    Gathering at cuppacoffee roastery

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Similar to Pioneers offer...

    I will offer any home roasting coffee snobs 3Kg of the voted bean from my stash including postage for $20. You roast it and send 500gm back. The offer is to 10 people only, preference to NSW home roasters who will be attending (if we get too many takers). The tasting will be done by the NSW coffeesnob community at cuppacoffee roastery, all blind. We will cup in plungers.

    Interested parties cast your vote for bean type.

    Date for tasting: 24th May

    Bean Selection:
    Guatemalan Huehuetenango SHB
    PNG Kimel Grade A
    Sulawesi Toraja Grade A
    Ugandan Bugisu Grade A

    Let the games begin, eh Dennis?

    Ill be up for that. I havent roasted any of those beans in your stash but have been interested in the PNG Kimel - so thats my vote.

    A bit apprehensive about taking on you and Dudley with my Corretto but :-/. I just caught up on the commercial v home roaster debate and I agree that, whilst I have fun and do alright playing with my setup, theres a reason an artisan shells out big bikkies for a commercial rig. Is that defeatist talk homies? :-/ :-/ Sorry, but Ive tasted Denniss Yirgacheff :o.

    Just a note to say Ive changed the date to Saturday, 24th May as well be at Caringbah markets the following day.

    If theres a strong call for a Sunday, it will need to be a date in mid-June - then again, maybe by then the criteria will have been sorted out. ;)

    Sounds suspiciously like you want that to be the one.

    I only voted for it.
    Didnt say Id contest you with it.


    P.S. My spellcheck offers to swap "cupcake" for "cuppacoffee". ;D
