    Kopi Luwak in the Herald

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    Hes getting ripped off if it costs $1250/kg.

    Yes, I do believe that $1250/Kg is probably wrong but the $50/cup is right. Its a shame the article didnt show any pictures of the areas they talk about.

    Here is one of Magnetic Island

    I had an email from Alan who ad read some of the postings made here on CS when Andy had this available. He told me that this coffee sells like hot scones.

    You wouldnt want to waist to many shots tuning in the grinder at that cost :o

    No - I reckon Id do two roasts on the same day and use the first regular bean as the dial in - even then it may not be quite right. . .

    I love hot scones, with sausage gravy on them.

    No doubt wise words there grendel, if the first shot doesnt come out quite right after using the other similar roast then there is a grand excuse for the barista to enjoy his own expensive wares. Works for me...:d the shots pouring right or not.
