    Thank you Cuppacoffee

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My Silvia has been playing up for some months now, producing very bitter shots. *Tried lots of things, and in the end I took her up to the Talk Coffee Sydney opening last weekend. *Chris confirmed that there was a problem with the opv, but obviously wasnt able to fix it at the time. *Since Dennis has started repairing machines, I left it in his capable hands. *Dennis identified two possible problems, repaired the opv rather than just replacing it, charged a very reasonable fee and gave me great coffee when I picked it up this morning. *

    So if your machine needs service or repairs, I would definitely recommend taking it along to cuppacoffee. *Ive poured quite a few "test" shots this afternoon, Silvia is definitely fixed, and I might get some sleep sometime next week if Im lucky. :)

    Thank you Dennis, for giving me my hojo back. *;D ;D

    Well consider ourselves educated Vivianne ;) Hope the coffee is a heap better now...


    btw (and slightly OT)- well done with that filthy Diadema, Dennis...

    We had a non-cs visitor at the TC launch at Cuppacoffee last week...

    Of all the machines I have ever seen, this one tops the cake....It was absolutely disgusting and hadnt had any clean whatsoever in over two years...

    Internally, it had massive corrosion and the tank microswitch was corroded in the open position due to overfilling.

    Some people really dont deserve their espresso machines ::)

    Thanks for the thumbs up Viviane and Chris, and the well wishes Greg.

    What I loved most about that Diadema job was that the customer came in to pick it up today, looked straight at the machine, and said, "I cant believe its the same machine...is it really mine?"

    :)

    that machine really was a sight *:o

    that brown water just continued and continued huh Chris *:)

    kind of reminded me of my days when i was a turbocharger tech and quoting on a turbocharger from an engine that had obviously never seen too many oil changes in its life *:(

    Perhaps.



    What does HOJO mean.....

    Two new names for coffee are "joe" and "HOJO." These are not names for ports or for places. One theory of where the name HOJO originates dates back to when the U.S. Navy used to allow alcoholic beverages on U.S. Navy ships. Grog, Ale, and Beer were supplied as a beverage in the general mess.

    When Admiral Josephus "Joe" Daniels became Chief of Naval Operations, he outlawed alcohol on board ships. He ordered coffee become the beverage of service on the ships, hence the term "Cup of Joe." Because sailors are generally cold, they wanted their coffee hot. The term hot cup of joe was used, then it was shorten to hot joe, then HOJO.

    Next time you come into our cafe and order your favourite coffee, dont be afraid to order it by asking for a HOJO Flatty or a HOJO Latte, or better yet how about a HOJO espresso. We will know exactly what you are referring to.

    Re: Thank you Cuppacoffee

    Funny, TG, thats from the website of a Southern Highlands coffee shop called, strangely enough, Hojos. When I went to authenticate the term this afternoon, that was the only coffee related site I was able to google. Im fairly sure that I quoted the same passage some time ago when someone here asked about the meaning of hojo.

    On topic, Silvia is still working, and Im still wired. :P

    Re: Thank you Cuppacoffee

    Yep...Im going to throw my thanks in here too...

    It came to pass that my boss finally decided that we needed a smaller machine to be used at small functions, as were beginning to get asked to do this on a regular basis. She asked me to source it, trusting my contacts to get us the best machine for the job.

    Without hesitation I called Dennis and laid down what I needed...with the proviso that it could be supplied within a week and a half!

    The boys came through and even though by the Friday before the function, my boss and I were looking at each other, wondering if we were going to actually get the weekend off, the machine arrived and we were set to sell coffee for two days as part of the ABC Open Garden Scheme.

    We followed that event up with a Relay for Life and managed to go through 2 kilos of Andys great Espresso Wow in fifteen hours (there were 600 at the Relay)...Wee Waa was Wowed! ;D

    So, thanks guys...really appreciate your time and help. We love our Lady Anna (as we have come to call her!) and I miss her when I have to go back to work on the Brasilia...*sighs*



    ^ Lady Anna in the garden...



    ^ My passenger to the Relay venue...
