    Evilbay buyers beware!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    There has been a rash of bogus listings for small commercial roasters on evilbay in the US lately by someone trying to scam some bucks.

    Please be careful and if I were you I wouldnt pay for anything in that price range (thousands of dollars) until I or a friend had checked it out in person.

    Its handy having a set of eyes and ears across the ocean, thanks Javaphile.

    There is always a spare bed if you decide to rough it up here in the Rainbow Region when you do visit.

    One of these days Ill be knocking on yalls doors. Whether I arrive via boat or plane, one of these days I will definately be back for a real visit and not just for a refueling stop! So if you see some scraggly looking bum in tie-dye who reeks of roasted coffee and has a strange accent approaching your home youll know who it is! ;D


    If any of yall are ever in the Minnesota area theres always a spare bed here here for you to crash in. :)

    I didnt think that you had any bedrooms in your house as theyd all been converted into a roasting room, printing room, bean storage area, etc. *;)

    I didnt say I had a whole room you could use! Sheesh! You think Id leave that much space sitting around unused?!? :-? Just a bed! ;D Youll have to share the room with the Gothot et al. ;D ;D But its a sizable room and there is still a bed in there. :)

    Well I suppose I could always pull out the air mattress and toss it in the back of the van for ya! Although you might find it a bit chilly in there in the coming months. ;D

    Speaking of THAT room, I suppose I should wander off and do my big roasting session finally, now that Ive (Whatd I do?!?) fixed the problem my db computer up there was having!
