    Coffee training day in Hobart- 7th October

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey all you Tasmanian CSs.

    After reading 2MCMs post on training in Melb. I pmd him and asked about some training in Tassie.
    He has offerred to come to Hobart, I know of one other CS who would be interested, (and both of us have to come from Burnie).

    Who else is out there that would be interested?

    I will be away next week, so not likely to followup on this for a week or two.

    Regards
    Bullitt

    Hi Bullitt and other Tassie CSers *8-)

    I had a PM discussion with 2MCM and the best date for the training appears to be Saturday October 7th in Hobart, a day of training followed by a CS drinks/dinner if you guys are staying down in Hobart?

    This is a great idea of yours Bullitt, it will be cool for the Taswegian CSers to meet up, given that you guys are in the North, im sure we can get some fun cafe days happening around the State in the future! *:D

    Rayzurhed - are you the other Burnie CSer coming down?

    We have locked in a great day of all things coffee for Hobart CSers...

    Polly (Baristacrat) has very kindly offered her abode for invasion by Tassie CSers and Ill be flying in 1st thing that morning...

    Places are limited- contact either Polly or moi if you would like to attend

    A Tassie CS dinner is planned for the evening- This will be a great opportunity to get the "down south" network up and running....

    Hey Brekel- it will be an advanced skills type day ("Domestic God Shots") aimed at an understanding of the full espresso menu and getting the best from your own machine to ensure that you produce consistently outstanding coffee...

    We will use discussion, and a heap of hands on- as well as some AV...to cover:

    Advanced shot production and problem solving
    Milk texture and latte art

    ...and whatever else is relevant to the gang...

    There will be a dinner on the Saturday nite to allow CSers to get together and meet and perhaps get the first Tassie cafe day organised?? There may also be a....now wait for it.....Mystery guest/demigod [smiley=vrolijk_26.gif]

    Should be a whole heap of fun...

    I dont think I can make the dinner, but Im free through the day. It sounds good. Ive basically learnt from experience and from lots of reading, so this sort of training and some actual live demos can only help.

    Re: Coffee training day in Hobart- 7th October

    Taswegians - I am SO up for the best day of our coffee lives - no exaggeration *;) *if there were clowns and ponies it wouldnt get any better, especially with a guest appearance by Chris Hottop Roaster (better than a pony!) and that other VERY special coffee snobs celebrity guest.....but that would be telling! *:-X

    Chris has arranged a great deal for us as a special training price for the day and will also have a selection of coffee/barista related DVDs and books available at a great CS discount. It is BYO beans, machine and jug, I will supply milk and spring water for the machines. Once all the places are full ( I think we are pretty close) ill send everyone out directions etc.

    Drinks and dinner apres training will be at T42 down on the Hobart waterfront: meet there at about 6.30pm - if there are any CSers in Tasmania/Hobart that cant make the training but would like to join everyone after for an informal dinner, meet and greet, PM me so I have an idea of numbers, we would love to see you. *[smiley=beer.gif]

    And of course if you have been planning a trip to beautiful Tasmania - throw in some coffee training while you are here * ;D
