    Good Food & Wine Show

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone, we went to the good food and wine show yesterday in Melb and seen Scottie Callaghan do a wonderful presentation.He made a couple of signature drinks one with a Mexican dried fruit, I think it was called Ancho and cream .The other had a coulpe of Italian spirits and ginger.
    Hes skill as a speaker was second to none, he explained a few little tips to the people watching, about how to reconise a good cafe or barista. Also how to pick fresh coffee, so all in all it was quite informative, so anyone going to see him at other shows I would highly recommend it.

    Hi everyone, sorry I havent replied but I broke the PC. The rest of the coffee scene was just sunbeam display not much else but Im sure I missed quite a bit.
    The presentation Scottie done was really aimed at people who like coffee and wanted to know a bit more.A youngish lady asked Scottie about Fair trade and whether it was good coffee, of course being in a public forum such as the food and wine show you could sense Scottie felt umcomfortable answering the question.But with the best of his abilty he said there is better coffee out there, and if she would like to discuss it they could talk about it after his presentation.I guess some people just dont know what the are really asking people to say.

    She might have thought Fairtrade was a brand or bean type.

    Hopefully she was just looking to find good coffee and its a name shes hearing a lot.
