    PICKUP POINTS - Dec 2009

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Pickup Points

    QLD - Veneziano - West End
    NSW - Real Coffee – Newcastle
    NSW - "cksyd" - Kellyville
    NSW - Cuppacoffee - Sylvania
    NSW - Coffee Parts – Pagewood
    ACT - "Cruiserman" – Calwell
    VIC - Veneziano *- Abbotsford (12/12/09 10:30-11:30)
    TAS - "Alistair1" - Launceston
    TAS - "rayzurhed" – Burnie
    TAS - "ParaM" – Hobart
    SA - The Coffee Barun - Sefton Park
    WA - "Caffeinefreak" – Wembley

    We hope to get beans to the pickup points by:
    19/12/2009
    (maybe earlier)

    This delivery date is a best guess as we are often at the whim of couriers around the country. *Generally when the beans arrive at the pickup point someone will post in this thread to let you know the time/date that you should meet for the pickup.

    We will also post courier tracking info in this thread so you can see the beans moving around the country.

    Feel free to discuss pickup point pickups and get togethers in this thread.
    8-)

    Re: PICKUP POINTS - Dec 2009

    Seems like the right spot to ask...

    As this is my first pickup point collection I was just wondering what Id need to present to the lads at Veneziano for them to be able to handover my order. Presume it would be a print out of the order from BeanBay but confirmation of that would be super.

    Failing that I could just wander in, grab a coffee, chillout and figure it out on the fly. :)

    No, it s not to early, if you want to have a drink instead of, or in addition to a coffee *8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) you are welcome to bring something ;) Sue will bake biscuits - should make Greenman happy ;D

    Even if you do not have beans to pick up this month you are welcome to drop in ! 11 people have beans to pickup this month.

    I have just roasted up some Tanzania Rononi for Sunday and NO its not been french roasted :( , thanks Andy

    Look forward to the Xmas get together and it would be nice if those extra special beans that I have been storing *:( were gone for Xmas ;) ;)

    ditto GM what a cack! I might have to speak to Simon and Sue about their poor time keeping - it was 1pm by the time we left - so much for 10.30 - 11.30. ;D ;D ;D
    Had my snooze now and all is good.

    Thanks mate for your wisdom!

    See you all next year - take care over the crazy season
