    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - Thursday 9th December

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    coffeesnobs.com.au
    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale

    Thursday 9th December
    8pm AEDT (Daylight Savings)

    7pm QLD
    8pm ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    7.30pm SA
    6.30pm NT
    5pm WA

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

    Ethiopia Ghimbi $12.50/kg (inc Faircrack)
    I was so excited when this sample arrived, its been 3 or 4 years since we have managed to score a Ghimbi coffee and the sample was just like I remembered. *The dry process Ethiopian Ghimbi comes from the far west of Ethiopia and produces a great bodied, low acidity *espresso full of fruit sweetness and berries. *Think Harrar with added body!

    Costa Rica San Isidro $10/kg (inc Faircrack)
    is a well processed hard bean coffee. *It produces a mid bodied and well balanced espresso with some sweetness and some of the brightness you expect from a Costa Rican. *Great for espresso at CS9, suitable for syphon and other gentle brewing methods at CS8

    PNG Wahgi AA arrived last week and is available now.

    I might/should/hope to have a couple of surprises in there too but these will be very limited quantity. *Sorry in advance to those that see something disappear before they can click.

    We also just landed a grand pile of super fresh teas in time for home made Christmas hampers and goodie bags.

    China Siaou Chu Pearl Tea
    Ceylon English Breakfast Tea
    Ceylon Irish Breakfast Tea
    Earl Grey blended tea.
    Russian Caravan Tea
    Sumatran Orange Pekoe Superior


    Pickup Points (one per state)

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - "cksyd" - Kellyville
    TAS - "ParaM" Hobart
    SA - The Coffee Barun - Sefton Park
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" Wembley
    VIC - Veneziano - Abbotsford --- (18/12/2010 10.30-11.30)

    We hope to get beans to the pickup points by: 18/12/2010

    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.

    NOTE:
    DUE TO THE CLOSE PROXIMITY OF CHRISTMAS ANY ORDERS NOT PAID FOR BY FRIDAY 10th WILL NOT SHIP TO THE PICKUP POINTS.

    No price per kg on the coffee?

    Too exciting and forgot? Probably working too hard and too tired :(

    Or are you keeping us more on edge, making the bean sale even more exciting and precarious ;D

    Awesome.
    Just in time for a [s]little[/s] big Christmas present for myself.

    The Ghimbi sounds interesting.
    Im a sucker for the Ethiopian beans and adore the Harrar so the prospect of Harrar with added body is pretty exciting.

    A little off-topic but I thought Id research Ghimbi/Gimbi and came across this blog. http://leonietriptoethiopia.blogspot.com/ about a midwife working in Gimbi

    Not a bad read, but if you scroll down to 20th March, she talks a bit about the coffee there.

    Re: Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - Thursday 9th December

    An intereesting read Flynn.

    I liked this...

    Thankfully I have not seen or been served in Ethiopia is instant coffee and I am not at all sorry to have found a country in Africa where "Nescafe" is not considered the desired drink when coffee is requested!

    ...and the following might explain why we dont get to see the Ghimbi as often as we had in the past. Road infrastructure!


    I am not sorry to have finished this last journey safely as the road trips to and from Gimbi were the only part of my adventure that ever felt dangerous. Thankfully if/when I return to Gimbi the road will be improved as the Chinese road building project is under way to finish the middle section that is currently so worn that it is much worse than travel on a mud or rubble road where the surface is at least predictably poor unlike the current irregular pot-holes- that just leaves a requirement for an improvement in driving standards (in particular the blind faith that nothing will coming the other way when overtaking will only yield appropriate returns if the roads stay quiet) and someone to control the cows, goats, sheep, donkeys, dogs and apparently suicidal pedestrians (so frankly I am not holding my breath that the journey will be anything other than safer by virtue of the fact that it is quicker, so you are in harms way for a shorter time).

    Re: Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - Thursday 9th December

    Wow, they were some nice surprises, Andy.

    Ive read all the glowing praise about the Yemen Bani Ismail but never had a chance to buy it so i jumped at the chance, whilst ive only ever had the Ugandan Masaba in the starter pack way back when so it too was a must buy.
    Ive also recently been intrigued by the prospect of roasting robusta beans so when i saw one there tonight, i thought i better get it.

