    CoffeeSnobs - Go large!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Guess what?

    CoffeeSnobs is going large... very large!

    We have taken a lease on a 450m2 shed plus 10 car parks.

    CoffeeSnobs.com.au
    59 Morgan Street
    North Geelong
    Vic 3215

    We have been shipping green beans from there for the last few months while we were setting-up the roaster and building a new showroom/playroom.

    There has been a huge amount of building, painting and general setup to this point and we are still going. *I was hoping to have it all finished before I announced it but its all dragging-on and I just cannot keep the secret any longer!

    So enough typing, here are some progress pictures of...

    SNOBBERY TOO



    Lease signed!


    Paula and what looks like a tiny Snobvan in the corner.


    My kids being mannequins in the front window


    The frame for the showroom gets started. *That wall when finished is 3300mm high, 9200mm long


    ...and the frame stands up.


    ...goes around the corner.



    looking big.


    ...and gets covered.


    The kids have fun in the off-cuts and sawdust


    The walls take shape


    Can see progress now


    Sarah and Zed paint the ceiling joists as well as each other.


    Tiana tends to her garden (watering with a milk jug!)




    The showroom walls are finished

    Now the roasting room gets a tweak



    I removed the old single door and put double saloon doors in so I can get in and out with an arm load.



    Walls have been covered with fire-rated plaster, with double tin sheet behind.


    Sanding plaster is a messy job!



    Garden outside the roasting window after it got the Tiana/Trevor flower treatment.

    Gets painted and goes up!



    Ceiling tiles go on.



    Floor gets painted



    Roaster room gets painted


    The floor gets paint


    ...and the new roaster we are building goes in.

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Go large!

    as if multiple full-time jobs consisting of IT work, roasting and building were not enough to fill in my "spare time" something made me think that we could also build a better roaster at the same time so we are!

    Most of the engineering on the roaster is done, we are waiting on the Type-B gas plumber to source the special burners which will be driven by the CoffeeSnobs Roast Monitor software and then he will finalise the gas certification so we can fire the very pretty stainless beasty up.

    Sometime soon the electrician will be installing more 3 phase around the shed so we can power this and other things up.

    We are still pretty far from finishing all the building, roaster engineering and snobbery setup as things like BeanBays and Behmors tend to jump the queue but the above pictorial posts should give you an idea of where we have got to so far.

    When we finish it in the coming months we will have one heck of a "snobbery too" warming and all the CSrs will be invited around for a cuppa and a biscuit (or similar).

    Congrats Andy.

    Its really taking shape. You and your helpers deserve many pats on the back.

    Cant wait for the "snobbery too" warming. Shall we all bring a plate of something to have with a nice coffee perhaps? I can do a pretty good baked cheesecake!

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Go large!

    Thanks all!

    Its been a fun trip thats for sure. The hours have been insane and weather varied from winter icy to dripping hot but thats what you do when you cannot afford to pay for someone else to do it... you just enlist the kids and make em work for their supper.
    ;)

    It should be a pretty groovy place to "hang out" when we have finished... a CoffeeSnobbers paradise full of gizmos, toys and of course plenty of beans.

    I like the idea of "bring a plate"... will do that for sure if only to see how creative you lot can be.

    Wow, thats a very generous offer Anger Management. Thats going to cost you a bomb to ship CSrs in from every state. Are you flying them all business class and providing accomodation too?

    Its looking fantastic Andy!

    Congrats on a job well (done) on the way to completion...

    The roaster looks incredible and I already have a massive case of roaster envy. Upgraditis, upgraditis, upgraditis...

    NO! *blocks ears, shuts eyes tightly*

    Very impressive. Sounds like a journey to Cats territory may be in order around that time.

    Im wondering what you need a showroom for? Will you be selling CS roasted / greens from there or will you be branching into equipment sales?

    Yea... *Enough of a heads up so that CHEEP flights can be arranged...

    1: *If two or more arriving we could share transport *costs

    2: *Enough space, for a sleeping bag or two on the floor; So accommodation is covered...

    I mean, we have to watch pennies so we can afford more shiny coffee things..

    Opps Java "can I come too" phile might be an issue...

    WOW!!!!! Andy my jaw dropped and is still on the ground. Absolutely amazing work! The fact you and your family have done all the work to adds a certain element to the snobbery factor! Those walls are made of beans and love!

    What an amazing space to be creative in and roast!

    Wish you all the best of luck and success in the new venture! Hopefully should cure any upgraditis for a few years :)

    Roger

    P.s love the fact that the coffee machine and grinder were the first things to be setup! ;D

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Go large!

    Congratulations Andy and family!

    Looks to be a great space and am sure in no time at all it will be filled to the rafters.

    Thats a handsome roaster and I love the stainless flue parts. *There look to be some very interesting mods to the roaster too.

