    BeanBay GREEN sale - 7th June 2010

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    BeanBay GREEN BEAN sale

    Monday 7th June

    2000 QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS (8pm)
    1930 SA, NT
    1800 WA
    http://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au

    The beans available at the above date/times will be:


    Costa Rica Tarrazu SHB $9.50/kg*
    Grown at a high altitude this very dense bean will take a fair bit of heat to roast but its well graded and roasts evenly. The resulting espresso at a CS9 is sweet, bright and balanced in the cup and is a great Central American bean.


    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Special Prep $12.50/kg*
    Certified organic at origin, this Yirgacheffe has been screened and hand graded to a very high quality green bean. Use caution roasting as it really accelerates after CS8 and can quickly get away from you. Bright with a sweet floral aroma and light body at a CS8-9, at darker roast depths it lost some of the bouquet but gained in body. Stunning coffee and well worth the heavier price tag.


    Sumatra Aceh Wet Hulled Gr1 $10.00/kg*
    Deep dark blue green and nearly translucent in colour this wet hulled Aceh is processed very well and roasts-up a treat. In the cup at a CS9 it has a heavy body and low acidity that make a great single origin espresso. We would have this all the time if we could source this quality and grade, sadly we could only get a small amount but hope to land more soon.


    Sulawesi Toraja Utara $10.50/kg*
    It has been a while since we have found a good Sulawesi coffee but this one certainly stood out in the roast tests. Huge body and earthy without being musty it pours like syrup from the group at a CS9-10 roast depth. As a dopio espresso it has a velvet mouth feel and a spicy aftertaste that will make you pour a second one.


    Yemen Bani Ismail $21.50/kg*
    The Yemen Bani Ismail coffee has arrived. Sun dried, ungraded they look ugly and take quite a bit of heat to roast. In the cup you will find a heavy bodied espresso with loads of cocoa, heavy berry and earthy flavours like no other. If you enjoy really big bold coffees then you should love this. You can also use this coffee in smaller percentages to liven-up a less interesting blend.


    Rwanda Ndera A grade $9.00/kg*
    This is a Bourbon varietal, washed and screened to A grade at the Ndera washing station. Our roast tests of this came up with spicy cocoa at a roast depth of CS9-10 which was far nicer than the CS8-9 lighter roast which had a little too much acid as a short black. Easy to roast and you should get great results too.

    * Prices include a $0.50/kg FairCrack donation. All beans are packed in 2.5kg cotton bags which are perfect for storing your beans in.


    Pickup Points

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - "cksyd" - Kellyville
    NSW - Cuppacoffee - Sylvania
    NSW - Coffee Parts Pagewood
    VIC - Veneziano - Abbotsford (19/6/10 10:30-11:30)
    TAS - "ParaM" Hobart
    SA - The Coffee Barun - Sefton Park
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" Wembley

    Please Note: Because so many CSrs are selecing direct freight options we have dropped some of the smaller pickup point locations.

    We hope to get beans to the pickup points by:
    19/6/2010 (maybe earlier)

    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.

    Feel free to discuss pickup point pickups and plan the social get togethers (eg: who is bringing cake) in this thread.

    Nice line up Andy.

    What does the "Special Prep" for the Yirg signify? I noticed campos had a "yirg special prep" months ago and it was an amazing coffee. If this one is anything like it, we are in for a real treat.

    Congratulations Andy - something for everyone there. Id thought Id done well to bring my stash down towards a more sensible quantity but I think youve put the mocker on that.

    Ive already got several kg of Sulawesi in my stash, but the Aceh ....hmmm,...and the Yirg...oooh, and the YBI ...aaah!

