Im going to be in melbourne next month and as well as picking up my ebay Gaggia, I want to stop in somewhere to get some cleaning chemicals, a tamper and maybe a naked pf. Oh and look at some coffee machines I cant afford. ;)
Obviously, the sponsor list would be a good place to start but its a long list to work my way through. So what Im thinking is Im not the only member who might want to easily find the nearest site sponsor to where they happen to be at the time, any chance you could set up a google map and get the sponsors to all put them selves on and then give it a link from the site?
the question does come-up from time to time and we intentionally avoid pinning any of the sponsors to an area.
Like myself, many of the sponsors are "internet" based and as such will ship items to any corner of the country at a fair price. By far the best way to get a deal from the site sponsors is to send an email to
...with details of where you live and what you want. The site sponsors that can help you will email back to you directly (saving you a lot of time). Those that cannot help will let the email go to the keeper.
You might just find that the very best deal comes from somewhere you wouldn’t have thought of trying if you were just looking at a list of "local" sponsors.
