    Celebrate the Bean 2006 - Melbourne 19th March

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Celebrate the Bean
    19 March 2006
    Melbourne Museum Plaza



    A move from the Yarra to the Museum (a block from Lygon street) but very thin on details so far.


    Anyone have some good gossip on Celebrate the Bean this year?

    Good gossip on Celebrate the Bean ... hmm ...

    Well, I heard that it was going to be cancelled; doubtless there were difficulties with the Commonwealth Games.

    Wonder what they are charging for stalls this year. My information was that it was prohibitively expensive last year ... outdoors, ridiculously high turnover, high setup costs and low prices for coffee dont exactly make it conducive to great coffee. But its a good event for the big companies to cement their market dominance ;P

    Chris, will you have a stall again this year? You produced some pretty amazing stuff last year, particularly given that (a) your grinders were boiling hot, (b) there were constant gusts of wind and (c) you were using that ultra-finnicky decaf!

    Cheers,

    Luca

    Might be true...

    Pity, it was a good day-out last year and another chance to put names to faces.

    Have to keep an ear out.

    I regret to confirm, but I am led to believe that Celebrate the Bean is in fact cancelled. Not the time to go into details at this stage but I understand that it cannot happen this year due to "other conflicts"....

    Hopefully it will come back next year, even bigger and better. In the meantime, I hope that those who were to be involved might go the whole Rocks Aroma Festival hog and make an even bigger day in Sydney....

    Might be time to book tickets for a Sydney coffee fix, CS Melbournites... ;)

    Ho hum re Celebrate the Bean....sad.

    I will however be at the Harvest Picnic at Hanging Rock on Sunday 26th March.

    Bean Alliance will showcase "Vicino" (a new blend created for the Volvo ocean race) which is based on origins grown near water.....

    As per usual, we will also have the challenging (for the barista), but excellent bean ground & drunk Swiss water organic decaf there too...

    CS members, pop in for a chat and a taste if you decide to come for a drive....

    I look forward to catching up with as many as I can *;)

    Chris - Grown near the water? You mean, like, a lake? High, high in the mountains like where Heidi lives?
