ill be coming off night shift, ill drop in though for a few hours before bed time ;D
On ya Di ;)
AM has nicely agreed to provide the location (his place), so Ive decided that Sunday 6th June 2010 is the go and its a goer with Mrs AM!
Come one, come all!
Ill bring my GeneCafe and some greens (might even sacrifice the last 300g of my JBM to the CS Brizzy-Ites to taste) and Im going to bring along something made with my shiny new kitchen bling...my new Kitchenaid Mixer. Thinking I might try my hand at little individual Tiramasus for everyone, but Ill have to severely practise beforehand so I dont embarass myself! ;)
Who else is in?
ill be coming off night shift, ill drop in though for a few hours before bed time ;D
On ya Di ;)
Considering this... http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1262756782/143#143Originally Posted by 1E1A3C2525203F2827490 link=1273567885/1#1 date=1273573112
I guess ya want it sooner rather than later..... ;D
Have some shade... A table or two...
1: Klub T2 may or may not be around... 200470874455 is the key
2: An EM69AMB or two maybe
4: BCF Junior... With permission of the new owner
5: Unico Spendor and MaCap grinder
6: Mega tester
7: Sand blaster and messy workshop
And of course a a crappy camera...
So feel free to drop around... I guess an exact time TBA.
Address.... Head south on Kent Rd and look for teh www.Coffeesnobs.com on teh roof... A bit faded but still visible... If someone has 2 cans of road/line marking spray cans; then I can touch it up so the nubs do not get lost ;D
Im you dont mind an invasion by a sunny coaster I would love to pop in and meet a few of ya if I can get down to brissy.
I will bring along my element for testing with No.6 AM, and some treats too. You really should start a business with all that coffee equipment AM... :)