    Great selection Andy, dampened when I noted "Real Coffee" at Lorn has been dropped as a pick up point. *:(
    Have some thinking to do now before Monday night as to my options.
    :-/

    What does the "Special Prep" for the Yirg
    Special prep and triple pick are generally the same thing. Its a third pass over the hand sorting tables to remove visual defects. Triple picking adds a dollar or more per kilo but you endup with very high grade even beans.

    but the Aceh ....hmmm,...and the Yirg...oooh, and the YBI ...aaah
    The growing volume of my own stash is suffering for the same reason... just when I managed to get it down we land amazing beans that I just cannot say no to.

    Yep, both the Sulawesi and the Sumatran are excellent.

    Yes. For more than 3 months I have paid to send directly to CSrs in Bernie, Canberra, Lonny and Newcastle as most CSrs in those areas are paying to have their beans delivered to the door. I cannot afford to continue that.

    If down the track the demand is there for a pickup point in another area we will revisit it. Its all about volume shipped Im afraid.

    The other pickup points are well used and we can continue to subsidise the freight to them.

    So does this mean no rocks, nails and sand too. Last batch I was a bit dissapointed the biggest non coffee bit I got was a few bits of sand after being told of the potential special additives.

    Must beat Linda and the other Yemen hogs to it *::) and another Yirg to try and I was trying to cut back too oh well next month I will cut back reallt I will *:D

    Yep, but BeanBay handles that... if your postcode is in a delivery area and your not using a PO Box then you will see that as an option. Courier deliveries should be to places that are attended during the day as often they need a signature on delivery.

    Andy, you sure know how to pick them.
    Just roasted my last bit of Toraja this afternoon, Ive got one small roast of Yirg left and a son that wont drink anything but that or Limmu and then you add the Sumatra and the Tarrazu. Im afraid Im just going to have get them all (if Im quick enough). I still have plenty of Yemen or that would be on the list too.
    Cheers,
    Alan

    Must agree with this statement.

    Ive been waiting a long time for this one. I have also been trying to diminish my stash before buying any more, but this beanbay will see the shelves in the cupboard full again.

    Please let there be some YBI left when I get on BeanBay tonight....please. Oh and some Yirg, maybe the Tarrazu or the Aceh....and a little bit of Ndera and Toraja. :D

    Methinks my Behmor is going to get a thorough workout if I manage to get my wish list! 8-)

    Bit new to this game although have previously ordered and received before...Missed out on a members card and CS colour guide....Andy on Holidays....so perhaps thats the issue.
    Want to buy from the June 7th offerings...but how?
    Bean bay is not showing the offerings as yet, although I have received the advice email....Apologies if more patience is required.
    Is there a secret handshake or code to access these excellent offerings as Im feeling somewhat lagging at the moment ...Dont want to miss out!
    Guidance welcomed
    Thanks Juliet Lima

    Hello Juliet,

    The member card doesnt happen automatically. It needs to be added to your basket as a part of your order...This might also be a reason *:-?

    I thought there was going to be more African Red hot choc. only 500g left in which I will grab but Andy said there was more. Maybe he meant the Dutch Choc. there was only 1kg to start with. Hopefully there is more as I would like to order more.

    Thank goodness, after many refreshes, much cursing (good thing the kids have gone to bed!!!) and some swift clicking, managed to get some Sulawesi, Costa Rican and Rwandan. Phew, the Boganvilleans survive for another month! :D

    Thanks for another great Beanbay, Andy, :-* although a bit heartstopping this time, particularly after waiting over for 18 months for another Sulawesi!!! :)

    DSGFH--home roasting only saves you money when the stockpile is almost gone!! >:(
    & theres the problem. After one roast of the Monsoon Malabar from last month I was left regretting not ordering the whole lot & am loath to make that mistake again. I already know that Ill get into blending to use up my least favorite coffees this year, then stock up big on the ones I loved next time they come up.

    Gees you guys are greedy ::) Who snaffled all the Yirg? Luckily I still have plenty.

    I think the server must have almost gone into meltdown. I logged in - saw 110kg of Yirg. By the time I got there -all gone :( I only just managed to grab a bag of Aceh.
