    All I want for Christmas is....

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    WooHoo.... we just managed to snare the only two bags of Yemen Ismail in the country (and they will be the last ones till the next crop about Easter).

    I have cupped this and it is most excellent (errr... as expected) and others in the industry have earmarked this seasons crop to the be the best for years.

    Price? Not cheap but at just over $24 its still priced under most stale supermarket coffees ;)

    This will go up on the next poll (if I dont drink it all first) ;D

    Ive probably got enough beans for a while so will ask the big bloke in red to see if he can deliver a 58mm tamp, blind basket and milk thermometer.

    Simple I know but I guess these are essential tools. What id really like to find under the tree is a PID for the Silvia. Not much chance of that happening though - maybe next year!

    Yep, Im with you Luca... in fact I look like scrooge mc duck sitting in the middle of a bag of Ismaili throwing it into the air ;)

    TimA... Im really hoping to get hold the Peru that we cupped. *It is one of the best coffees Ive had this year... and maybe a really good Kenya AA and prob some black china tea too.

    There is a lot of great stock filtering through after the delay in shipping (Oz customs and hurricane freight issues) but it is still taking some time to clear the backlog.

    The real problem is that after drinking the Yemen everything else is *a little thin/pale/disinteresting...

    sigh... its tough being a snob. ;)

    Hey luca,
    Iím with ya! Did you see the futurama episode where Fry spends his $300 from the govt on 100 cups of coffee?.... I love that one... his hummingbird impersonation is just how I feel after a Perth cafe day!
    Cheers,
    Matt

    PS Nice work Andy!

    Sounds great Andy - I look forward to experiencing a famed coffeesnobs poll, especially if it includes some sought after yemeni beans!

    Matt- that episode of futurama is classic. When fry saves everyone in the burning museum thing..... phenomenal piece of animation.

    Dominican... wet and wind processed

    (but finding enough of the beans to fill a bag is tough job!)
