  • Perth Bean Collection Point

    JavaB and myself met at Epic today and I received my beans from the latest poll (yay JavaB and Andy)

    We discussed the possibility of using Epic as a drop-off point for the green beans and a collection point for Perth and WA CSrs.

    Corey is supportive of the idea and it would mean lower freight costs once we sort out a decent freight company (open to ideas here).

    Any takers?

          And with the solar theres no need to stop to make your java, you can do it on the fly! Sounds like a reasonable length road trip to me! : 8-) ;D

              But with all those green beans.....

              You would have to stop and roast some.... or on the go????

              Maybe a roasting drum next to the engine exhaust.... Now if we cut a hole in the floor pan ;D

              No Dear, its just additional air conditioning

                  I wonder if the aircon compressor can produce 9 Bar of water pressure.... (who needs aircon when you could have coffee? ;D)

                  A heat exchanger in the radiator..... install a group assembly on the dash.... :

                  Now how do we froth the milk???

                      What about the magic Presso for the coffee? That will leave the ciggy lighter for some other appliance... blender or something.

                        I would like to volunteer for the road trip from Melb to Perth
                        Sounds like too much fun to miss out on, love the ideas proposed so far
                        Sorry Ox, Im thinking, yep brain is hurting, Presso isnt going to cut it when we have all these other great ideas percolating around

                        So Java- its the Javamobile-phile are we going to see some of the ideas percolating around this thread being incorporated into your van ;D ;D ;D

                        Why stop at a cafe, when you can take your own, odd really.

                            Anything is possible. ;D :

                            Until then Ill just have to live with my current on the fly solution, CP! Pre-mixed with milk in liter bottles kept on ice in a handy esky (Hows that thundergod? Better? ;D). On long trips Ill bring along as many liters of straight CP as I think Ill need in a larger esky to mix up along the way.
