    Melb. Green Bean Pickup + Open House Sat 2nd Dec

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    Dave and I and probably Pete are delighted to host Melbournes green bean pickup this coming weekend:

    When:

    Saturday 2nd of December
    10 am to midday

    Where:

    Veneziano Coffee
    22 Bond Street
    Abbotsford

    Bond street comes off Victoria Street, which the 109 tram runs along
    There is plenty of parking immediately outside the roastery
    (See attached map)

    What:

    Pete and I are fooling around with a blend for french press that I would love to get some feedback on. Were not sure what machines we will have plumbed in at First Pour next week, as were waiting on a few cabinets and things to be finished, but at the very least we will have a few Makin Espressos going if anyone wants to have a play on them. Or if you just want to have Dave make you a coffee ;D

    Everyone is welcome, even if they are not picking up green beans.

    Why:

    Because weve got this new building and weve got to do something with it ;D

    Cheers,

    Luca

    Great session this morning, guys! Loved all the machine and bean chat.
    I still cant work out how such a pedestrian topic as coffee can be so engrossing.
    Well done!

    Too true Joe,
    Great venue, great people, great coffee.

    Looking forward to seeing First Pour open-up, its an exciting venture for the Melbourne coffee scene and should be a regular haunt of CSrs.

    Thanks to Pete, Dave and Luca for offering the venue and letting the members poke n prod and ask loads of questions.

    I must say this is my second visit to Veneziano and I have actually leant heaps in these two short visits. All the guys are very giving of their time and knowledge.

    Thanks to all involved from a very happy CS!
