  • Perth CS Gathering 10:30 Saturday October 8th - Woodvale

    The last gathering went quite well I thought and with Christmas coming up, I thought a few more gatherings this side of Christmas would be good. January is pretty well out as people are away on holiday.

    I think that there is a limit to how much coffee can be consumed in one gathering. I was worried that some people might drink too much espresso and get speeding tickets on the way home!

    The last time we got two coffees from Leaf Bean Machine with the rest supplied by invitees. I'm open to suggestions but I think 4 coffees in total is the maximum we should attempt.

    Getting people to bring something chocolate is a good idea although again I don't think everyone should bring something, just if you don't mind bringing something, let me know.

      Hi Trevor,

      Sounds good. Grind your coffee first too as my grinder is set for espresso.

      Cheers,

        Apologies - I'll be a no-show due to other commitments.

              I will bring some mocha brownies, this time with more espresso!!

              Looking forward to it.

                Please add one to the list.

                Do you have any requests as to what I bring? I suggest one of my Rommelsbachers (auto moka extraordinaire) to see how it compares to greenman's siphon (same roast & grind would work). Also, I may be able to exhume my old "chemical stirrer / modded plunger" which would also be able to run the same roast / grind (it needs finer than usual plunger grinds).

                I look forward to that! As discussed, I have never had a siphon made by someone who really knows what they are doing... Regards.

                  Hockey season over so I should be able to make it. Fyi son got fairest and best and the top goal scorer for the entire league and by a fair margin no less. Yes it was a proud Dad moment.

                  I'll bring some cold brew if anyone is interested.

                    Excellent. The brownies were exceptional. Between that and the Black Russian loaf, that Arron brought, it was a real treat last time. Loved it.

                      It is great when the kids find something that they do really well at. It is a positive in their lives. We have the grandies. One is great at OzKick, the other one not but they're all different.

                      I don't think anything alcoholic as it is too early in the day but anything non-alcoholic is fine.

                            It looks like it will be a good gathering come this Saturday at 10:30.

                            I have the following people who said that they will come...

                            lemoo

                            It is a good number and anyone else who wishes to come along just let me know.

                            Andy has provided a bag of a Mystery Bean to help us along. I wonder what it is?

                            Thank you Andy for your support of our gatherings here in the far West.

                              Am afraid I cant make it again this time around due to work commitments, as much as I would have liked to attend and catch up again with the veteran snobs.

                              Have a good one, and no speeding from excess consumption please.
