Bought some green beans from The Greenguys the other day
 http://www.greenguyscoffee.com.au/aboutUs.shtml
I believe they run the business as a hobby, prices are competitive, communication good, shipping a bit slow, I think they take orders one week and ship the next.
Roasted 625 grams of their Tiger Mountain today, will let it degas for a few days then report back. ;)


Cheers,

Indian tiger mountain? It's great  their are buying groups growing in australia. Gives chance for home roaster to taste more coffees, without having to buy whole sack. Then have storage concerns with 60 kg sack
Where were you in crack when finished?
What temp were the beans?
How long roast?
Looking forward to how it tastes

Morning Cherry,
Sorry did not get back to you yesterday, was away for the day.
Roasted to the first few snaps of second crack.
Start temp 15 degree's, first crack13 mins @ 200C, SC @ 19 mins 230C.
Tried them this morning as a long black and must admit I have had much better Tiger Mountain in the past, the pour lacked body and the crema was quite thin and dissipated very quickly compared to previous roasts of TM from another supplier.
The coffee was drinkable but nothing to get excited about.
Will try another batch soon, but if this one is any indication I'm glad I only got 2.5 kilo's of it.  :(
Cheers,

Dry Bean.

Just ordered some green from ministry of grounds for the first time, I have been buying my green from CS for a while but liked the range and prices of the ministry so I thought I would give them a go. So far so good ordered yesterday shipped today.

Cheers

Give it a few more days and the body should increase and the crema become more stable.
Dont expect huge body from it though, it's a low to medium bodied coffee - you could push it into 2nd crack, i've found it works quite well.

Have roasted about 5 kilo's of  TM purchased from another supplier in the past 6 months, with far better results than this batch, in fact it was a favourite, not so this time, perhaps a few more days will help but it will need to improve a heck of a lot.
I'm just about to pull a double ristretto, will report back.

I buy most of my greens from CS as well Brett, must admit the quality is always good, and their service is excellent.
Placed one order from ministry, it was ok though as I recall payment was a bit of a stuff around.

No issues with payment for me, the issue I find with CS is that you cant buy green and roasted of the same bean, also the really good stuff goes in a flash with their monthly offerings, if you are putting the kids to bed its gone. Cant fault their service though it is top notch.

I only buy green Brett so no problem for me there.
Know what you mean re the good stuff going fast, missed out a couple of times early on, now I set up multiple reminders on my Outlook calendar starting the day before and two or three times on the day of the offer, so every time I check my email up pops a reminder, works well for me, don't miss any now, unless of course I'm away from home, mind you don't have distractions (kids) so perhaps I have a small advantage there.
Cheers,

Hmmm, pulled my double, 18 grams of beans, 40 seconds,  only finished up with about 40 ml in the cup, still not up to scratch so adjusted the Mazzer 1 notch coarser and pulled another shot, vast improvement, approx 60 ml in 30 seconds, excellent crema, coffee perhaps just a little thin but this could also improve over the next couple of days.
Much happier with the result now. ;D

Just thought I would put in a plug for the Koffee Kosmo shop
We sell green coffee beans in 1kg Mylar bags
Mylar are the same bags one normally receives roasted coffee in

The green coffee is very reasonably & competitively priced
After roasting one can use the Mylar bag to store the roasted beans in

As beans varieties are sold out they are replaced with new arrivals

This is what's currently on offer
