its a great thing.

    So very cool to see another chapter in this story.

    Sounds great Andy, looking forward to getting my hands on some of the fair crack processed coffees, and the ones from Yunnan.

    Have we had a coffee from China before? I may be imagining it, but I seem to remember having bought some roasted in past.

    *edit* as I think about this more, I dont think I bought the Chinese coffee from here, but Single Origin in Sydney. I distinctly recall thoroughly enjoying it and being BITTERLY disappointed when I went back to get some more and they had none left. Cant wait to have a tinker with some myself.

    Ahh comment on the Yunnan - did not like it at all in the pour-over but quite enjoyed it as an espresso. It is one of the first coffees that I have found that has radical differences on each method. Usually Ill like a in one form and love it in another but the Yunnan is an espresso beast for me. It may be the wet hull processing.

    (Ill get them all in the FairCrack threads too when I get a chance)

    1. The crate arrives on the CMG Charcot (via singapore where container on the Passat Spring changed ships)

    2. "Ta Da" The beans are there. 11 bags, 660kg of Rononis finest production yet.

    3. A close-up of the Rononi bag. From Kilimanjaro with love.

    4. Close-up of the beans.

    And with that sentence read off my iphone as I clock in to work, my promise to not buy any more beans for 2009 vanished in a puff of chaff.

    Any specific time tomorrow afternoon Andy?

    Slightly :)

    If Andy has landed over 600kg of the Tanzanian and says it will be rationed, I doubt you will miss out.

    F5 works in Firefox too, its the same as hitting the refresh button but somewhat easier if your fingers are on the keyboard and not on the mouse.

    Of course... hitting F5 or refeshing your browser just adds to server load and wont get you there any faster, in fact it will slow the process down with wasted and pointless data moving about.

    Best bet is to sync your clock to actual time as the server connects to a stratum 2 (very acurate) time server and will show the items at exactly the time scheduled. *The top left of the forum should show you the time on the CS server.

    Done and paid for.. at least once. Possibly 3 times.
    Tried to do the PayPal thing this timne for speed and it seemed to arc up when I tried to use my backup funding source. Twice told me it was not possible, so I went back to Bank Transfer. Hope it didnt hiccup through in PayPal, but Im sure well see soon enough.

    One each of Tanzanian and the 2 Chinese.

    I really dont need any beans at the moment but how could I refuse a faircrack bean and the chance to try two different processing methods from a region I have never tried before?

    Nor me! I didnt think another BeanBay would fit but the Rononi just landed and there was no way I could keep that a secret for any longer. As it was it took months to buy, freight and land it and once it was here I was hopping from foot to foot with excitement like a little kid at... well, like a little kid at this time of year!
    ;-)

    So... how was an afternoon BeanBay for everyone?

    It worked very well from my side. I was packing orders as the payments came through PayPal and as such, all the PayPal orders that were paid before 5:00pm odd shipped today and should arrive at most places tomorrow.

    The couriers and the post office all got a pile of beans today and tomorrow morning all the bank transfers that were done before 5pm should appear in our account and we can ship those out tomorrow too.

    8-)

    Luckily my 2:30 meeting finished early (I was going to walk out at 2:55 if it didnt), so no dramas but I wouldnt want them at that time every month.
