  • Coffee for a Cause - Fundraiser



    Well Monday was the big roast day, the orders had proliferated to over 60kg of roasted coffee which meant that we needed to roast 80kg of green beans to make the orders up.

    Roasting took 2 and a half hours and I have the full story here: http://cafe-grendel.blogspot.com/200...ri-coffee.html, but here are some photos from the day with coffee snobs included.

              This was half of the total boxes of coffee - the car, the house, my clothes, our children - all a loverly caramel coffee aroma!

                All up it should raise about $1800 and this is 6 times my initial goal - but a much more useful amount. It could never have grown to this point without the help of Andy and the CS mods and the generous donations of beans from ym fellow coffeesnobs. MatthewG in particular provided a very generous gift of beans (and the $50 postage to ship them) which really boosted the total amount - our roaster Kamran also donated 25kg of top quality beans to help us meet the avalanche of orders - it was amazing all round so thank you all for your help.

                I am particularly grateful to CSers Tanghy and Chris002200 who arrived to help pack the beans and cut an 8 hour job to a 2 hour job.

                      Shipping all those anonymous black bags in my car on the way home I was actually hoping the police would pull me over. I knew that smell would taunt them the rest of the night. . .

                              Hey Grendel, you did a good job mate.

                              The beans were great and roasted to perfection. Enjoyed them over the weekend just gone.
