    Upgrade Complete.....Supreme Roasters

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    Just a short note and a massive Thankyou to Roger. He has single handedly solved my upgraditis for a very, very long time.... :)

    After finding you guys just on 12 months ago, jumping in on the EM6910/048 train and becoming addicted, I have recently jumped up into a New Giotto PP and K3 Elite "WBC Professional Manual" combo. Having no real alternative to buying in my local area it was a scary proposition buying "sight unseen" from south. However in the end Roger assured me it would all be good, and it most certainly was.

    The GPP is gorgeous in the flesh and has exceeded my every expectation. The grinder is magnificent and if I can make a recommendation to anyone out there who is "comfortable" with a doserless and doesnt think a doser is for them or neccessary, at upgrade time re think your position. IMHO you wont regret it...

    The Sunbeam combo served me reasonably well and has now been passed on to the the little bro with the strict instructions to look after and appreciate it, join CSs and read, read ,read and buy good beans. My guess is he will need to talk to Roger in the future..... *;)

    All done now this is it I told myself (and the bride)..... Funnily enough I am looking at the Gene Cafe in the side bar and somehow think my problem is not quite solved yet..... *8-)

    If there are any other members here in North Qld struggling with their "problem" as I was, look no further than Mr Bright at Yatala!

    Cheers. *:)

    Edit: Pic added and hopefully works.

    Russ

    Thank you for the very kind words! It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and look forward to continuing our relationship into 2010! Full credit to you for progressing so far in your technique in so short a time.

    Matter of fact we have a brother/sister (personal interpretation here!) Giotto joining your beauty in Townsville this week! The Townsville CoffeeSnob Giotto club is growing slowly and surely!

    Hey Sambo200,

    Yes we are in Townsville and have just ordered a GPP and an M4.
    I understand the problem of buying unseen with no hands on experience. However, Roger has been very patient and very helpful.

    Just waiting for delivery now.

    Cheers

    GDay Keefy!

    Congrats on the new toy inbound mate, we may have to start a club *;)

    Roger is the man and he will help you through it. I would also only be too happy to compare notes and offer "limited" advice if I can (I am by far an expert) if you would like?
    Just drop me a PM or Roger has my phone number.

    Enjoy the unboxing ceremony, that bit is especially cool...... *8-)

    Roger is a top bloke. No BS, just total dedication and commitment.
    Enjoy the gear - and the coffee it produces. Hope you took the opportunity to sample Rogers blends!