NOOOoooooooo * Service support maybe.....
If my current job falls over in about 6 months (good chance) I will take a 50 - 60% cut in wages and take a job with an appliance company and do basic bench repairs.
Ya element and any thing else coffee;*is welcome...
If any one has a request for something special... The sooner they speak up the better ;D
So if ya get here before hand... The social snobs will not get to see it before it leaves ;)Gday AM,
Im intending to pickup in person.
Ive floated the idea past the boss (the real boss ;D) and she likes the idea of a holiday up north.
My work boss has said that a week off will be no problem :)
So its all go!
If ya arriving after teh said event...
Are you OK with it being on show / demo for those that might like to have a look ???
Its your machine and thus your call.
PS. Ya need any thing when ya up here etc... Just hive us a PM and a heads up before hand..
Could even spare a Room.... Bugger did I say that... I would need to tidy it first 8-)
I wont get there until after the social event :(Originally Posted by 58777E7C6B547877787E7C747C776D190 link=1273567885/5#5 date=1273732603
Theres no problem with the diadema being on show :)
Thankyou for the offer of a room but we have friends at Yerongpilly that will insist we stay with them 8-)
I am pretty sure I can make it to the Brisbane CS Get Together
What shall I bring ??
Only a work related emergency will keep me from attending
Ill *probably* be there pending children etc.
Actually, therein lies a question...AM, are *reasonably* well behaved children welcome along? I can either leave the children at home and come myself, or bring Pete and the kidlets wtih me - that is entirely up to you and Mrs AM and whether your house is survive an onslaught of little ones running around?
Im giving the Tiramisus a trail run this weekend...yum!!! Ive just got to find some Masala today - went to a bottlo yesterday and they didnt have any! :-?
Billy lids... *Go great on toast of a morning with a strong black ?Originally Posted by 53746270681B0 link=1273567885/9#9 date=1273874626
So what are you really saying - Is it Pete or the Kids *;)
I dont have a problem... Do others - Tough suck of an old dried sav.
In addition, it is only 100Yards to a Park and playground equipment OR I can string some 240V wires and they can play dont touch the live one *:D
No comment on the grounds that anything I say or do may incriminate me!!! ;DOriginally Posted by 6E41484A5D624E414E484A424A415B2F0 link=1273567885/10#10 date=1273875228
I like that game - might have to try it out for a start and see if its age appropriate...hows your public liability looking: I might end up being able to afford me an Alex Izzo after all! :)
Na... it will be a sponsor or another so called service person that gets the live one *;)Originally Posted by 153224362E5D0 link=1273567885/11#11 date=1273875823
LEAVING for the Vs in 10min.. Daughter slept in...
Thanks for bringing this to my attention KK and AM! I had a quick read through and noticed that time for event is TBA. Has this been decided?
And can I confirm that fairly well behaved kids (2 and 4) are ok to come (though the idea of a playground 100 yds away sounds good!)?
Any CSér and or person with a strong need to meet like minded people should be OK / Safe ;DOriginally Posted by 20272C232C2624232B362A420 link=1273567885/13#13 date=1274223332
Kids will be kids and there is a separate toilet and even a TV downstairs... Pleasant kids with manners are always welcome... For that matter, it goes for Adults as well.
I am teh only one allowed to toss a tanty.
We are talking coffee and some may have machines / roasters etc RUNNING... This will suggest that there will be hot things, other than their owners, present.
I have to say that while my public liability and house insurance is current.. I and others present can and will not, take on full responsibility of looking after any ones children or lost and despondent other halves.
It has been decided and added to the titleOriginally Posted by 64636867686260676F726E060 link=1273567885/13#13 date=1274223332
Brisbane CS Get Together - Sunday 6 June 2010
A TIME ... A time to start..Originally Posted by 1F3B323231310B1F3B27393B540 link=1273567885/15#15 date=1274228894
Any one front up at 6:00am and they will get a dose of what for and maybe even a projectile of sorts....
Coffee2di4 - How about you set the start time *:D
Pete wakes you with love and packs the car.. You alight from teh bed and met with a perfect flat white and a fresh fruit compote... *I guess about 1hr from bevensvill *;) and that puts ya here about 10:30 - 11:00 ish ???? * YOUR CALL *;)
PS. I can have the BBQ ready, so if over lunch time.. A few snags and bread and ya done.
PPS. Bring ya own ! * That means *milk and other stuff.. *Especially if ya have any special dietary needs.
PPPS. I will get ICE.
PPPS. Mr Wsully yet to provide my deserts...
I wish!!!Originally Posted by 725D5456417E525D5254565E565D47330 link=1273567885/16#16 date=1274229317
Suffice to say, lets make it from 11.00am until 2.00pm or so - Ill leave Bevensville ;D around 10.00am or so with the following:-
- Maver HX;
- Macap M5;
- Demeral Tamper;
- 2L Full Cream Milk; and
- Approximately 12-15 Individual Tiramisus, depending on crowd size. Ill try to make some kidlet appropriate ones also (ie; little jelly/biscotti/marscapone equivalents - just trying to work out what I can soak the biscuits in instead of espresso and marsala...any suggestions welcome!)
Hot chocolate with coconut essence?Originally Posted by 002731233B480 link=1273567885/17#17 date=1274237742
Sounds like you guys are in for a great day! :)
Thats OK Di... Have contacted Border Control and you have been given clearance...Originally Posted by 446375677F0C0 link=1273567885/17#17 date=1274237742
Wsully will have to dump his Car and fancy new shoes :-)
See this clip for more INFO:
Ill see your helicopter and raise you a Super Hornet, AM!!!
Just to sweeten the deal everyone (so to speak...), here is a photo of the Tiramisus prepared today for trial.
Just to give you a hint, and to make your mouth severely water, Baileys went into the Marscapone and Cream and Marsala went into the Espresso Mixture (the last of my Herbazu :( ), and Double Dutch Cocoa was used between each layer. :D
So, what do you get when you put a relaxant with a energiser??? Bloody beautiful - have yet to try them tonight but suffice to say, the marscapone mixture was trialed and the bowl was cleaned within an inch of its life. Still contemplating whether the kids should have one each but, if worst comes to worst, theyll either probably sleep well or be up until midnight partying! ;D

