  • Olympic Village

    Sadly, the best coffee in the Olympic Village this year is at McDonald's.

    Hmmmm.... methinks there is an opportunity for something along the lines of a "Hero Fax"
    How about, an IOC? An Intervention by Obsessed Coffeesnobs?

      Tragic. We'll add an aeropress/hario/coava combo to FB's offer.

        Careful - can't you be arrested for possession of non-sponsor products.

              Sending beans roasted by an Australian to the Olympic Village in London is very patriotic.
              However, given that London has many quality roasters, delivery overnight of quality fresh beans is a very easy exercise. One that springs to mind used to live in our neck of the ocean. They also specialise in Levers.

                Funny, I was just talking about TopShot yesterday wondering how he was going.
                My son is doing a school project on Olympians and he remembered Warren's medal winning performance from the Beijing games... so that's who he picked. He's counting down the days till Aug 3rd when Warren competes.

                Coffee? I doubt we can get anything across fast enough to be worthwhile but I could source something good in the UK.
                I'll get something moving today.

                Good luck Top Shot!

                  Cool. Many thanks Andy.

                  And good luck to Warren (and all our other athletes, even if they don't like coffee!)

                  @Bosco - Fair point!

                    All sorted!
                    Clever dripper, filters and 5 specialty coffees are on the way.
                    (shipping from Has Bean Steve)

                    Warren thought that security might be a problem but I'm guessing most of the poms are tea drinkers so there is less chance of security keeping it.


                    The place must a buzz already... enjoy every minute of your trip TopShot.

                              Firing (sic) a question from a .50 Barrett at ya Warren, does drinking coffee help with keeping a steady hand or does it do the opposite?

                              Do you have a time table you could share with us so we can tune in?

                              May your aim be straight and true.
