    Coffee Roaster fire in Canberra

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hansel & Gretel in Woden had their coffee beans catch fire in their roaster today.
    Does this sort of thing happen very often?

    Probably does if you roast as dark as they tend to!

    Perhaps Hungry Jacks contracted them for a "flame grilled" product to rival McCafe?

    They've had some really low minimum temps overnight. I think I saw -2 deg C as the minimum overnight temperature in Canberra yesterday. Iced coffee anyone?

    Yep, chilly nights and (relatively) warm sunny days are here again in Canberra.

    Hooray for Autumn in Canberra! Thankfully I can report no fires from my popper... though I wouldn't mind one after the ride to work in the mornings
