    Coffeesnobs get togethers in Perth?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Hi,

    Can someone please tell me if there is a group of coffeesnob members who have regular get togethers in Perth?

    Why yes - well sort of, we are starting to meet more frequently for bean bay pickups (green beans). We meet at Epic in West Perth. A few of us also get together from time to time for coffee roasting days. I imagine that 2007 may see a more regular schedule of get togethers - youd be welcome to join us naturally!

    Can really be on any day that most find convenient. I live in the Northern Suburbs and a couple of snobs up this way pop around most tuesday nights for roasting, but we have also met at Epic in West Perth in the mornings around 7.30. This is a more central location that a few of us who work in town can use.

    Hi Perthies,
    Im a recent new member, Ive been following the forum for a while, and now have come out of the closet and stepping up from the stove-tops. A couple of Pressos are on their way thanks to Presso.

    I am keen to check out the roasting and the rest of it from the old-hats before choosing grinder and roaster setup (cheap DIY is me, but the hottop looks mint!). The green bean rendezvous is great too!

    I live in Vic Park and work in Balcatta so the central location isnt a problem.

    cyaz,
    David.

    A friend said his office used to order Five Senses "24/7" blend for their office machine.
    I work in Balcatta, but this week I will be on a course in the city, so I will try to make it there for my "first time" :D

    edit: while searching for Epic, deciding to try 5 places this week on each day while around the city, I came across this recommended cafe list by Matt who refers to CS here. Is this the CS member "matt" who posted on Grendels blog?

    I also live in Perth North of the River - Clarkson I too am new on the scene of the crema delights and am keen to roast some green beans in the crazy popper. Would love to get together with someone who has got experience with this type of roasting to show me the finer tips in getting a good roast together.

    I think what Tanghy was trying to say was - very exciting news here in Perth with one Local roaster starting cupping sessions. There will be one this month but I cant make it. It sounds like a lot of fun - they charge for it, but cost looks ok - I can pass on details if people are interested. Also hopeful that the company doing the cupping might consider site sponsorship at some point - we could use a Perth Sponsor!

    Ive been a bit quiet lately. New job and all that. Last year and the year before I organised some cafe days.

    It is probably about time we had another one down at Supreme in Rivervale!

    I am interested in the visit to Five Senses in April too, sounds like a good idea.

    Yeah - Ill be arranging a solid date for 5-Senses shortly Wattgn. It will have to be the afternoon of a week day as they are not open on weekends so hopefully I can set a date by the end of next week so we all have time to prepare our excuses to leave work early that day.

    I would be interested in this also, Let me know when a date is set. I will either be working on and early or late shift as the pool requires us to do shift work. I do get some days off during the week so hopefully it will fit in with your next visit.

    5 Senses is a great place to visit. I dropped in there to catch up with Dean and he shouted me a 45 minute impromptu tour of the place. Very good setup led by a guy very passionate about what he does; thoroughly recommended. Not every place has a Synesso tucked out the back for cupping!
