    Sydney BeanBay Pickup Point - March

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This thread is for discussions about the Sydney Pickup point for March.

    I expect that the courier will have the beans into Sydney 9th March.

    Re: Sydney BeanBay Pickup Point - March

    Hi Andy, Im a new bean that has taken advantage of the intro pack (great fun and value by the way) but at the rate Im roasting and consuming, there is no way its going to last me a month!!!

    Is this pickup fest for orders placed in Feb? I notice the beanbay is all sold out at the moment but bean told (sorry) it is probably due to preparing orders. Look, truth is, I just cant wait that long...I admit it - I already feel insecure about my stash and not knowing when my next supply is coming isnt helping me sleep...or maybe its because Im drinking coffee thats the consitency of molasses just before bedtime.

    Maybe an FAQ for newbies like me would be helpful? - sorry, gotta go for now....havent had a coffee since I started typing this email!

    Hi Dennis,

    BeanBay is "open" for a few days each month.... The only exception is the starter pack - and thats available all the time.

    Between BeanBay open days Andy is busy finding out what beans he can get, cupping them to see if they are of suitable quality for the next Bean Bay (and having a well earnt rest after the last one and all the sorting, packing and dispatching etc....)

    So in about 3 weeks or so from now....

    Dennis, do you really need to ration your beans? 2.4kg is a reasonable amount. Or is the problem more all the friends and rellies dropping in for a cuppa. If thats the case, hide your beans, say youve run out and let them drink something thin and watery that you make by taking a spoonful from a jar and adding hot water. ;D

    I have to say, Dennis, that I know what you mean. I have well over 30 kg of green beans now, and the only person who drinks it in my house is me. Dont do a lot of entertaining either, so it doesnt get used up that way. I still know, however, that if there is a truly interesting bean in the next Bean Bay (who am I kidding, that should read "whichever beans I dont already have") then Im going to buy it.

    At least Ill never be stuck for choice.... :P

    Hmm, this living out West NSW is no good :(, wish I could get to Sydney to be at this pick-up, guess online buying will have to suffice :-?
