    BeanBay GREEN sale - 15th August 2010

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

    Sunday 15th August

    8pm QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    7.30pm SA, NT
    6pm WA
    http://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au

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

    Ethiopian Guna Limmu $10.00/kg*
    Mid bodied coffee with a green apple crispness when roasted to a CS8 and red apple sweetness at CS10. Full washed, clean, and well greaded this is the best Limmu we have sampled in years.

    Guatemala Huehuetenango $11.50/kg*
    This was grown by the winner of the previous three Guatemala Cup of Excellence competitions. http://www.fincaelinjerto.com A huge body, velvety viscosity and a nectarine aroma makes this a stunning coffee.

    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.

    India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold $10.00/kg*
    Sure, its a name that would make schoolboys giggle but its actually a really great coffee. Mild with a huge body and lots of sweetness makes this a great single origin and also perfect as an espresso base for some wilder flavours. For me this works best at the start of second crack at a CS9 roast depth.


    * 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 - Keffa Han - Port Melbourne --- (Federal Election Day 21/8 10am)
    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:
    27/8/2010 (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.

    Oooh, new green sale time. :)

    All four offerings appeal so ill have to do some research over the weekend and decide which ones suit my tastes and my noob-roasting status.

    Referring to a previous Bean Bay offering, Huehuetenango was written as being pronounced Wee Wee Ten Ay Go :) Easy!

    Hey Andy, you are spoiling us yet again with another great lineup.
    Long time since we have seen some Limmu so that has to be my first pick. Im tempted to grab another lot of the Nuggets as the first roast of that has been great. Its hard to pass up Yirg too when its around but I may have to pass on it cause the Stash is bulging and I already have a supply, no thanks to AP, but thanks to you Andy.

    Cheers,
    Alan

    Very exciting. Have already gotten myself organised to have the kids in bed at 6:30 so I can be ready on the computer with fingers poised at 8pm.


    REALLY want to try the Guatemala Huehuetenango. However it is pronounced, it sounds tasty.

    Ethiopian Guna Limmu sounds good too.

    waiting...........waiting..........waiting........ ..

    Hey Andy,

    Any chance any of these beans will be available in Brown for purchase in Beanbay!? Specifically the Limmu?

    Cheers

    Yes the Limmu will appear as a roasted bean in the future, we just landed more stock of the Harrar and while the two beans are vastly different there is a limit to how many varietal choices we have as roasted. We should be rotating the Harrar and Limu and Yirg very soon though!

    Bean left around waiting for a sale... no, sorry its not what we do.

    Per the front of BeanBay

    CoffeeSnob beans freshly roasted to order. Select the beans you would like to purchase, select the freight options in the checkout and transfer payment either via Internet bank transfer or credit card (via PayPal). We aim to have these roast to order beans delivered within a week of ordering and often even quicker depending on the timing of your order.
    The main roast days are SUNDAY and WEDNESDAY (other days on demand) as soon as your beans are roasted we pack and express freight them.
    SCHEDULED COMING ROAST DATES: 8/8, 11/8, 15/8, 18/8, 22/8, 25/8, 29/8, 1/9


    Im roasting orders now!
    Next roast day is Wednesday.

    Going to prove today it doesnt matter where in the world you are, you can always make a beanbay. Not sure if it the commitment to the bean or I have finally lost it but just because Im in the Northern Hemisphere wont hold me back from that Limmu :P

    After a few days of research and deliberation i finally settled on the Yirg and Huehuetenango and luckily for me i got in early enough to get both. *:)

    I do so hope the Limmu bobs up again in the not too distant future because it really did appeal but one must have restraint.

    Bagged myself some Huehue and mysore - couldnt resist with a name like that!
    Also got some snobby chai to try out for the missus (loves chai) and Im interested as well.

    EDIT: Been 7 months since my last buy as I just realised on the invoice screen - thats depressing!

    I threw in some cocoa for the first time tonight, actually.

    My better half has set a limit of two new batches of green a month, but she said nothing about cocoa. ;D

    Great,

    Got one of each, and a bag of waghi. Really looking forward to trying the Yirg.... and the rest, come to think of it.

    got myself some yirgs and huehue too - just as I have roasted my last bit of yirgs last week.

    the last beanbay I believe the yirgs ran out in under 2 minutes. Looks like it is well stocked this time - thanks Andy!

    c u guys at the pickup

    Thanks Andy, yet another smooth BeanBay this month with it seems enough for everyone... Thankfully for me, my other half is away...so 7.5kg in total for me this month, Yirg (the other 1/2s fav), Limmu and Hue Hue.

    Cheers! ;)

    Ive got Nuggets
    ..sore ones at that!

    Which will be harder to explain to the better half than over buying beans and cocoa.

    (love the schoolyard, anyone know any good fart jokes?)

    ...you still have to find a place to hide em.

    I think there was a thread on that topic a while ago.

    I threw in some cocoa for the first time tonight, actually.
    The dutch one is lovely - have tried it at keffa han last week, mixed 2 parts sugar to 1 part cocoa (thats what Claude did I think) it came up an absolute treat

    sounds like it might be a busy pickup at KH on saturday
