  • Sydney Meetup / Coffee Crawl- Sat 25/07/09

    Not sure when the last sydney meetup/coffee crawl was, but does anyone have any interest in getting together for a coffee consumption / taste-off session or similar? Was thinking that the last one went very well, but the crawl part can be a bit exhausting. If we got some single origins + a few machines to a spot in the city (possibly my office) and did some tastings etc, got some sandwiches delivered........

    Thinking a saturday 10-4 thing....anyone interested?

      Friday night is a bit too much short notice for me but I would be interested. From a quick search of CS am I correct that the last meetup was actually a roast-off organised or coordinated by Dennis of Cuppacoffee? If so, is this the intended format for the one youre proposing, Id?

            Okay,

            If we were to say next saturday 11th July, who could actually make it?

            If I can get a lift from Ashfield to Chippendale, I can bring the Galatea + Macap M4 and put them alongside a VDM Domobar Super + ECA KS.

            can anyone else bring a machine? or a syphon?

            /me looks at yeeza hopefully

            .........we could get half a dozen blends together and do blind tastings, or run single origins, do extraction/latte work or just sit around drinking and chatting about coffee. Im happy to chuck in $20-30 of beans, but we may need more to make the day work well - I suggest that we use it as a mix and match opportunity. Perhaps one of the sponsors wants to pop down with some single origins?

            As more people are interested and confirm interest, well get the shape of the day more sorted out.

            (My office is on Myrtle Street, Chippendale, which is directly round the corner from Tobys Estate on City Road - and has enough space for...up to 20 people at a push!). Probably wed have a wet area and a dry area as unfortunately its not an open space like denniss old warehouse! however, it does have the advantage of being very close to the CBD.

                  not sure what day is better for me? :-?

                  whats car parking like at the proposed venue?

                  can / could bring
                  brasilia grinder (rocky sized thing)
                  rossy RR45 grinder
                  and the Brasilia Lady  (silvia sized)
