  • Mt Tamborine Coffee Plantation - A day trip for snobs!

    Hello all,
    Back in October last year, a few of us decided it wouldnt be a bad idea to do a day trip down to Tamborine Mountain to visit the Mt Tamborine Coffee Plantation run by Kees van Rijssen the original thread is here, i myself havent seen a working coffee plantation in the flesh, and i gotta say, im pretty keen im going to drop him an email to see what we can organise, but at this stage lets toss up some dates......any thoughts?

    More info to follow..........


    Cheers

    Id love to go, Warren - if we could make it for some time in late March onwards, though, that would be great for me.  Petes away in America for the next six weeks, so Im flying solo with the kids at the moment.

    However, if everyone comes back and wants to make a date before that, Ill live with it... (*sigh* matyrdom is such a lonely beast!)  :

    Cheers

      There there Di, have a tissue and a lie down ;D get down off your burning pyre and have a coffee instead.

      Give me a chance to check the footy schedules Warren, now the season has started I work a second job at the footy so want to make sure I have a day free. Plus I am going to probably need a lift if possible, my missus wont give up the car for a day for me to go visit A coffee plantation.

        I caught up with teh NEW Kees (Had a hair cut) at teh Barista comp..

        Nearly killed me in a Bear hug and stated it was good to catch up with another over the top mad CSs ;D

        Count me in..

        He has restricted hrs for many reasons and for me... Week days can be a pain..

        But am happy to see what I can manage with some notice... The other option might be a CS special day... Plantation etc but not have his lovley wife working in teh kitchen etc..

        Any way.. 2m of mulch, 1m of sandstone rocks and 300 bricks have arrived and I have to get some work done before my wife takes me out ?? Dont know what for

          nah i think youve missed out on enough brissie events Di!, so well make a tentative estimate of Mid to late march?....
          come to think of it, im pretty restricted for weekends myself in my current job, i can only make 14th March :-? so if you cant make that date itll have to be April sometime......

            Hi Warren - thats exactly a week before Pete gets home (he gets back on the 21st)! :-[

            You guys go, though, if the majority rules that that day works, and Ill just catch up at the next one.

            Id still come and bring the kidlets, but Id spend so much time keeping an eye out for them that I wouldnt get full enjoyment out of the day like I would if I was alone, or Pete was with me to share some of the kiddie herding.

            Otherwise, any time after the 21st is good for me and Id clear my calendar accordingly!



            Cheers

              Nooooo...shift change at work means weekends are out for me for the 6 to 8 weeks.

              Mind if I join ya in the martyrdom pit there Di? ;D Can wallow in self pity, get a soft bellied shrink to diagnose me with depression, and fill to the gills with pills. Hey, Im a poet and I didnt even knoet. 8-)

              May have to do a day trip down there one Tues or Wed once shift changes, if anyone wants to tag along.

                      Thanks Warren - I could definitely get a week day off with a bit of notice - Id just take an annual leave day so its no real biggie there. Probably Pete couldnt be there if this was the case, though. Hed probably happily come along on a weekend, though, Id say and we can start educating the kids in Herbazu Horticulture!

                      Nothings planned at this stage for April at all on my side, so Im happy to work in with whatever there, so just pick a date and Ill make sure I clear our calendar accordingly (by hook or by crook!)

                      Phew, glad you were there in the burning pyre with me MP - my eyebrows were starting to get singed! ;D

                      Cheers

                              Depending on when it is and if I can get the day off work if its mid week or if I can negotiate with the family on the weekend Id like to come.
