Coffee Co-op. Surplus beans.
« on: 20/06/2016, 10:17 AM »
A small group of my friends got together and formed a Coffee Co-op. Our purpose is to source high quality green coffee beans that WE like, but cannot buy from normal sources.
I buy the specialty coffee (micro-lots) on behalf of this Co-op.

To cut a long story short, we have surplus beans, as one of the group has moved overseas and cannot take his allotment.

If you are interested in high quality beans (85+ scores), please PM for further details.
I do not want to list specifics here, but the beans are 2016 crops, small batches (micro-lots) and not available from any site sponsor, or green bean retailer. Happy to ship in 1kg lots. Full details via PM.

This is not a business, nor will it ever be. It is a way of sourcing beans that suit our needs and tastes, via a Co-op.

Any questions, queries etc, please do it via PM.

I forgot to add.

I can ship via post, or pickup in Brisbane via mutual agreement.
I send a lot of parcels to family via Officeworks mailman. ($15 for 5kg, $20 for 10kg).

I am overseas from 27th June and return at the end of July 2016.

Any requests for beans can be dealt with this week, or upon my return.

Regards,
Lw.

Just an update.
I am back from overseas.
Thank you to everyone who took up my offer.
I still have some beans on hand if anyone is interested.
I travel a fair bit, and am able to take beans with me (air freight) due to generous baggage allowances. I am in Perth in the first week of October, and will be staying in the CBD. If anyone in WA wants some beans, happy to oblige.
Will be in Melbourne and Adelaide later in October, and Newcastle a bit later.
Cheers.

Sounds great! :thumb:
I have your updated list and interested in anything from the first six listed, priority with the last four maybe.
I can finalise amounts with you when you know your Newcastle trip plans and to work within your "generous baggage allowance".

Just an update.
A special thanks to all who have participated. Your patronage has enabled quite a few hobby roasters to gain access to some excellent beans.
The co-op is still going strong and new members are welcome.
I still have some lovely coffees (Ethiopia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Brazil) with some more on the way.
There is a limited amount of Panama Coffees coming, and I can still add to my order if people are interested.
I also have a Panama Geisha coming.
Please contact me via PM with your email address for more details.

Green bean co-op.

Update.

In general the beans I source are high grade specialty microlots, with very small volumes coming into the country. They tend to be hard to get and interesting at the same time.
I have been asked if I can source some similar beans with a lower price point as a couple of home roasters are increasing their roasting volumes and seek some value base beans to blend with the microlots. There will be a very small amount to spare, but I can increase our order if others are interested. A good PNG is one of them.
If you have any similar requests, please email or PM me and let me know your price point and quality expectation. No question is silly, and I am happy to assist with your needs.
