    Perth Cafe Day - Saturday 26th August - 12:00

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Heads up for everyone in Perth.

    First of all apologies for not having another cafe day sooner. It seems every time we have one we have a great time and really they should happen more often.

    This one will be simple. Just bring your beans and if you want something made from chocolate or whatever for snacking (this really is optional as typically just one or two snacks are plenty).

    It will be at my place in Woodvale. I will supply milk if people feel the need. There is no theme for this one, just show up and drink coffee!

    Woodvale is just off the northern motorway and is about 8k south of Joondalup.

    The Address is:

    20 Ashton Rise
    Woodvale

    Cool, only 8k south of Joondalup.

    Pity Joondalup is 3500km west of here first else I would have dropped-in too.

    Looks like a good chance to have a cuppa, checkout someone elses roast and maybe even get to have a play on Grants Bezzera.

    Should be fun.

    Andy,

    Yes, it is a long trip from Perth to any other city in Australia, for sure.

    My Hottop is available too for anyone who wants to try one out, just bring along some green beans and youre in business!

    The Bezzera will welcome you also...

    Heads up for CS people in Perth:

    I have organised a cafe day at my place in Woodvale in Perth for noon next Saturday.

    So far only Kovacs has replied to the thread. If you are interested in coming let me know. These days are always a good opportunity to taste each others blends and talk coffee.

    New members are most welcome and can learn a lot by talking to other CS members.

    Im new to CS but would love to come along if I can get away. I live a little further north (Butler) but far enough to deter me.

    Ill have to see what the wifes work calendar is like though - I may be looking after the kids that day.

    Well at this stage looks like I am spending the day at home with the boys - Mrs Grendel is working.

    That is a shame.

    Just leave the kids in the backyard with a bowl of water, it works with my boy Ralph (kelpie/blue heeler cross).

    Id pity the bowl of water in my case - it would have a very short life. Have a good day anyway - Ill certainly be keen for another one.

    The cafe day went well with Marik, Anna and Phil in attendance. Phil and a few others were unable to make it so numbers were down on the usual 8 or so that we get. Mind you it was a lovely spring day too so I think some people had gardening rather than coffee on the mind.

    We tasted some bought coffee from Five Senses which was actually very good even though it was a few weeks old. Willem had a nice Columbian and african blend and I did the PNG Serenhi. The point taking was a bit too casual to tally up but I think Willems coffee probably came out on top, freshly roasted in his new Hottop.

    For those who missed out I am organising another cafe day at Supreme Coffee machines for September. I want to get these days going once/month or thereabouts. You may ask why I didnt do this over Winter. Well, winter is virus season and I have spent most of the winter fighting colds which is a bummer. I thrive on sunshine and heat.

    Roll on Summer!

    Sounsd like I missed a good day. 5-Senses is my fall-back position when stuck in the city - I know which Cafes use it and how often they get fresh deliveries. They have also helped out with green coffee beans in the past - they do buy interesting lots.

    You picked a pretty good day for it!
