Looks good Andy - is that yellow bourbon a pulped natural?
Monthly Green Bean BeanBay
MONDAY 18th June 2012
8:00pm QLD, ACT, NSW, VIC, TAS
7:30pm SA, NT
The new beans that will appear in BeanBay at the above times are:
Nicaragua Matagalpa Diamond Microlot $11.50/kg*
This Nicaraguan is a selection from a very small lot.* Washed and then sun dried its clean and well processed.* Roasted to CS9 it produced a doppio espresso with a silky velvet mouth feel, mid acidity and is a true bitter sweet cocoa bomb in the cup.* Great Central American coffee.
Brazil Yellow Bourbon Especial Reserve $12.50/kg*
New crop of the Brazil Yellow Bourbon Especial.* The Reserve tag signifies that this is a microlot, a specific section that was separated from the rest of the harvest.* Roasted to CS8 the dominant feature was nuttiness, at CS9 the sweetness came out and the coffee became more balanced.* Great as it is for fans of clean Brazilian coffees or use as a quality base to a funkier blend.
Kenya Muranga AA+ $14/kg*
This Kenya Muranga is graded to AA and above giving it the unofficial grade of AA+ or AAA.* Which really translates to all the largest beans after size grading and hand sorting the defects.* You will also find the odd bean still in its parchment wrapper that snuck through the sorting due to its size.* This coffee has a stunning ground aroma.* In the cup at CS9 its bright and clean with a granny smith type acidity that lingers nicely.* Excellent Kenyan coffee.
* 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 (express or road) and Star Track Express (air or road) along with some other options depending on where you live. or you can collect your paid order from Morgan Street (when Im there, late afternoons prefered).
Pickup Points (one per state)
(only an available option for a couple of days either side of the sale date).
QLD - "Simon T" - Brissy
NSW - Erkochurch - Erskinville
TAS - "ParaM" – Hobart
SA - Fiefys Specialty Cafe - Adelaide
WA - "Greeman" - Warwick
VIC - Veneziano- Abbotsford - 30th June 10:30-11:30 only
We hope to get beans to the pickup points by: 30/6/2012
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.
Looks good Andy - is that yellow bourbon a pulped natural?
Yep, it is a pulped natural. We purchased the entire microlot of this one, its a ripper.
I also need to mention that the QLD pickup this month will be hosted by CSr "Simon T". He offered to give it a go after the West End pickup went a little pear-shaped.
Simon will let everyone know in the thread when the beans arrive and what pickup time suits best, after that you can drop him a PM to get the address details.

I was privileged enough awhile ago to be given some of this wonderful bean as a green by a very good friend in the roasting circle.
I was informed that the roasting quality of this is comparable to the Panama Geisha, and I am happy to say that it is well worth it when it comes along.
Is Simon on Northside or Southside of Brissy?
Being the first QLD pickup hosted by Simon Im not sure where he will hold it.* He works in the city but might do it from home.
Not much help I know but getting together with other CSrs for a pickup shouldnt matter if you have to cross town to get to it.
Melbourne CSrs often drive an hour to do the pickup, its a great chance to meet others and toss tips and tricks around.
I live on the south side.
Ill set aside a suitable time at home for people to come and grab it.
Alternatively if the city suits some of you, i can bring it into work. I work up the story bridge end of town. The limiting factor is i ride a motorbike to work so i wont be carrying 20kg thats for sure.* :P
I recon you could carrying 20kg on your back if you tried. Might see you soon i suspect.
Hi just a quick question. For anybody really, but specifically Andy if he sees this post.
Just received my Behmor - Thanks Andy!! super quick service as always. Just checking if there are any beans in beanbay that ARENT particularly suited to the Behmor. Or is it just a matter of some are easier to roast than others but all would be suitable to some degree??
Thanks in advance.
They are all good, provided you are just talking about the green beans :P. Different types, different flavours, combined with different roasting profiles/times/methods and then blends = an enduring experiment that nevers end, just gets better.
what suburb southside do you live in? There is south, and then there is south!
Calamvale... So somewhere in between :p
No need to bring out the banjos.

The Yemens - because theyre a small bean and a lot of them will fall through the grill. Best to run these on a cooling cycle, and roast the ones that fall out using a different method.
Andy as we say you are the man to order green beans(or roasted for that matter) from. Ordered on Monday night. Order able to be tracked via internet. 11.00 a.m. today (Wed) our beans are here at the door delivered by our wonderful friendly Aussie Post Courier lady from Burpengary M.C. There will be great rejoicing in the camp now as we roast those wonderful not to be beaten WOW Decaff :) beans and others. Service with a personal touch. Thanks Andy once again. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
Any word on when we are likely to see the Bali Danau Batur again?
Hey Andy -
Am I too late to order for the erkochurch box?
Too late for the Melbourne pickup?
When they grow some more!Originally Posted by 5A554A595B5D505053523C0 link=1339854325/14#14 date=1340195376
We cannot land much of high grades so what we could secure from that crop we bought. Next season (later this year) we will get samples and see if we get it again.
Sadly, yes.Originally Posted by 4E535B594E5A5548463C0 link=1339854325/15#15 date=1340242977
As above.Originally Posted by 4F4B5D4E4A593C0 link=1339854325/16#16 date=1340275523
When pickup points are an available shipping option they show in the checkout of BeanBay. Once they are "closed" you wont see them in BeanBay.
Typically they are available for a couple of days either side of the green bean release.
We have plenty of other shipping options available all month.
Excellent! I love to hear that Im kicking the service goals. Its cool to send beans all over the country and have them arrive in the next day or so. Amazing really.Originally Posted by 54594E5E55593C0 link=1339854325/13#13 date=1340155440
I wish all my freight into the Snobbery was that fast though.

Brisbane have arrived, and it all looks like its present and accounted for :)
Im thinking about allocating an hour or 2 window on Saturday for you to come and grab them.
Does this suit people?
Dont forget if you work in the city, i can bring them in.
if this comment should belong in another thread, mods please move it.
I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the speed of delivery of your coffee Andy.
Paid for it online yesterday, just arrived at my doorstep about 15 minutes ago.
Is that some kind of record?
Now, if only every online business could be this efficient!
Saturday suits me fine. What time you thinking?
thinking around midday.
SA beans are ready to pick up @Fiefys during weekdays from 1.30pm-3pm.
We are appreciated you are coming during the specific time due to the cafe high traffic during the other times of the day.
See you guys soon* ;)

A thanks to Simon for hosting the collection. Thanks for a hassle free pickup and for being understanding of traffic - what the hell, its a Saturday!
Thanks again mate, will see you soon no doubt!
Picked up the beans. Thanks to greenman and Pam for hosting. Fantastic coffee and likewise the cream cheese/walnut cake. :)
Just a pity im not able to attend every pick up as caffeinefreak and greenman are always great hosts.
Gary at G
Thanks Trevor and Pam, another great bean pick up, nice to meet new snobbers.* The coffee anzac bikkies were very yummy, as was the coffee (didnt try the cake unfortunately :( ).* The pour over was amazing, never realised coffee could taste so fruity!* [smiley=thumbsup.gif]
greenman and pam were amazing hosts! beans all picked up for and even had amazing cups of coffee to boast!
loved the costa rica and ethiopia through the ccd
No worries. It all went pretty smoothly :)
Apologies again to everyone about being unorganized. I had an electrician mate at my place doing some work, so I was helping him. Next time Ill be a bit more hospitable :)
Thanks Greenman for hosting the pick up. Wish i had more time but duty calls. Maybe next time. Loved that pourover.
Eagerly awaiting to see what's coming this month.