    I also jagged a little of both this months main offerings and stocked up on a few other beans.
    I hope the courier is a strong one. *;D

    I had to top the cupboard up too, so yet more work for Andy :)

    Also like to express my gratitude - Andy provides a unique service for us; sourcing a good variety of quality beans, and then delivering domestic quantities at very reasonable rates. Im not sure if a specialty service like this actually exists anywhere else in the world, and without him none of us would have acces to anything like what we do now, so a very big thumbs up from here, and hopefully many more safe and happy Xmas to you as well!

    Ill lift a doppio piccolo to you Andy ;D

    I hope thats true for most CSrs! *I put in a lot of work behind the scenes to select great coffees and from my own perspective (remember I drink em too!) I think I get it pretty right most of the time. *CoffeeSnobs has never had a reason to sell bad coffee and as most people have found a few cents extra per cup can yeild amazing differences.

    Thanks! *Although I feel that my extended family/clan includes all the regular CSrs too.

    Sometimes threads get a little off topic or nasty (err, like a family get together can) but mostly the friendly and helpful contributions from all makes this a great community of great people with one thing in common, GREAT COFFEE!

    I just joined you for one of those (twas slightly over fresh Espresso Wow from Sunday night) but I left the milk out of mine.
    ;)

    Because of our late week BeanBay all of the orders will be packed tomorrow and over the weekend and should arrive early next week to most people and before the end of the week for the pickup points.

    Happy roasting!

    Order in. Thanks once again Andy.

    After a significantly long delay in finding the humour, Im still cracking up over the description of
    "Mysore Nuggets. Sure, its a name that would make schoolboys giggle". ;D Cant believe it had never occurred to me!

    True for me. You nearly always have something Ethiopian in BeanBay and that should make anyone happy - especially with the selection currently in there.

    The most rewarding aspect for me is coming back to a bean I didnt enjoy that much when I first bought it. With a better roaster and better technique, Im always thinking Gee, Im glad Ive still got more of that

    Absolutely, Andy.
    I was just saying last night that we dont know how lucky we are to have you and the service you provide us.

    You give us access to a wonderful cross section of beans from around the world and always at remarkably good prices and most importantly, we can buy from you safe in the knowledge that you would never sell us inferior beans.

    Its rare in any industry to find someone who remains passionate and isnt totally consumed by the almighty dollar.

    We dont thank you enough, Andy, but believe me when i say that we all greatly appreciate the opportunities you provide us.

    Thank you.

    Just placed a (large for me) order, Ive never purchased Brazilian before, but they were so affordable I couldnt resist getting 5kg! I dont recall ever seeing Brazilian beans in the beanbay before, but I dont check every time.

    The Bolivian sounded great and the Indian Monsoonal sounded fantastic as well, I cant wait to try them all!

    Thanks Andy! Awesome Selection of very affordable options!

    They Brazil Pulped Naturals are a regular feature of BeanBay and are very popular around these parts as a blend base.

    Youll have some fun with them, especially if blending is on your agenda.

    Re: Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - Thursday 9th December

    The pickup points shipping options are now closed so we can pack the beans over the weekend and ship them Monday morning. The exception is the Melbourne pick which will remain available till Wednesday (the last roast day) as I drive them there myself and dont have to fit a courier schedule.

    Most of the direct shipping (courier, Aust Post etc) orders shipped Friday and your [Previous Orders] tab in BeanBay should show that as the current status. Most of them should arrive Monday, I guess Tuesday for some considering the busy freight time of year.

    Enjoy!

    Ditto, Team WA Snobbers,
    had a great time, judging by my fragile state today, possibly a little too great.

    It was a pleasure to meet those we hadnt met before and most of all a big thank you to S&S for being such fabulous hosts,

    see you next year!

    Just had friends over from Canberra - they were quite interested in CS. Is there a Canberra pick up point? I couldnt see one listed in this months announcement.

    We have had CBR pickup points in the past (thanks Cruiserman!) but due to the cheaper freight we have haggled in the last 12 months most people just get beans sent direct now. So we have cut the pickup points back to just the ones with high volume, even some of those have a limited lifespan due to small volume or too many headaches.

    Your friends best bet is to do a single order together and send to one address, the freight will be as cheap as the pickup point options, you will get it faster and it takes a whole lot of admin overhead off me!

    :)

    I ordered 2.5 Kg each of Peru Ceja de Selva and PNG Wahgi yesterday at 12.30.

    Andy shipped it at 2pm and it arrived In Sydney at my door at 10am today, just when I was ready to roast.

    I think I will start now on the Peru.

    Great service from both Andy and Express Post.
