  • Wicked Sunday (Celebrate the Bean) 2009


    Good news CSrs!

    We will be running a home roasting tent at Wicked Sunday (the event formerly known as Celebrate the Bean) again.

    The event will be held at Federation Square, on the banks of the Yarra in Melbourne.


    Wicked Sunday
    Sunday 15th March 2009


    We are looking for some CS’rs to come and roast in the Wicked Sunday tent so if your keen to spend a day making chaff and brown beans on a popper, breadmaker, Hottop, Gene Café or some other whacky roasting device let me know via email.

    There will be a “Home Barista Competition” again and we will do some roasting demos on stage during the day too.

    This is the schedule for the Celebrate the Bean Stage

    10:00 – 10:15 MC Welcome BBC Good Food
    10:15 – 10:45 Tips on making great coffee at home
    10:45 – 11:00 Latte Art Demo I
    11:00 – 12:00 Bean to Cup – William Angliss Coffee Academy
    12:00 – 13:00 HBI Comp part I
    13:00 – 13:45 Home Roasting Demo
    13:45 – 14:45 HBI Comp part II
    14:45 – 15:00 Latte Art Demo II
    15:00 – 15:30 HBI Winners announced
    15:30 - 15:45 MC wrap up BBC Good Food


    Roasters Week
    Monday 16th – Sunday 22nd March 2009


    The following week is going to be called “Roasters Week” and coffee roasters all around Victoria will open their doors to the public for educational sessions, demos and tours.  I don’t know how many roasters will be involved but I have spoken to a few that are keen to get something happening that week and I’m sure the numbers will build.


    The organisers also have an opening for an MC on the day.  If you have a love of all things coffee, enjoy explaining things to a layman and are happy to talk about coffee all day (sounds like most CoffeeSnobs to me!) let me know.


    The event is still 3 months 3 weeks 4 daysaway but we are getting the information up nice and early so that interstate CS’rs that would like to come have plenty of time to plan a trip and grab some cheap airfares.

    Should be a blast!

                    Nice work Chris.
                    Maybe we can all chip-in and buy them back after the event?


                    It should be great fun. If we can help with airport transfers or anything else let me know (via email) and we will make it happen. Of course, the same goes for any interstate CSrs who are coming into Melbourne for that weekend

                      I think I should start selling the idea to Ofra, I may see you there.

                      Cheers

                              is this comp open to anyone ? might be a good stepping stone in competing in the Vics.
