    Cool Sth East QLD Get Together - 14 July 2012

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all

    More details will be posted shortly by CS member, Lacehim, but we are having a SE QLD gathering next Saturday 14 July 2012 on the Sunshine Coast from 10am - 2pm.

    All welcome to attend, including Kidlets!

    Lacehim will have his Wood Fired Pizza Oven going and you're just asked to bring some milk, if you're a milk drinker, a plate of food to share, any special pizza toppings if you want to get fancy, and any machinery or coffee gear that you want to show off.

    As said, Lacehim will post more details shortly and at that stage, you can PM your intent to come directly to Lacehim, but feel free to indicate on this thread for the time being.

    I'm in!

    Cheers
    Di

    Thanks Di,

    Most of the info has been covered above, but anyone from CS is welcome, you don't have to be a lever nut. There will be a PV Lusso 2 group, an Olympia Cremina, and a KKTO to play with, as well as Woodfired Oven Pizza, and a group of like minded people to talk about everything coffee. It's also a great time to put faces to names, and meet new people.

    If your interested post here or PM me, and I'll PM you the address. Date and time is listed in the above post.

    Location is North Sunshine Coast, around 2 hour drive from CBD Brisbane, 5 mins from beaches and 15 mins from Noosa. You could always make it a weekend trip and enjoy the Sunshine Coast If there is a group of you, why not car pool and have someone to talk to on the way!

    I've changed the title of the thread to more accurately reflect the coverage of the get-together.

    Anyone else interested in coming and meeting fellow coffee nuts and playing with some toys?

    I've already let Lacehim know that I'll be there (as have a fair few people who haven't posted in this thread). Should be a good day.

    C-man, I can't PM you. Says you have selected not to allow PMs.

    Can you fix that, PM Me and I'll reply with my address. Cheers.

    I'd love to come... But I'm working all day. I understand you have to have it on weekends for most people. But weekends really don't suit me. :P Another time.

    Lacehim-

    I have the details via PM now, thanks!

    I got some Mexican SO decaf beans from The roaster at Belmondos, should I bring some so everyone dosn't start bouncing off the walls?

    I can also bring my new Rosco Mini hand grinder for different bean requests.

    Cheers!

    C-

    That was just too much Fun!

    Lacehim and his wife are great hosts and just the "salt of the earth"

    They can make the best wood fired Pizzas Hands down I ever tasted, even better than we had in Italy!

    The lads were funny and we kept trying to make that good shot, never quite got there but we had fun trying.

    Some interesting Frankenstein KK Roasters too.

    All in all a great day for us! as a newbie I soaked up a lot of interesting knowledge.

    Many thanks!

    A great time had by all. Glad you enjoyed yourself C-man it was great to meet you and your wife.

    Let me know how you go with your beans too. Lovely grinder, and I think I might just have to buy one! Just don't tell my Mrs!

    Big thanks to Mrs Lacehim for putting up with us talking coffee for hours on end!