mmmm ..... ok, youve won me - pending transport issues (car recently broke down) .. Im in.
Anyone traveling up from the G.Coast?
Man - Ill bring the Biltong again OKays?
Sounds good, Springbok!
Update on the Tiramisus - absolutely delicious but will have to make them smaller: it little too rich for so much in one sitting. Im still going an hour after I first started it (I dont want to get too lissed as a pizard at this time of night!)
espresso panna cotta will be there, ill do 20.....i promise AM ;DOriginally Posted by 416E6765724D616E6167656D656E74000 link=1273567885/16#16 date=1274229317
A tad late in the call, but will be there with beans on.
If there are any lurkers following this thread, it looks as though well have the new E61 Shuttle to try out on the day also, as well as about three other different machines, so if theres anyone contemplating upgrading from a lower end machine and wants to see what the hoopla about an HX is all about, come along for the day.
If you dont have any beans to share, a 2L bottle of mik (Norco if you can get it, because Im itching to see what Norco Milk is like) and something to nibble on - even if its just bikkies and dip - you will be welcome with open arms!
Please let us know on this thread of your intention to come along, though, so we can factor in how much roasted coffee we need.
Ill do a name/number count on Tuesday 1st June just so weve got an estimate of final numbers.
Au_d2, I can probably fit you into the car, if worst comes to worst, if you could get as far as the Highway so I dont have to go all the way into the Gold Coast? Im coming from Ipswich, so anywhere you choose, just let me know (keeping in mind Im still fairly new to the Brisbane region, so will need some verbal instructions). PM me if you like closer to the time.
PS: This looks like the gathering of gatherings!!!
I will be coming and
1] I can bring a demo KKTO roaster for test roasts (bring your own greens - roast them & take them home)
2] I can bring roasted beans degassed the appropriate time
3] I can bring my big commercial grinder so folks can have a play and compare
I will see about some nibbles or some Greek yoghurt dip closer to time
Tzatziki...my favourite!!! I had this for the very first time when I was in Darwin, where there was a large Greek population and Ill never forget my first taste - the cucumber mixed with the garlic and yoghurt, and carrot and celery sticks to dip into it, was just fresh tasting heaven in a bowl! :D
Ill bring the GeneCafe also for people that havent seen one before to look at, if youd all like.
This is a special Gene Cafe... It likes showers and to be on at the same time *:oOriginally Posted by 1F382E3C24570 link=1273567885/28#28 date=1274530241
Yeah, just goes to show how robust(a) it is... ;D
So, how many power points have you got in your back yard, AM? :D
Hiding teh power meter from the wife ;DOriginally Posted by 280F190B13600 link=1273567885/30#30 date=1274531046
In addition all power boards and equipment shall be EST prior to being turned on and unless I fail a few... Not enough GPOs let alone powerboards etc etc etc.
Shall be a firstname.lastname@example.org NOT ;D
she be right AM, ill bring over 24 4 port power boards to piggy back all the way out to your backyard ;D
Ive got a 1kw 2 stroke gene if ya want to run the shuttle off that ;D
How many machines are we looking at?
More importantly, how many grinders?

WTF... Why the face... Cause my wife is going to have kittens... Mr Wsully a few of those deserts on teh side for up stairs...
I have a couple of tables.. Power points from teh shed as well as from teh rear of teh house..
I have two grinders and a couple of little hand ones for those who winge :-)
If KK, DI, Yourself and what I have cant manage a couple of old decrepit CSs wanting a few shots.. Then we should pack up and go and hide some where ;D
BBQ; will be a self cook / self serve.
Water from the hose or Rain water tank... Bird shit and all
Guess I could pull 20L plus from teh filer system up stairs OR via one of teh other system I have some where on the place......
For any roasting... Have a 300mm bag sealer for demo here as well...
Will get some ice, but milk or soy etc... Bring it ya self..
E61 Shuttle... As per another post I made...
I would like to get teh opinion and thoughts of teh non hard core CSs (partners / kids etc) to put it all into perspective.
1: Others may bring bits working or not for assessment / use.
2: I may take the opportunity to have some extra crap out side for removal... PC stuff, TVs, DVD players, VCR recorder etc... Happy if they go to a good home...
3: OH and a good time to be had by all...
4: If it looks like rain... Not a problem.. Big garage and plenty of covered space around..
Be an interesting day and doubt it will be for 2 or 3 hrs only...
Im not gunna lie to ya Di and AM, im looking forward to this :D its gunna be a ripper of a day :D
Im gunna be stuffed from work but iVE got some left over PSEUDOEPHEDRINE from my cold :D :D :D

