    In fact, I just saw a hard copy of the Age and the article is from the Epicure section in todays Age which has a feature on the diversiti brought to Australia by the immigrants post WWII.

    Looks like a good feature if you get the chance to look at it. In the article about the roasters, there is a picture of some roasted beans that look like a CS 13.

      CS13 sounds scary!

      Good article after I got over "Melburnians" in the first sentence. I assume that is a Melbournian that burns something maybe to a CS13 level?



      Its also a good little history of Melbourne name coffee over the last 50 years.

      Maria Paoli, of Evolving Success, runs historical coffee tours of Melbourne, walking small groups through the city and into coffee houses such as Pellegrinis, talking about the history of espresso.
      Sounds like something we should suss out for a CS pickup day in the future.

        I have a copy of the "Espresso, Melbourne Coffee Stories" book they refer to in The Gaggia Men article on the opposite page (pg 20). It was a great read (though that was a few years ago now!).

          That was a good read. Of all the people written about, Ive only had the pleasure of meeting Paul Dimattina on several occassions.

            Yeah- It was basically a nice article. Sorta makes me proud that Joe Dimattina was my uncle and my cousins run the present operation.

              heh urm.. there is a funny spelling mistake in this sentence..

              "The coffee dynasty continues with Domenics son, Dino, who runs his own cafe-cum-roastery, Coffee Max, in Camberwell."

              ...

              :

              Yeah I know Im dirty. If Im out of line please just delete this message.

                  Nice try Wushoes, though I think youll find that its not English, but rather, Latin. Then again, I wonder if there is such a thing as an English word apart from youse

                          I have it on good authority that an up-dated version of this book is about to be released: I should know the publisher is my media studies lecturer!

                              Excuse my ignorance...I guess the title of the book gives it away...but what is it about?
