    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - 12th Sept 2011

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    coffeesnobs.com.au


    MONDAY 12th September

    8pm QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    7.30pm SA, NT
    6pm WA

    India Shimla Honey
    Typically the best Indian coffees we have found hail from around Mysore, this is the first time we have ever sourced a coffee this far north in India and its an exciting region.* High altitude and semi washed honey process this is a chaff monster during roasting.* Smooth, well rounded, great body and creamy mouth feel as an espresso shot.* Great coffee. $13/kg*

    Sulawesi Blue
    Amazing deep blue green colour from this wet hulled and hand sorted Sulawesi bean.* Easy to roast, requires a fair amount of heat early then a tapering heat curve before dropping at around CS9.* Lots of fruit, light acidity, super body and a little spice in the finish.* This is what great wet hulled indos are all about. $13.50/kg*

    Costa Rica Hacienda Miramonte
    Is a very clean well processed Central American coffee.* The farm is UTZ and RFA certified and nearly all of their crop is shade grown.* Crisp, mid bodied espresso shot that stands-up well in milk.* At a lighter roast it produces a great syphon or pour-over long black too. $11.50/kg*

    We have also landed some more stocks of some CS favourites so there is plenty of choice in BeanBay for everyone.


    * price per kilo packed in 2.5kg CoffeeSnobs cotton bags and includes the FairCrack $0.50/kg donation.


    You can select direct shipping via Australia Post and Star Track Express along with some other options depending on where you live or you can collect your paid order from...

    Pickup Points

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - "cksyd" - Kellyville
    NSW - Erkochurch - Erskinville
    TAS - "ParaM" Hobart
    SA - Fiefys Specialty Cafe - Adelaide
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" - Wembley
    VIC - Veneziano - Abbotsford (ONLY 24/9/11 10:30-11:30)


    We hope to get beans to the pickup points by: 30/9/2011

    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.

    Please dont annoy the pickup points by asking for your beans before they let you know in this thread they are available for collection.

    Enjoy!

    I was sitting here tonight thinking about buying some more greens and then I thought, surely the next Beanbay is coming up soon. No sooner had I finished this thought than your email came through Andy!! Psychic much??

    Looking forward to some of that Sulawesi!

    Yeah we do try and get it to land mid month but freight, logistics and customs sometimes hamper my best efforts.

    They are 3 really different offerings this month so everyone should be able to pick something that suits.

    I didnt know coffee was even grown that far north until the samples arrived. From the little I know its a fairly new growning region and we should see more high altitude Indian offerings in the coming years.

    Ill definitely be buying tonight, just need to work out how many bags I can stash :D

    Does the Instant Snobby Chai? have a reasonable shelf life? Thinking of it as a Chrissie present, but dont want to buy too early if it doesnt keep

    Official shelf life is 2 years... but I expect it would last for a lot longer than that!

    Oh no, i was hoping that the yirgacheffe would still be available, friends and family loved it, guess i will have to look at some of the other ethiopian coffees, they are always a hit.

    Correct. At exactly 8pm, the new beans will become available. There are sometimes some surprises too at that time (ie very small quantities of beans - only a few kilos available), which go quickly. Sometimes beans all vanish quickly, sometimes they remain available for the month. Just depends how eager people are.

    It has been a few months since last purchasing from Beanbay. Ive been trying to reduce the size of my stash, and Ive still a fair way to go.

    But then, Oscar Wilde once said "I can resist anything but temptation", and I just coudnt resist the Costa Rica.

    The Costa Rica San Marcos de Tarrazu Naranjo was really, really good. Im hoping the Costa Rica Hacienda Miramonte will be just as good.

    Cheers

    Hmmm. I had 20kg in the basket. Had to drop it back to 15kg.
    I have been pretty good using up my stash over the last year or so. So much so that I have 40 or so calico bags to return on the pickup day. Plus some boxes if you want them Andy!

    Thanks BrewTime, its been many 100s of hours in the making.... wasnt always this smooth a process but Im certainly happy/proud how it runs now.
    :)

    Well... All the couriers have been and gone today and Ive just returned from the Mail Centre shipping the BeanBay orders. The direct shipping orders should all start to arrive tomorrow and for the rest of the week depending on your location and shipping method.

    The pickup point orders will ship later in the week, we try to leave that shipping option open for a couple of days so everyone that wants to use the cheap freight can. It will most likely ship on Thursday so should be everywhere even earlier than the 30th delivery guess... but please wait for the pickup points to let you know in this thread its ready for collection.

    Happy roasting everyone!

    It always interests me to see the state of the boxes at the destination. We ship in double base fold, heavy boxes to try and ensure they get there ok. Looks like one of them got a "kick" in the side enroute but not enough for anything to fall out.

    Looks like a busy pickup on Friday at Erko Church!

    Hi WA Csnobs, pickup this Saturday afternoon, due to grand final it may be a bit later in the day. I will work it out tomorrow and PM everybody on the list. Mind you as there are no WA teams playing, so it should not be a problem ;D ;D

    Not everyone in WA follows a WA team, i certainly dont. Even though my team went down at Subi a couple weeks back i will definitely be watching the game and practising the Collingwood song all week.
    Will not be in a fit state to get to any beanbay pickup post GF.... pm sent Simon

    Go Pies!

    Ive not heard anything. Maybe give Veneziano a call during business hours and if the beans are ready for pickup post it up here so the others know.
