    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - 9th October 2011

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

    SUNDAY 9th October
    20:00 AEDT


    Im pretty sure the overly complicated daylight savings timezones translate to:

    8:00pm ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
    7:30pm SA
    7:00pm QLD
    6:30pm NT
    5:00pm WA

    The new beans that will appear in BeanBay at the above times are:

    Colombian Volcan Galeras Supremo
    New stock of the CS favourite has just arrived.* Large supremo sized graded beans, clean and well sorted. This is a really easy bean to roast and works well through a range of roast depths.* In the cup it produces a bold, slightly spicy espresso that stands-up well in milk based drinks.* *$11.50/kg*

    Panama Finca Eleta Geisha
    one of those memorable coffees that we wished we could land all year round.* Fully washed and well graded it roasts very evenly and produces a pretty looking roast.* In the grinder you get a huge floral cloud of aromas that build the anticipation of the pour.* In the cup you find a mid bodied espresso with some of the same florals and a bright finish that leaves a pleasant linger.* Great Central American coffee. $16.50/kg*

    PNG Eastern Highland Wilds.* This is a strange coffee, really strange and possibly the ugliest coffee I have seen for a long time.* Im told it was picked from wild coffee trees and is ungraded, unsorted, full of different sized and different coloured beans .* Before dismissing the sample as floor sweepings I roasted some and found that it roasts surprisingly ok.* In the cup it produced a very big coffee that worked well as a latte or a macchiato but not as well as an espresso.* A good cheap blender at $8/kg*


    * 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 (one per state)

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - Erkochurch - Erskinville
    TAS - "ParaM" Hobart
    SA - Fiefys Specialty Cafe - Adelaide
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" - Wembley
    VIC - Veneziano - Abbotsford (Only available 22/10/11 10:30-11:30)


    We hope to get beans to the pickup points by: 21/10/2011

    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!

    Nice new beans Andy.... 8-)

    Ive had some real beauts from the Eastern Highlands (near Goroka). I can imagine why they call them "wild" - You should see the country the people live in, around these parts - not a level piece of ground to be found anywhere and usually between 70-80deg. mountain slopes is the norm... :o ;)

    Uncanny ... Ive only recently finished the last cup of my last roast of the Columbia Volcan Galeras, and in my notes file I wrote "Definitely get this one again". Then, just a few days later, it appears on beanbay!

    I wasnt planning to buy this time, but now Ive got to ... now where have i heard that before?

    yes, i couldnt resist getting 2.5kg bags of the Colombian Volcan Galeras Supremo and the Panama Finca Eleta Geisha. then it seemed a good idea to throw in a bag of something african for global balance (got the Tanzania Uru Estate) and postal economy.

    i think im in trouble now if next months is irresistable too as i have 3 months consumation ahead of me.

    Yeah, its all good fun and home roasting results can be amazing with some good beans and a little care during roasting.

    Enjoy!

    Seems a bit quiet tonight.
    Not the usual rush.
    Must be the end-of-school-holidays funk.

    Suits me though.
    All done and I cant wait to try the Geisha.
    I also grabbed some Tanzania - to try out some of the fruits of the Faircrack fund.

    Whats a nice CS range to aim for with the Geisha?

    Yes, Tango was the first to get beans from BBay... ordered at 8pm, picked up at 10pm (Im roasting Sundays roasts). Im afraid the rest of yas will have to wait a little longer.

    I came here last night to check out the green beans and noticed the Panama was sold out.

    I checked again in the afternoon and noticed there was a little bit more stock. Im guessing someone cancelled their order?

    Re: Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - 9th October 2011

    ...something like that.

    Long story... it was actually someone who changed from pickup @Morgan to direct freight interstate and I had to put the beans into their basket so I could reorder with the correct freight option. Took more than an hour in total with email banter back and for a little time during that the beans were viewable in BBay. Next time someone selects the wrong freight Ill delete their order and give them a credit... tough luck if someone else gets their beans. ::)

    Most of the orders shipped Monday (all the paid ones), more will go on Tuesday (the ones ordered after lunch Monday) and the pickup point beans will ship after roast day on Wednesday.

    People should be getting beans from Tuesday on...

    Happy roasting!

    No, I dont buy Yemen >:(. However when it takes 45 sec to grind enough for a double shot, I start to worry :( :(

    If so, can you bring a bag along with you tomorrow for a quick sale? :)
