(at least I think that's how the current daylight savings works!)
The new release beans that will appear in BeanBay are:
Rwanda Nyungwe $10.50/kg*
Rwanda Nyungwe is a high altitude coffee grown in high rainfall area. Small beans but I found that roasted to the start of CS10 on a long slow profile it became a bitter sweet cocoa bomb. It's an easy bean to roast as it take the heat in a smooth curve. In the cup it had a great body and worked well as a single origin espresso shot but worked equally great in a latte.
Sulawesi Blue Peaberry $13/50/kg*
Sulawesi Blue Peaberry is one of the best graded wet hulled coffees I've ever seen. All the peaberries are the same size range and very few have the typical wet hulled cow hoof splits or the brokens. More dense than the Sulawesi Blue it takes a hotter, slower roast and I think works best at high CS9. Spicy, heavy, syrup like pours with a super body and a nice sweet blood plum finish. Hard to stop at one shot of this one when you get the roast profile right.
* 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).

We hope to get beans to all the pickup points by: 27/10/2012
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.