    Im just a little concerned that the dimensions of the roaster room are big enough for the next upgrade! *;D

    Good on you mate! :)

    Congrats on the new premises. I am sure there will be a lot of visitors. I however will not be in Victoria for a couple of years so I will have to wait patiently to visit the home of Snobdom. [smiley=thumbsup.gif] [smiley=thumbsup.gif] [smiley=vrolijk_26.gif]

    The way I see it I only have a few more years before they are big enough to expect pay or get the union on the case. Ill make hay now...

    Good question! ...but I dont know the answer.
    The showroom was built "because we could", we had the space and needed something a little less industrial to play in.

    It really is a play room, and will have a lot of toys. Behmor, Gene Cafe, Hottop, Hearthware, iRoast and others to play with. A few new machines and grinders setup (only for off the street sales as site sponsors have that well covered now) . A few interesting old machines to pull shots on. Lots of beans and a cupping area along with a sample roaster. We will prob have some roaster or espresso training running there from time to time too and I expect a good showcase of sponsors products to try/test/play.

    Who really knows what will end-up in there, its a cool area that will chop and change on a whim (or ebay bargain!).

    :) ...but I dont own it... although looking at the changes I act like I do.
    It was funny when the landlord dropped in the first time, I had just finished knocking down his single door into the roaster area and it looked like a bomb went off. I was so glad I hadnt asked permission else he might have changed his mind.

    Nah, I cant guess a date. The problem is that Im depending on gas and electrical dudes to do their thing and with the Christmas/New Year slowdown its really hard to get parts etc. Im also funding this from my shallow pocket so its a case of what I can do, when I can do it.

    BeanBay-greens are all shipping through there and we ship all the roasted coffee (which is roasted at the original Snobbery) from the new place too so really, Im working from there now.
    ...but as to when it will all be finished is anyones guess

    Of course! Its had a hammering too with plenty of late nights... but all my cupping notes have "tastes like pine sawdust and paint"

    They love it. The more they do the more involved they feel in the whole process as they earn some "prowd ownership". ...although the painting was just good ol messy fun. (I really should have got a shot at the end of the day with paint in their ears and everywhere else too!)

    **shudder** I dont plan on getting a bigger one. This one is 10kg (same size as current) and Im happy with that as it is small enough to play, big enough to pay its way without making roasting a chore.

    Heck, if its not fun I dont want to do it.

    Ad hoc at best! Currently Im all over the place, from fighting with customs and wharfies at the dock to roasting at the other Snobbery and all sorts in between including IT work.

    The closest we are to regular is being there to meet the courier pickups.

    Long term we might have some need to have more fixed times but the same reply rings true...

    Heck, if its not fun I dont want to do it.

    Ill plan to keep a 43 bean jar for special visitors.
    :P

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes, its another leg in this fun journey and its really, really cool that you are all coming along for the ride too.

    I hope each and every one of you can make the pilgrimage to the SnobbyHQ one day.

    ...it took me nearly 42 years to work that out.
    Well, thats not quite true, we spend the first 10 years of our life following that mantra and then life makes you do things "because you have to" and you forget that it should be a fun trip. It took me another 30 years to get back on track.

    I thought the Hokey Pokey was what it was all about!
    They lied to me through song!

    Youve got way more energy and drive than most people Ive ever met Andy. I hope you continue to have fun on this madcap journey.

    Ah, that it is, that it is. I chuckle when I think of what my accountant will say when he finds out at tax time too.... poor bloke, I give him so many grey hairs.

    Superb!

    Looks brilliant and adds yet another weight to my decision making process for next family holiday - tour of Geelong, I wonder how that would go down with Mrs Grendel. . .

    P.s love the fact that the coffee machine and grinder were the first things to be setup!
    Note the extremely long extension lead in that photo running up over the (unfinished in that pic) walls just to plug in Mr Espresso Machine and Mrs Grinder... Love it...

    Hmmm... maybe there is a tourisim grant in there... or at least those brown attraction signs?

    We might quickly become the main reason that people visit the region

    The 50 minute drive from the city might be a bit too much for a Melbourne pickup... which is why I drive the beans up each month to save everyone travelling.

    We do have Morgan Street as a free pickup point all the time now. The logistics of picking up is tricky as Im in and out often.

    If you select Morgan St pickup you will be sent an email when your order is packed and ready to grab.

    We suggest 3pm-6pm as times that Im likely to be there through the week (freighting/couriers and post office happen then) but often Im there from 9am-9pm odd

    Sometime in the future we might have actual "opening hours" but for now its always going to be best to ring first to make sure that Im going to be around.

    My congratulations also, I havent been to Geelong for quite some time, may now be sooner rather than later as it is only 3 odd hours drive from home, and I do like the Great Ocean Road area. ;)

    Hi Andy

    Is the snobbery open yet?

    I might have to take a *cough* break from the machine one weekend and venture from Werribee down to Geee-long.

    Cheers

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Go large!

    We currently work out of here (shipping beans in and out) and some CSrs are picking up their orders from here but we still roast out of the original Snobbery until the new roaster is fully sorted.

    As 2mcm said, when we have the official opening party all the CSrs are at the top of the invite list!
