    Theft Warning to roasters

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Yesterday two local coffee roasters - Bonissimo and Fiori had the heavy copper gas lines to their roasteries cut - and removed.

    Obviously scrap metal prices have reached an all time high.

    If you have exposed copper gas lines I recommend a nice wrapping of razor wire!

    That is utterly ludicrous! Did it happen to anyone other than coffee roasters?

    There has been a copper theft problem in Adelaide for months. Some of the thieves have also been nicking copper fro, electricity sub stations - though unfortunately none of them have been killed whilst doing so.

    Dirty rotten scumbags have also been taking it from churches and new homes being built too.
