  • Riverina Hookup?

    Just wanted to see if there are enough like minded snobs who want to travel to Wagga (or already here) a few times a year for a get together? I can promise lots of toys to play with and when I have worked it out a KKTO as well.

    Have a date and a venue in mind but PM if interested with ideas/suggestions/interest.

    Well we have a couple of starters and I am thinking the first Sat in March (6th) not set in stone by any means. Thinking march as the venue might be a bit hot in Jan Feb.

      Ok then Saturday March the 6th seems a goer at the moment, 11am is the proposed kick off time. So we will do a bit of a BBQ for lunch and plenty of coffee.

      My ideas for the day are
      1. KKTO roaster demo
      2. Bring your blend/SO for everyone to try
      3. There will be a chemex, syphon, aeropress, stovetop and a couple of espresso machines to play with.
      4. Some different sized grinders (all flat burr atm)
      5. We can do some semi scientific experiments (eg old beans vs freshly roasted) Any other ideas very welcome

      More ideas to come so if you are thinking about coming you are welcome, the more the merrier.

        Damn--I thought at first glance this was to be in the Italian RIVIERA ;D and it sounded like a really great idea (albeit a bit expensive!)

        Im afraid that Wagga just doesnt have the same attraction for me 8-)

              We can now add a "Technivorm" and a Hottop to the list of toys to play with.

                  Have just finished roasting myself, we will have a fair range of coffee to try and a real diversity in coffee experience coming as well. There is still plenty of room if anyone else is thinking about coming.

                        Gday Brett, John, Russ and wives,
                        Thanks for a terrific day.
                        We got to compare 3 different roasters with the same bean, the interesting thing was how similar a Hottop, Gene Cafe and KK all turned out.
                        Its amazing how little and how much can be achieved on these get togethers. Looking forward to the next one.

                        Thomas ;D ;D

                          Glad you enjoyed it Tom I had a blast and I think everyone else enjoyed themselves too. I felt like a kid in a candy store with $100 in my pocket, so many things to try and so little time. ;D ;D

                          We definitely need to do this again, am offering up the garage again if that suits. I am thinking in 2-3 months time?

                            Brett, Russ, Thomas & Wives,
                            Thanks for the most fantastic Snobs get together in Wagga yesterday. Worth every minute of our 400k - drive there and back.
                            Gob smacking knowledge of home roasting, exchange of all things coffee and roasted beans.
                            The hands on experience with the 3 roasters metioned in tominozs post was great.
                            Meagan and Thomass filter coffee brewers were real eye openers.
                            Thanks to Brett, wife and family for opening their home to 2 complete strangers. We had instant comradory as everyone made us feel so wlecome to a day we will never forget. The BBQ lunch so enjoyable.
                            moto coffee has a fantstic work ethic for his passion of allthings coffee and the set up we used yesterday as you will see in the photos was just awesome.
                            The Affagato with kahlua (for the none- drivers) was a heavenly send off.
                            Thanks moto coffee and fellow snobs so looking forward to our next meeting.
                            Herbie and the Missus. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

                              The photo is Moto (Brett), Ross, Tominoz (Tom) and Herbie (John). BTW not sure how is was just the blokes in the photo as there were 4 other halves and 6 kids running about. ;D.

                              And for anyone interested the second photo is a technovorm (I think that is how it is spelt) brewing some yummy pourover.
