  • Live Home Roasting Demo - Australian Coffee Festival - Cafe Biz 2010

    Hey all,
    Cafe Biz is on next month and again we have the opportunity to do a home roasting demo during the Australian Coffee Festival event on the Sunday.  Fellow CoffeeSnobs site sponsors ECA , Di Bella and Cafetto will be there along with a pile of other food, coffee and industry stands.

    Instead of the Snob Van and a marquee, this year we will be on centre stage for an hour!

    I’m happy to shout the beans, I need some interested CS’rs to jump up on stage with me and "bang-out" some roasts on their roasting gear while I "bang-on" about coffee roasting, the process and the try to explain what the audience is seeing, smelling and hearing.

    Date: Sunday 2nd May
    Time: (to be confirmed, mid afternoon at a guess) 1pm confirmed
    Location:  Royal Randwick Racecourse, Randwick, Sydney.
    Need: You and your roasting gear

    So who’s up for a fun day?
    8-)

          In like... (ok twas a bad joke)

          Yes, the KKTO would be great too, if we can get one of everything then the audience would get a real idea of just how many different devices can roast coffee.

          Yes, you will get free entry and parking as CoffeeSnobs "staff".  Ill have entry tickets closer to the date and will prob just hand them out to you guys on the day.  The same ticket will get you in on the Monday too if you want to come back and see the competitions (Latte Art etc).

                  Great if you can. Behmor would be good, I might take a popper for a someone from the audience to roast on... just to prove how easy it is.

                  Should be fun!

                      Hi Andy,
                      I could do a simple roast or two in my Gene Cafe. No fancy coolers or USB temp data loggers. The simplicity might appeal to some (it works for me!).
                      Andrew.

                        Perfect Andrew, the more the better and I agree that the simplicity will appeal to many.

                        I just want it to be an hour of fun and a showcase of just how great home roasting can be. I dont even know how many people will be watching but with enough roasters maybe we can test the smoke alarms to attract more of an audience. ;-)

                        I think the hour-long demo is on at 12 noon but Ill check this week to make sure.