Only a few more sleeps..
Weather permitting it could be a rather interesting day in the back yard..
Weather a bit dirty.. It will still be OK but will bring a few details that may be harder to manage... POWER and a 100% safe place to run extra equipment..
All things being equal.. The E61 Shuttle and a few others / including grinders.. *Roasters will be interesting weather permitting.
NOTE: MrWsully has yet to provide personal deserts and thus the Cisco 24 port 100meg switch may still be up for the taking :-)
SEE post 33 above for more details...
I can bring the Behmor as well for a demo if anyone is interested, and if thats ok with you AM?
And i bought the gelatine leaves for the bloody deserts today AM!!!! I had a laugh ;D
Bloody beautyOriginally Posted by 1612342D2D2837202F410 link=1273567885/36#36 date=1275116756

Just do not forget...
We have an E61 Shuttle to test / take pics / pull shots etc etc and I have yet to experience teh deserts..

For those into servicing.. A few things to show and tell..
For teh kids.. There is the Cubby house and teh Tree house..
Neither Child proof, but thats half teh fun :D ;D
Wsully... Ya got cooking to do... Deserts and beans.. KK I finished the MMMM and they were not too bad ;) Had better but toasted you on teh 27th.
Couple of Working HP5mp printers to go as well....
May also have a full Free standing, lockable Compac Rack.. Not sure may keep it to store things in...
For those that know.. Maybe a box of 30/25 if I can find them.. Tried to hand them in and teh local mob just would not have any thing to do with them.. Licence will be need to be viewed.. Wsully any of ya mad mates interested.. I am tempted to use as a tamper proof fuse in a coffee machine, but man traps are not allowed :D ;D
PS. Every CS member will be expected to pull his/her weight ;)
That means Coffee / Roasting / Cooking / Talking and an all round good time is dependant one each and every one of ya....
Nothing to do with me.. I am supplying access to a backyard and stuff.
I may just sneak off and catch me some extra winks.. Leave it to teh Wife ;D :o 8-)
Am in too - be keen to see other roasters, now 250g dosent go far with my HOTTOP. AM anything I need to bring ? have my brazils and Honduras greens - no 60/40 special though. :) Is this still on at 10:30-11:00 ?

Really keen to get our hands on this space shuttle, sure is a great idea, looking forward to see if it preforms as well as my GPP. Ive been looking at the Chinese equivelant(aka knockoff) Gore-tex rain jackets for my impending Vietnam honeymoon, they dont cut the custard like the real ones as far as perfomance, but they look as cool for half the price, hopefully the shuttle doesnt fall into the same category ::)
Tomorrow is the cut off, everyone - get your names in between now and then and Ill do a headcount/list of those attending tomorrow night so we know reasonably firm numbers and names of attendees.
Really, really looking forward to it!
Took wife to lunch... *She keep looking at me funny... I thought ...
My Gawd its been a while and I think I know that face... *
I was wrong AGAIN.... Not any thing like I thought *;D :D :o
I came clean and told her about SUNDAY...
What, Sunday... This Sunday *8-)
Was advised that in addition to all other warnings... *Sunday is washing day *:-[ :-[ :-[ :-[
YEP.. *Once a month the undies get done.. *:o
So when one only has Seven... Ya can guess what some look like *8-) 8-)
Sunday is washing day... Y fronts and cotton tails.. Big and small, old and new.. *
Coffee2Di4 - Now mind ya head there, Pete !!! *Thems looks like AMs
YEP: Old Hills Hoist and she done bent and broken; when I dropped the banana trees on it. *So she dont go all the way up like she once did.. Just like her owner.
SO... Remember SUNDAY is washing day and no sniggers OR ya get to *pre inspect the tree house for ya kids... *;D
600gm of Aceh Galaeh Mountain grade one roasted on the KKTO today, very carefully, 13 mins to fc and another 6 to the very first snaps of sc, for the testing of the Shuttle this sunday, wanted to use the KKTO because it is still producing better results in the cup than the behmor is, at this stage........time will tell, ill bring over the behmor for those wanting to see a roast, very handy bit of kit ;)
I should be coming and will be bringing friend if that okay. Hes interested in coffee and needs a kick over the edge to become a snob! :)
