    New cafe

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Gday all,
    I just had a phone call from my lovely bride to be with some news that she thought I might find interesting.
    One of the shops around the corner from where I work has been vacant for a few months, it used to be a bike shop.
    Ive just been told that therell be a new cafe, and that theyre going to be doing their own roasting.
    I dont know if theyll have one of those counter top jobbies, or a gigantor roaster out the back.
    Either way, as Big Kev would say, Im excited. ;D
    I will, of course, give them a thorough testing and review.
    Cant wait.

    Thanks Juls,
    I dont expect miracles, but the owner of the shop was given a rap by a visiting colleague. He said that their coffee was a notch above that of another semi-local roaster, whose products I quite enjoy. He is friends with the owner though, so its a bit of a biased opinion.
    Im living by a principle passed on to me by avery wise man.

    He who expects little in life is seldom dissapointed. ;D

    Ive been peeking through the window at the fit out taking place, my BTB slows down as we drive past it so I can have a better look :-[.
    It appears that the initial thougts of this place being a cafe were a bit off. It has a sign on the door which indicates that its going to sell and service coffee equipment. It also says that its opening soon, but no date yet :(

    Re: New cafe

    This new place finally opened about 3 weeks ago, I know Ive been slack waiting this long :-[.
    It would seem that my initial thoughts about it being a cafe were a bit wide of the mark ::).
    The shop sells coffee machines and accessories, roasted beans, services coffee machines, and last but not least, sells cups of coffee.
    I had a chat with the owner, Graham, about most things coffee, particularly my home roasting set up. I dont know if he was impressed that I had more of a green bean stash than him, or if he thought I was mad ;D.
    He was telling me about one of his blends which he wont sell to a lot of the shops in the area, reason being their machine cleaning habits leave a lot to be desired, and that would make the coffee taste bad. I like his thinking.
    He roasts on the premises using a counter top roaster which looks like a glass popper. I know the name of the company supplying it, but wont name it.
    He is a service/warranty agent for Expobar, Saeco and ECM, possibly others.
    Overall, its a great little shop and well worth popping in for a look.
