  • Sydney Coffee Meetup - Saturday 29th August

    Hi Everyone,

    Hazchem and I have taken it upon ourselves to make sure these monthly get-togethers happen, so put aside the last saturday of every month for caffeine-induced conversation and coffee-related mayhem.

    This time round will be @ Hazchems (Aarons) place in St. Peters, which has an outside area/garage.

    Were thinking theres the possibility of

    Roast-off
    Latte art smackdown
    Robur vs K10 grind-off

    if theres enough interest, but were leaning towards keeping stuff fairly informal. Weve also got ideas for things like a signature drink shootout (possibly judged by our significant* others) and

    Alongside a sausage/food sizzle on the BBQ for lunch, to prevent the "oops, 5.30pm and I havent eaten all day" problem.

    Hazchems Miss Silvia wont have enough grunt to get through the day, so if youd like to show and tell with your HX or DB, say so in the replies - otherwise youll get stuck with a galatea or domobar super again!

    Confirmed so far:

    Identity
    Lisa
    Hazchem

    PM Hazchem or I for the address - its about a 2 min walk from the nearest bus stop on the Princes Highway & the closest station is Sydenham. NB: If youre stranded close (for transport, or just lost), Im sure someone will be able to come and find you!

    Well, Ill be there for sure ;D ;D

    As John mentioned, PM either of us for address details. Partners and kids are most welcome!

    No need to bring anything for the Sausage Sizzle unless you feel inclined.

    Also happy to hear from you what youd like to see happen at this or any future meetups.

    Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday 29th! 8-) ;D

      Great idea, and I will try to get to as many as I can. It is my daughters 3rd Birthday party on the 29th so I wont make this time around. Would be happy to host one down the track as well.

      I am sure it will be a great day.

      Brett

      Ps. who has the Robur to have the comparison with?

        Grant - not sure if hes in Sydney but he mentioned bringing it to the last meet - and if we didnt snare him last time.....!

        Were hoping to keep mixing the venues up as long as they work for a few people, so your offer to host is appreciated!

        Also this:

          the last friday of every month
          The Friday bit confuses me ?



          What time you going to kick off this one?

          i have to do a airport pickup of the wife in the arvo of 29th so St Peters is "on the way" . Would have to bring my 2 year old along, but she knows her way around a coffee machine.

          Might be able to bring the Brugnetti for something diff? It needs a plumbed in tap of some sort, i have a few hoses.
          See what others might bring 1st to see if its worth it as it would be a bit of a challenge / drama.

          I have the rossi RR45 flat burr so could bring that easy

          I will put my hand up to host soon once we are in the new place in Mosman and settled a bit.

          I need to confirm flight times 1st but, so put me on the maybe list for now.

          Roast off would be good, i need to see some beans roasting by someone who knows what they are doing........

            leeham, Im about 5 minutes from the domestic terminal, a bit more from international.

            When I travel domestic, I send Kathryn a text when I land, she leaves the house then to pick me up and generally were out the front of the terminal at the same time, sometimes she beats me there.

              Haha so true! I got home from Round 1, then spent the next 5 hours playing with the old machine in the garage - got to 10PM and I realised I hadnt eaten lunch! I think my stomach began eating itself

              Any way, disappointed I cant make this one, but count me in for Round 3!

                      Ill have to check with my social secretary to see if therea a vacancy on my calendar.

                      I might bring the Expobar Leva along and if I clean up the Rossi Ill bring that too as youve all seen a Macap.

                      Does anyone want me to bring the Sunbeam EM0450?

                        Hey ID

                        Possibly but 2 factors - I could be working on weekends shortly and we are hillbillies ;D - No we live out in the Hills area.

                        6 days fast camel ride to you inner city dwellers

                        We recently had a similar affair here, utilising a beanbay pick up (which is us) to make the same excuse. Having the roast off certainly gives the get together depth. Small but wasnt advertised either.

                        Successful enough that the participants want to keep it going at future beanbay pick ups.

                        We will see how we go. You and I had better organise not to clash ;D

                          i hear a couple of people may be coming down from the Central Coast, so dont think of Kellyville as being so far away! speaking for myself - I dont home roast so theres not much point me turning up to a beanbay pickup atm, but if we end up with fortnightly meetups etc Ill still make all the ones I can.

                            John, Im in Melbourne atm but does sound good. I think Ill be back for that.

                            CK, Kellyville is just up the road so keep me informed

                              Ch, ID, Im confused

                              Anyway as I said John my bigger issue is the likelyhood of weekend work . Still, work is work.

                              We have been keeping an eye on the thread though, dont worry about that.

                              Hey Grant, for sure, pretty much had worked out you were local. All good clean (chaffy) fun.

                              But if you want to sit that Robur next to my poor little Sunbeam... ;D
