    Bye bye 2010, Hello 2011

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    ...just when I got used to writing 2010 Ive got to the last page of another calendar.

    2010 has been another amazing coffee year, we have been blessed with too much choice in ever improving crops and better distribution from origin which ensures a higher quality product when it lands. How lucky we are!

    This year we welcomed many new CoffeeSnobs to the community, most are now enjoying far better results from improvements in their processes and many were bitten by the upgrade bug on the journey to coffee nirvana.

    For those that roast at home this amazing hobby has grown through the year and the results keep improving as they tweak and adjust their roasters and coolers to produce better coffee every week.

    Through another year the FairCrack fund has helped more villages on Kilimanjaro and some of them are now pulping and drying their second crop using the equipment that you purchased. It still feels good to give a little back!

    Reflecting on 2010 the biggest standout for me is the real sense of community that CoffeeSnobs share. I could break into a Miss Universe speech about "World Peas" here but that would be way too cheesy, instead Ill just congratulate everyone on helping your neighbour and guiding newbies to better coffee.

    Please spare a thought for the many CSrs in the flood areas at the moment, they are having a terrible time and face a rough start to 2011 while they rebuild their lives. If we can help improve your 2011 in any way let me know and we will.

    I hope 2011 will be an amazing year for all, surround yourselves with friends, loved ones and great coffee and most of all....

    Enjoy!

    One more hour here in WA. Sitting down now and reflecting on an eventful year in every sense.

    To those near, far and wide, dry and wet, I wish you in advance, a happy new year.

    May happiness and health be with you in 2011.
    Lets all enjoy our coffee journey in all its forms.
    A toast to all with my espresso. :) :)
