    Warning..coffee scam.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Whilst net surfing for new, old and interesting coffee gear, i came across our old friends "Buanacoffee" who have moved sites now to an Indonesian location.
    The site is a larf, with ridiculous "bait" prices on new equipment, .. Silvia V3 for $325,..GS/3 $3235 etc etc
    fake reviews ( read some ), and even listing some rare obsolete items.
    It all appears very convincing but is a total scam ( pay by wire / bank transfer only !)
    Prople have reported placing orders, sending money, (and needless to say)...recieved nothing !
    I am sure they have been mentioned on here some time ago, but they dont show up in a site search ?
    So beware, Buanacoffee is a scam..do not be tempted.
