    Talk Coffee Melbourne soft opening

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Alrighty all,

    There is finally something to look at in the new Talk Coffee shed!

    Ill be heading in early tomorrow to do a major dustectomy and get some machines and grinders up onto the makeshift benches while we wait for the last of the fitout bits to fall into place...

    Nevertheless, there will be coffee, machines, music, more dust ::) and the beginning of a new space.

    Alas, the Faema is still in crate- but we hope it will be comissioned next week...The roaster will arrive (hopefully) before Christmas...

    This is an open invite for CSers whod like a look to pop in, pull a shot or two and see us in pre-opening phase...

    If you get lost, 0401 679478 will get me and bring some directions your way ;)

    Where?
    Factory 13/146-148 Arthurton Rd
    Northcote 3070

    When?
    12pm-2pm


    Chris

    Well be open next weekend as well Mal for those whod like to pop in for another shot after the Veneziano bean pick up.

    Hopefully the cart and Faema will be up and running by then as well. The roaster will be closer to christmas and most ikely no comissioned until January.

    Re: Talk Coffee is open after bean collection

    For those who are collecting beans at Veneziano in the morning, the Talk Coffee shed will be open from 11.30 for a couple of hours or so if you feel like a drive...

    We have a heap of machines on the bench and the Faema has finally emerged from its crate as well. Sadly, we are not quite there yet. A K10WBC arrived today to keep it company and it will be hooked up on Wednesday....

    There will be coffee, machines, music, dust and a space which is starting to look habitable..

    Come and view the space where the roaster will be ::)...hopefully, before Christmas...

    This is an open invite for CSers whod like a look to pop in, pull a shot or two and see where we are at...

    If you get lost, 0401 679478 will get me and bring some directions your way ;)

    Where?
    Factory 13/146-148 Arthurton Rd
    Northcote 3070

    When?
    11.30am til 1.30pm or so...

    Congrats on the "new shed" Chris!

    I wont be able to come by and have a peek tomorrow unfortunately. :(

    Yes mlaich,

    Were in one of the new factories next to the storage mob. Given weve been open on the site for a while now and that only the roaster is to arrive, it might be time to ask the mods to lock down this thread though ;)
