    Monthly BeanBay GREEN Bean Release - SUNDAY 19th August 2012 - 8pm AEST

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    SUNDAY 19th August 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:


    India Mullayanagiri Geisha $13/kg*
    This is a high altitude honey process bean. The varietal is unique to the area and is a Panama Geisha crossed with a Timor Hybrid to give better pest resistance. Looks a little patchy in colour but roasts well and produces a really good bodied espresso shot that works well as it is or in milk based drinks


    Costa Rica Tarrazu La Guaria $14/kg*
    This is a high grown very clean and well graded micro-lot coffee. Velvet smooth mouth feel and granny smith apple acidity it makes a great single origin espresso and should work well in a range or brewing devices and differing roast depths.


    Robusta - Indian Monsoon $7.50/kg*
    Very clean and well graded this robusta has been monsooned which lowers the acidity but it still packs a punch. While it's drinkable as a single origin when roasted to CS9-10 the real use of this bean is to fatten-up an Italian style espresso blend. Thick gelatinous crema and enough grunt to punch through milk.

    * 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 - SAT 25th August 10:30-11:30 only

    We hope to get beans to all the pickup points by: 31/8/2012

    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!

    Ooh. I've got my eye on that Costa Rican and the robusta. I wasn't planning on buying more greens. But I'm going to have to.

    Wow the India Mullayanagiri Geisha sounds interesting.

    I am running low on the Panama Finca Geisha that I have left.

    Back from a big weekend at the Maitland Aroma festival and just couldn't help myself but; "help myself" to some Robusta Monsoon and Mullayanagiri Geisha!

    Throw in some Ceylon EB and Sencha green tea to keep the other halve(s) happy and voila; I've dented the bank account again.

    Looking forward to the many variable pleasures of consumption that undoubtedly/hopefully follow.

    Oops. I just checked and it was a different Linda.
    Paula had packed it and put it in the Snobbery pickup area and from the contents I thought it was yours.

    Some great entertainment, informative discussions and coffee sampling from the demonstration/judging area.

    I paid for just 3 (exhibit) coffees over both days, judging only one as acceptable.
    Maybe I am becoming a bit too critical from consuming quality home roasted/brewed CS beans.

    I am confident the coffee culture in this region will continue to evolve, thanks to the Aroma Fest and the www.

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,

    Brisbane beans arrived the other day. Im unavailable this weekend, but will make a time the following weekend. Probably on Saturday morning (8th) but watch this space.

    If you need your beans before then, and are in/around the city, let me know as i can bring them to work with me.

    SA beans are ready to pick up @Fiefy's 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 *

    Thanks for a great afternoon greenman. Wish I could have stayed around longer to try and the different coffees and gadgets. I loved your coffee set up. Super impressive.

    It was a hectic but most enjoyable pickup, thanks for bringing the Pharos conical hand grinder Paul, it made a great espresso!! It was great seeing the looks on peoples faces who had never experienced a syphon brew before, I think some sponsors might be selling a syphon or two!! Big thanks to Albert for the Indo greens and his lathe turning handiwork!! Thanks Chris for the Barista's Own milk to try--it textured really well!!
    Looking forward to catching up again next month
    cheers

    Hi All, apologies for the late pick up..... but the Brisbane bean pickup window will be 10:30-midday on Saturday from my place.

    Please PM me for my address if you dont have it.

    Alternatively you can still pick up from the city if thats easier... i can bring them in to work.
