    If youre ever in Golden Bay...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ive been on holiday in New Zealand - Ive been climbing and camping for 14 days - Not so good on the coffee front Im affraid. I pulled out the 2 cup stovetop which I usually take with me - went to clean it out and looked inside... wow - Alloy REALLY corrodes doesnt it... things looked grim.

    So far its been average, but at the end of the trip I found a place worth a mention. If you ever get to Golden Bay in NZ, you should check out a place in Pohara. "Totally Roasted" Nice little boutique roaster, and the coffee was superb!! After a decent break from coffee it was so nice to find a place that hit the nail on the head.

    They roasted Organic Mexican and Organic Columbian. I had the columbian and it was a terrific shot. They also sold roasted coffee, and they put the roasted date on the bags... great sign!

    So if you ever get the chance to get over to New Zealand... and youre in Golden Bay (which is a freaking beautiful place to take a vacation) then you can also get a great cup of joe.

    Sweet. Talk to yaz all when Im back to work - which should give me plenty of time to catch up on my CS reading! ;)

    I know what you found in the stove-top AndyCJ... I did that not so long ago... "its alive!!!!" he screamed... "its alive" ;D

    Your NZ trip sounded good though and you did well to find good coffee there.

    The last time I was in Auckland for work (September I think it was) Starbucks and Gloria Jeans on every second corner in the city and not a good cafe to be seen. :-X

    I guess its a North Island / South Island thing. ???

    When I was in Aukland in 1999 I had a really good bowl of latte in Melbas in Vulcan St. (I drank milk coffees back then and when you can buy it in a bowl you get a bit excited ;D )

    Dont know if theyre still there or any good any more but I still remember it so it was pretty good then (or maybe it was the pancakes with banana, bacon and maple syrup....).

    Mycle.
