  • Beanology 2013 - CafeBiz 2013 - Sydney - 10th and 11th March.

    Wow, it’s that time of year when Australia’s café industry gets together for the biggest café specific trade show in the country, CafeBiz!

    Once again CoffeeSnobs Beanology will be a ticketed event within the CafeBiz show and will give attendees a chance see industry presentations and get involved with hands-on sessions that have proven to be both educational and a whole lot of fun each year.


    The Beanology sessions are duplicated on the two days of the event (Sunday and Monday) so you will only need to sit in on one of the days sessions and you can spend the other day on the trade floor seeing exhibitors and the coffee competitions.

    CoffeeSnobs Beanology 2013

    SUNDAY 10th MARCH – 10am-3pm
    MONDAY 11th MARCH - 10am-3pm
    Australian Technology Park
    Locomotive Street
    Eveleigh NSW 2015


    Tickets are limited for each day as we prefer to keep the group small enough to provide a one to one style of interactive experience.

    Beanology 2013 tickets are for sale in CoffeeSnobs - BeanBay

    (Tickets will not be available at the event)


    Beanology Blend - from bean to brew

    This year's Beanology will start with the humble green coffee bean and analyse the processing, grading and sorting. From screen sizing to moisture content and defects the 5 different coffees will be inspected before roasting them using different profile curves. Each profile will then be tasted and broken down into positive attributes that they could add to a blend. The end result will be the Beanology 2013 blend which will be brewed using different methods to compare the outcomes.





    LOTS OF PRIZES TOO

    Craig Hiron from Otto fame is going to giveaway an Otto to one lucky Beanology Attendee

      Can't make it to Beanology this year but I highly recomment CS'ers go and experience this great event, the seminars and mixing with fellow coffee enthusiasts and also checking out the Cafe Biz displays and competitions makes for a brilliant and highly caffeinated one or two days

        Pity you can't make the cross country trip this year Greenman, I'm pretty sure you were the "furthest travelled" last year!


        I just edited the first post...

        Craig from Otto has offered another Otto to one lucky Beaonology attendee and Greg Pullman has offered 2 of his beautiful tamps, one as a door prize for each Beanology day.

        Craig and Greg will both be at Cafebiz 2013 so you will be able to thank them in person if you win!

          Looking forward to seeing you on the Monday Andy. Hoping you can squeeze the Brazen in the Snobmobile for a peek.

            Good call Dennis, I was talking about that today and the answer is YES, the Brazen will be making the road trip in Snobmobile.
            (and I expect it will on coffee duty in my hotel room each morning which drive the whole hotel floor crazy)

              Andy - I'm assuming the topics will be different to last years?

              Speaking of which, I need to dig up my notes from last years topics... one of the things I remembered from your talk last year was that a bean can have the same shade of brown, but at the end of the day, it's the roast profile that plays the biggest part in taste.

                Hmmm, can you advise us as to what your room number will be Andy ???

                Not sure at this stage if Suze and I can be there. ( even with the chance of winning an Otto!)

                Cheers,

                  For sure, and not just different topics but a whole new format!
                  We had requests for more of the hands-on so we have made the whole day a fun journey from green bean to the cup.

                  Ha! I won't know till I check in. The good news though is that the Brazen will travel with us to Cafe Biz each day so people can have a play there and won't have to cram into my hotel room.

                  Not sure at this stage if Suze and I can be there. ( even with the chance of winning an Otto!)
                  Hope things shuffle around and you can get there... and it's not just an Otto, there is a famous. pretty, admired and desired Pullman tamp to be drawn each day too.

                  I expect Beanology will be a blast and I'm excited to see what a room full of CoffeeSnobs can create in a day.

                  Roll-on March... ROADTRIP!

                    Okay, it's the Pullman tamp that got me!! (A chance to "play" with the Brazen also?)
                    Tickets just purchased and payed for, so here we come!

                    It seems Sue has been displaying her impressive skills on the Expobar Minore whilst I was in India for 6 weeks and has indicated a personal fitted tamper would be very nice.

                    Winning one or purchasing one? Either way she will be returning home with a Pullman.

                    Looking forward to Sunday's offerings and meeting some fellow Snobbers.

                    Cheers,
                    Kevo

                      I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone too.

                      I think the new format will be a really fun way to explore, play and share knowledge.
                      We will know a week from now!

                            The Snob Van is all packed and ready (Craig and I finished filling it about 11pm) and we are heading off in the morning on a ROAD TRIP!

                            If we find any interesting coffee (more interesting than the travelling Bodums we are taking) on the 1000km+ trip we'll post it up .

                            ...and will see everyone either at Beanology or in the CafeBiz trade show area.

                            ;-)
