    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Release - MONDAY 23rd July 2012 - 8pm AEST

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

    MONDAY 23rd July 2012
    20:00 AEST

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

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

    Yemen Bani Ismail $22.50/kg*
    It's of no surprise to many that one of my favourite coffees on the planet is the ugly little Yemen beans. The Yemen Bani Ismail is full of ripe fruit flavours and packs a punch even in small ratios in a blend. This is a very small bean and will give some grief in perforated drum roasters although shaking out the smallest of the beans before roasting will help avoid too many sticking in the holes. Very dense and takes a lot of heat, take this one dark to get fat fruit and cocoa flavours.


    Ethiopia Sidamo Guji $10/kg*
    It's been a few years since we landed the Ethiopia Sidamo Guji. The previous one we had was dry processed, this one is fully washed and very well graded and resembles a good Yirg. Roasting is far more even and controllable and it works well at the lighter roast depths (CS8+) for plunger and a darker roast (CS9+) softens the acidity. Great coffee and really good value.


    Ethiopia Ghimbi $11.50/kg*
    Ghimbi is back! This dry processed Western Ethiopian has plenty of coffeesnobs fans. Motley colours during a roast don't stop this bean from having some great earthy and spicy attributes with more than a hint of coffee cherry fruits. Great body at a CS9 roast depth and it works well as a unique single origin coffee or you use it to add some interest to a blend.


    * 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 I'm there, late afternoons preferred).


    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 - 28th July 10:30-11:30 only

    We hope to get beans to all the pickup points by: 28/7/2012

    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 don't annoy the pickup points by asking for your beans before they let you know in this thread they are available for collection.

    Enjoy!

    Oh, you have outdone yourself Andy. My old friend, Sid Guji, nestled among two other stunning beans.

    So is Bean Bay email notification now on the to-do list since changing the forum software?

    My email came through Flynnaus, roughly at the same time as the forum notification.

    Well I guess that answers that question. I usually always get them but it must be my turn to miss out

    I didn't get the email either (double checked junk mail filters etc)....first time I have missed out. Wonder if it might relate to accounts that had their display names changed manually by Andy?

    I got one.
    ...and they were all sent out.

    There is a bigpuddle pattern in this thread already (not all but most) so maybe Telstra junked them?
    I'll have a look but once email leaves here it's up to others to deliver it.

    The heads-up was also tweeted and facebooked and posted here so most people should come across one of the methods.

    I'm still getting "out of office replies" so maybe they are queued through a small funnel somewhere?

    I'll do some more investigation after the insanity that is "BeanBay week"

    I did not receive the email notification, first one I have missed. Email via Internode. Checked the email address in "settings" and it is correct. Hope feedback is useful

    It's a conspiracy. Andy secretly wants to keep the Yemen all to himself.

    I received an email at 2.40pm.

    A lot of people use coffee bags for weed matting. You can buy them from recyclers on ebay

    Nup, that's not it.
    The email was sent to 20,000+ members in blocks of 500 at a time.

    It was sent to the email address that was in the forum at 2:30am this morning
    (you can check which address under - (Forum Actions / Edit profile) at the top of this page)

    Such is the way of the Internet now that some officious email servers might see it as spamish and put a delay on delivery (common IT admin trick). There are a few different ways I can go but as I mentioned... not during BeanBay week.

    Thanks Andy. Wasn't complaining....just trying to help diagnosis. I'll tell you what....if my IT people have consciously done this I'm going to remove their Dungeons and Dragons priviliges.

    It was more to confirm that the emails were sent and that I will look at my options moving forward.

    Not sure if it's part of the bug but I bought some Panama in my order. I'm sure it showed 27.5 kg when I hit the Go button but it still shows 27.5?

    Just to add that I also didn't receive email (until 2.40am this morning that is), but on the plus side I wasn't planning on an order anyway.
    Like somebody else I'm on Internode however a fellow snob is as well and he got email Monday morning, weird...

    Yemen!!! Fantastic! Wasn't expecting to see any for a while, so well done and thank you, Andy.

    (Might have to break my doc-imposed caffeine embargo for them!

    Btw - got my email at 12.10am, so a pleasant surprise when i switched on this morning.

    My notification email came through 1 minute before my confirmation of order email (Monday night around 8:30pm). Sounds like some funky admin voodoo from the people at big puddle!

    Just got the BeanBay email (4.14pm Tuesday) . 'Sent Time' according to my system was 4.10pm Tuesday. Dunno if that means anything.

    Next time

    Nice lot Andy, FYI, email came 03:40 this (Tuesday) morning (Gmail). I must have to redo the Facebook, I 'liked' it ages ago.

    Good morning! I need help here.

    I've added Guji in my cart but am unable to get past the shipping details page because I live in Singapore. How do I have them shipped to Singapore? And what do I fill in for suburbs field?

    n00b,
    Beanbay is not set up to do overseas shipping to my knowledge.
    I think you should send Andy an email (not a PM) and discuss whether it is possible to order for Singapore.
    My feeling is that the postage alone would make it unlikely to be worth it.

    Brett.

    Damm! Thought I had the new world record. Got mine at 7.11am this morning. Ah well, will have to settle for the silver medal at this stage. No probs, all the info needed exists in beanbay anyway.

    Maybe the provisional gold medal goes to Optus........ mine came through at 8.40 am 25/07!!
    But it pays to be vigilant and I was way ahead of Optus and soon to be in Yemen heaven!!

    Yep, like Brett said...
    It's working perfectly if you cannot ship overseas!

    Postage overseas is too expensive. 2.5kg to Singapore is AU$65 and I have to spend 40 minutes extra filling in customs forms and posting over the counter in the post office.

    See the pricing calulator on the Aust Post site:
    Parcels International - Australia Post

    You can organise your own freight company to pick it up from Morgan St but I doubt the $ will make sense.

    my email finally showed up today, showed as being sent at 10.10 tuesday night - we're protected by mail guard so not sure if that could cause issues, though it's never taken this long to arrive before...
