    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - 16th Jan 2012

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

    Monday 16th Jan 2012*
    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:


    India Monsoon Malabar Gold $10.50/kg*
    is a AA grade large screen size monsooned coffee.* The coffee is left to dry on racks slowly through the wet and windy monsoon season and this unique process yeilds a light weight, large size bean.* Easy to roast it produces a crema monster in the cup with heavy bodied gelatinous crema and spicy, earthy flavours.* Often enjoyed as a low acidity single origin or added to a blend to improve the crema.
    Due to the size of the beans this is packed in 2kg lots.


    Guatemala Huehuetenango $11.50/kg*
    is a high grown and well processed coffee.* Bright and lively granny smith type acidity at a high CS8 roast depth which softens as you take it darker into CS9.* Mid bodied espresso shots that really cut through the taller milk drinks with dry, clean finish.* Excellent Central American coffee.


    Kenya Kieni Mugaga AA $19/kg*
    is an amazing Kenyan coffee.* Large bean size and well graded it was milled by the Kieni coop who continue to produce some of the best coffees in Kenyan competition every year.* This is a very hard bean that takes some heat early in the roast, it also darkens at a lower temperature (higher sugars maybe?) so roast by the probe not the colour.* Huge room filling florals off the grinder and big bright espresso screams Kenyan at you.* Pricey but a great example of how good a Kenyan can be.


    Jamaican Blue Mountain $96/kg*
    We have purchased a single barrel from the Stoneleigh coffee mill.* Stoneleigh is owned by the Jamaica Coffee Corporation and is a new, state of the art coffee mill on the Blue Mountain producing the highest grade JBM available.* This is one of the most expensive coffees in the world if you dont count the ones that come out of critters.* Is it worth it?* I have always thought the JBM is overpriced but if you have never tried genuine Blue Mountain coffee then for around $1 a cup you now can.* Due to the high purchase cost this has been packed in 1kg foil bags (not 2.5kg cotton) so you wont need a second mortgage to try it.




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

    Last week we landed a huge amount of the Monsoon so it wont sell out today but it is the only shipment for the year. If I had to guess I would say we have 6 months supply but Ive been wrong before.

    You will need to roast the GREEN beans, but Andy also has fresh ROASTED beans available on the site, as well as other goodies!

    Im looking forward to my new grean bean arrivals!!

    Still new to roasting so tried seaching for Kenya Kieni Mugaga AA to get some roasting tips but came up empty handed. So when Andy says roast by the probe not the colour what bean temperature should you be looking for with this bean?

    what bean temperature should you be looking for with this bean?
    Whatever your "normal" temperature is.

    Its hard to compare temperatures between different roasters or flavour preferences.* My point about the probe was that if you go by colour alone this bean will darken early and you will endup with an underdone roast.

    Take lots of notes while you roast and you will be able to adjust future roasts to suit you.

    The coffee for the pickup points shipped today!

    You can track it on the Aust Post website:

    WA http://auspost.com.au/track/track.html?id=JQQ0002495

    QLD http://auspost.com.au/track/track.html?id=JQQ0002498

    TAS http://auspost.com.au/track/track.html?id=JQQ0002499

    SA* *http://auspost.com.au/track/track.html?id=JQQ0002500

    NSW http://auspost.com.au/track/track.html?id=JQQ0002501

    Just becuase it arrvies at the destination doesnt mean its ready to be collected... and dont fret if it looks like its not moving as tracking is pretty lazy until it gets to the destination post office.

    Typically the pickup points will post in this thread when the coffee is available.

    Enjoy!

    Received my order yesterday; Indian mm and eth gambella. Cant wait to fire up the coretto and roast them up; very keen to try both these coffees! In retrospect I should have got some huehue as well; guess itll have to wait till next month.* ;)

    didnt get the email
    18,700 emails sent.* We send them to the email address you have using in the forum (under [UserCP] at the top).* Gmail and Hotmail sometimes toss it into the "trash" as we send so many emails at once to their users it looks like spam.

    Its also posted in this forum before the green beans sale too... so plenty of notification options.

    Yep, and after a quick look in the Snobbery there is nearly no chance of it still being there next month.

    We will be landing different beans for the mid-Feb BeanBay sale, and there are no more Guats in the customs clearance queue.

    Selecting [Hide email from public] is fine... in fact I would recommend it.

    The monthly email we send will still use the email address above that to send you an email whichever way you set [hide email from public]

    Hey Andy,

    Was just wondering if its possible at some point for beanbay to display when stock of a particular bean is getting low, rather than just "available" or "sold out"? Might just help some of us with juggling multiple bean wishes; if not do-able of course no dramas, but just thought Id ask...

    Loving my current Sulawesi and Yirgacheffe crop too, btw; thanks for feeding my habit! ;D

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Re: Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Sale - 16th Jan 2012

    We already do that sometimes. The gotcha is... whats "low"? We can sell 200kg of a single bean in a morning so it can go from available to gone in a flash.

    The India Kodagu Geisha in BeanBay is showing as 10kg in stock currently...

    As always when its gone its gone, the slide indicator might not help much so buy what you want when its available and dont get too upset when its gone.

    Pretty sure that BeanBay already does this.
    Dont know how the threshold where the display changes from Available to n Kgs in stock works, but it seems to work for me.

    Well there you go; Ive never seen that before in beanbay, only available or sold out- obviously a timing thing. Should have known youd already be one step ahead! Thanks again for all the lovely beans and keeping this coffee snob caffeinated!!

    I popped by yesterday - just present yourelf at the counter and theyll hand you a box of green bean goodies.

    I can recommend staying for a couple of coffees too.

    Is there a pick up at Veneziano in Melb tomorrow? It is mentioned in the Beanbay announcement but is not an option in the Freight section of the order process.
