      Gee Andy, I just opened that link to be met with that beautiful pic of Mt Fyffe in Kaikoura.
      A huge rush of Homesickness hit me and I am sitting here bawling. OGs family is from Kaikoura and we havent been back to visit for a while.

      This is the view from the house paddock

              One of the best coffees Ive ever been served, commercially, was in Cathedral Square in Christchurch, from a little caravan operation called “Steve’s caffeine machine”.
              This was while I was over in UnZud for my brothers weeding (the crazy one) at the Heritage, below Mt Cook.

              The coffee at the wedding was good as well, the coffee and the wedding, were at the “Old mountaineer’s café”, but the coffee wasn’t as good as at “Steve’s caffeine machine”.
              I don’t know why I was surprised that the coffee was good in New Zealand, you lot do most foody stuff VERY well indeed.

              I was told that the operation was run by a group of rock climbers who take it in turns to run the barrow while the others were climbing.

              Is this still in operation?
