    PICKUP POINTS - Jan 2010

    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 (16/1/10 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:
    23/1/2010
    (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.

    After we ship 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 plan the social get togethers (eg: who is bringing cake) in this thread.

    Re: PICKUP POINTS - Kellyville Pick up & General Get Together

    Hey guys n gals,

    Anyone who has (or hasnt) beans to pick up from Kellyville this month, we are arranging a get together on -

    Sunday, 24 January 2010 at around 12.30-1.00pm kick off

    until whenever... *;D

    The usual stuff will happen with coffee, other drinks, food etc and hopefully plenty of camaraderie.

    This time will see another roast off, but included for 2010 will be a Behmor and one of the very rare KKTO beta roasters *:o

    So we are hoping the roaster list will be -

    Popper *(me, or anyone else with a modded one)
    Corretto (ml27 I hope, as mine is kinda cactus)
    Gene *(ajayro if he is listening, or hazchem if hes not hungover *;D)
    Hottop (topshot)
    Behmor *(me)
    KKTO beta roaster (flynn_aus)

    If someone could bring along 24 to 26 degrees Celsius and low humidity that would be fantastic *:)

    So far confirmed are flynn_aus, topshot and a mate from work who just joined and got one of the remaining Behmors.

    If you are reading and dont have beans arriving, thats fine, you are all more than welcome.

    Why not bring some beans along and have them Behmored or KKTOd out of curiosity? Steve, Warren and myself have been known to stand around and roast so long as people will take the roasted beans *;D.
    Andrew is pretty much the same.

    If you are new to or curious about roasting, this is a great chance to see up to 6 variations of backyard/home roasters in action. And have a beer *;)

    So, a good crowd would make it plenty of fun.

    Please let us know either through this thread, or via PM so that we can cater for everyone.

    Cheers

    Chris n Natalie

    ps: I may copy this into the Social Snobs area to ensure coverage... Mods??

    I think we can move the whole thread there...
    (I was torn between BeanBay-banter Social Snobs when I posted it anyway)

    Sounds like a great day out and a great way to kick off a snobby social new year.

    Re: PICKUP POINTS - Jan 2010

    Update on Kellyville this Sunday.

    So far we have:

    flynn_aus
    topshot
    Pavoniboy
    ml27
    coley12 (Dan, my mate from work)

    Possibly:

    skycam


    We will have definitely 2, possibly 3 Behmors (if Pavoniboy brings his) as well as a KKTO Beta version.

    As it is older hands I will tell the others not to worry about Correttos, Genes, Hottops etc... 4 roaster should be enough...

    I have a couple of orders here from new people who I havent heard from yet as well.

    BUT,

    If you are reading this and free, join in. Loads of fun.

    Sunday will be mid 20s as well (happy days) 8-)

    Chris

    I did the sneaky sneaky early pick up gm 8-)

    I was working and gave Simon the heads up for a drive by. My timing was a little off as Sue was just finishing the gingers other wise I might have hid them from you all....In my stomach ;D

    Unfortunately some customers who order their broadband installs on a Saturday are none the wiser about our very important BeanBay pick ups - how rude! >:( Which forced me to smash and grab....so to speak

    Yeah thanks CF for hosting the pickup, always good to chat in a relaxed environment. I do not normally like ginger unless in a stirfry or something savoury but I must admit the bikkies were nice. Thanks Sue.
    GM the Coretto Almonds were also nice, nice blueberry aroma off the grinder, bright citrus notes....... ;D ;D ;D
