    Aroma 2007 - Whos going?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Thought Id start a thread for this years Aroma down at The Rocks.

    While I generally dont go there for the coffee, I do go to visit industry professionals, see nice shiny metal objects, and just chat about things coffee. It usually ends with a trip up to Lowenbrau for some dunkel weizen.

    So whos gonna be there?

    Re: Aroma 2007 - Whos going?

    If its a nice day, the place whole will be flooded with people. If its a crap day, the indoor areas will be flooded with people.

    Good to see a contingent of CSers turning up.

    Best bet...Take public transport. Parking anywhere near the area is going to be a nightmare. Unless youre lucky enough to work in one of the buildings near Circular Quay, and have access to parking there, take the train. Its just a short walk from Wynyard station. Changing trains just to go to Circular Quay is a bit of a waste of time.

    Re: Aroma 2007 - Whos going?


    Whoever thought of this festival is a G-E-N-I-U-S !! I mean, coffee... in .. The Rocks!

    I have a theory (of course) that tourism NSW constructed the Rocks from papier mache for the sole reason of providing the perfect backdrop for drinking coffee. I know, its so clear once its pointed out!

    Ill be going. Ill look out for other CSrs. Ill be the one with a coffee in my hand. (And the one not made out of cardboard) ... [and the one looking paranoicly over my shoulder] :o

    hmmm....
    b.y.o. coffee cup.

    I like the idea of carting a favourite expresso cup, warming in the pocket and asking for a rinse and a refill.

    Good for the planet too!

    ;)

    With this many Csers helping out there may be no room for Renzo and Ofra.

    Good luck, Flo. Night shift is what stopped me going last time. Intended to go -- after a little sleep -- but night shift makes sleep feel even better than the prospect of coffee at a festival!

    Ahh, sleep. I remember that. That was what we used to do at night before we discovered coffee, right? I remember it was good.

    Im going :)

    The better half has to go to a med conference on Fri/Sat so Im tagging along for a holiday and to look after our little boy.
    I couldnt believe my luck when I discovered this was on the same weekend :)

    Would be handy to have some CS hats or shirts etc for members to help identify one another when at events etc

    Ill keep in eye out and try and track some of you guys down.

    Cheers

    Yes, CSrs gear would be great but I doubt it will exist in 3 weeks times... maybe next year!

    CS member cards could be used in those pin-on plastic conference holders?!?!

    or, wait for it...

    Hmm. Never had a rubber chicken. That would certainly make you stick out.

    My work used to have a rubber fish as its mascot (aka the Mullet). It was very well travelled and had met a number of famous persons.

    Last year the champions tent had a synesso.

    Upstairs in the overseas passenger terminal is where most of the action will be. You got the ECM stand which is usually packed, I think Di Bartoli will be upstairs, and all the AASCA stuff will be upstairs too.

    Re: Aroma 2007 - Whos going?

    Im hoping to go, even if none of you know me......yet!

    Just wish for the following next year:

    1) they have it on any day but Sunday!
    2) I have enough time to take a day off!

    Why oh why does it have to be the busiest month of the year?

    On the flip side, I can talk my wife into it!

    For the lazy, http://www.therocks.com/sydney-Things_to_do_in_Sydney_at_The_Rocks-What_s_On_at_The_Rocks-Aroma_Festival.htm is the link.

    Andy should be easy to spot - I think he is the only person on this website that actually looks like his avatar. Besides, he will be waving a rubber ckicken

    Im not too sure if a rubber chicken on a stick is a prohibited item on a domestic flight.

    ;)

    ...and I dont know where it lives.

    Andy, with your association with coffee Id be surprised if you dont send the sniffer dogs at the airport into a frenzy.

    Re: Aroma 2007 - Whos going?

    I will be at the Rocks as well. Aiming for 12:30-1pm arrival. So will probably miss seeing any of the shootout but might hear the victory celebrations as I disembark the train. Am looking forward to it, I missed out last year but had a peek two years ago. Will get more out of it this time I believe. Might see some of you there.

    Re: Aroma 2007 - Unable to go

    JQ602 - Avalon - SYD departs 6am

    JQ627 - SYD - Avalon departs 19:45

    These are the flight numbers that were to take me to Sydney so that I could compete in and win the CS shootout (nice to be able to say that with out worry of competing!!!!).

    They cost me $222 and are up for grabs to anyone that wants to pay me the $222,
    (it will cost me a fee of $104 on top of this to change the flights)
    so the asking price is not negotiable, anyway if anyone is interested pm me with your phone number, and I will get in touch asap.

    please note that they are Avalon departures and return same day.

    Thanks,

    Craig.

    And no Dennis I am not worried about my Latte art being found out to be fraudulent!! 8-) ::)

    OK OK I admit they were not my designs or work alright?

    They were my 4 year old daughters, Meg, I taught her everything she knows but i did not want to embarrass anyone by entering her either.

    I wish I were going also but with the Impending birth of our 5th child It is not appropriate to leave the state!! :) (read, I thought he would be here already, or at the very least was prepared to taker the flight risk!!!!).

    Fyi all, a certain lad by the name of Scotti C will be on the ECM/Vibiemme stand with us- before he heads off to Japan to bring back the WBC booty ;)

    Great opportunity to meet the man himself 8-)

    I plan to hang around the ECM and Di Bartoli stands like a bad smell. ECM were dishing out the best espressos by a country mile last year (didnt try the Venez stand - but will try to hunt down Luca this year!). Does $1 cover a double ristretto?
