    The Age - Might be worth a look...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I see that Epicure tomorrow has a feature entitled
    The New Coffee - the new breed of roasters changing Melbournes favourite brew.

    It seems one of Epicures writers (Leanne Tolra) is going to have a regular weekly column on coffee related matters - roasters, cafes & baristas. Justin Metcalf is featured (I liked the comment ""You must grind the coffee for the customer, in front of their face. In front of their face..."), Jill Adams (W.Angliss) gets a para or two.
    The other article looks at three roasters in Melbourne - St.Ali, Jaspers and Eureka.
    St.Ali gets a feature of its own, with Mark sprawled on his hessian bags for the camera. Wish they had published a picture of the roaster, although the writer mentions it favourably as with the Synesso and the awesome Nez du Cafe set.

    Some art from Flavours of Lakhoum, but I dont think the place gets mentioned in any of the articles. I havent heard of the it before, anyone been there care to comment?

    Yikes! Having a ghostly apparition in my coffee would be a bit too much for me :o I think I prefer the good old rosetta.
