    2nd Sydney Coffee Crawl - Saturday 6th October

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Ladies and Gentlemen,

    ScootaGal and someone else (ThunderGod?) seemed to think Id volunteered myself to arrange this, and having passed it by my wife, I have!

    As Im not around on Sundays, I figured a Saturday would be a good bet, and 10am is the start time, to help those who find it dificult getting out of bed after a week of hard labour (or staring at a screen). With Hazels Cupping Class on the 15th September (insert shameless plug here), those of you who are going may need to spend the 22nd with the husband/wife/significant dog/cat/other.

    Going from the last poll, I suggest we meet at Newtown, or start it from the other end. Ideally wed take in the following:

    - Campos (Newtown)
    - Cordial (Newtown)
    - Tobys Estate (Camperdown)
    - Mecca (City)
    - Di Bartoli (Bonji Junction)
    - Espresso Galleria (Haberfield)

    and any Ive missed - theyre the ones I either know or picked up from the last post. As the last two are in opposite directions, Id prefer to end at a site sponsors than at an opposite direction cafe.

    If we made a 10am start at Cordial, anyone who wants to could meet earlier at Campos? I suggest we bring enough cash for a spot of food at the halfway point and go til the last cafe shuts - really making a day of it!

    Please indicate if you can come, if you have transport, and what time youd have to leave by! And any cafes which youd like to try, or think we should go past.

    Looking forward to meeting some of you then!

    best wishes,

    John

    PS. Requires moving.

    Well done Identity,

    I would be keen for it, seems a long way off but cant see anything stopping me at this stage. I would probably be driving in, it may pay to use buses once in the city though. Depending on when the next bean bay is it may even pay to make Di Bartoli the pick up point if that is one of our stops, which it should be as the only Sydney sponsor so they deserve our support. I may even make it a family affair with my wife and small child. Need someone to be able to assess the babycinnos ;)

    I imagine Cordial would be quite busy at 10am on a Saturday though. But they do a great breakfast as we found out last time.

    Wise move being on a Saturday as a lot of the hotspots are closed on Sunday anyway.

    Ill be bowing out of this one.

    Our daughters 5th birthday on the 29th!!!!! So as much as I like good coffee, I love my daughter way more and will be hanging with her for the day doing the party thing.

    How fast it goes eh. Im sure it was only last month she was beginning to crawl.

    Have fun, and hopefully the whole fam can come out and play at the next one.

    I had my hopes up for a sec. Thought: Yay, Im not working that weekend. Then I realised that it is the long weekend and Ive got a standing family weekend away then, bummer.

    Dont forget Coffeeparts. Although, Di Bartoli would be more appropriate on a coffee crawl!

    Oops! Sorry to leave Pedro out of it, only missed them as I was thinking of places that sell wet coffee.

    Does this mean that the week after would get you both along? :-?. The long weekend seems, on reflection, badd.

    Nah, for me to come, it would have to be a fortnight after cause I work every 2nd weekend (Working every 2nd weekend is really annoying, but I have to think of the money I get for it...).

    Us! So thats 4 - not sure if its worth doing with numbers so low, could be that everyone is watching the rugby etc, or just too close to the last one......but as no-one else is bothering to post, its hard to tell!

    Seen as though it doesnt look like it is going to happen I will probably make other plans that I need to commit to by 10am tomorrow. Better luck next time it seems.

    Sammy, you arrange it, and they will come - at any rate, my wife and I will. Just not the 8th because its Advanced Espresso day!

    Re: 2nd Sydney Coffee Crawl - Saturday 6th October

    Hi Identity! Is that the DiBartoli Advanced Espresso Day?...Im doing that too!

    OK, well, given whats already been written on this thread I figure a Saturday morning would be best which means the 1st or 15th of December would probably be the date.

    I dont actually know much about coffee establishments in Sydney so your previous list sounds like a good option:
    - Campos (Newtown)
    - Cordial (Newtown)
    - Tobys Estate (Camperdown)
    - Mecca (City)
    - Di Bartoli (Bonji Junction)
    - Espresso Galleria (Haberfield) (...where is haberfield!)

    Um, so, would anyone be up for a December coffeecrawl (maybe i should start a new post). eek. see how that goes!

    The more the merrier, the less, well, i reckon wed still make a merry bunch :)

    I would be in if it was the 15th. The 1st is definately out for me.

    A suggestion, if you are planning to have a breakfast place for the start Cordial worked very well for the one that I organised. I have never been to the cafe mentioned at Haberfield but the others on the list are more coffee oriented than food. Cordial manages to achieve both with excellence.

    Maybe the truly dedicated could even meet at Grind at Cronulla ;) Or maybe just shire people could gather there to car pool if it is feasible.

    Re: 2nd Sydney Coffee Crawl - Saturday 6th October

    OK, what about December 15 then? Who can make it?

    That sounds like a great suggestion Brett; in that case would we switch the first two; begin at Cordial with breakfast, then Campos etc etc. Grind sounds like a good idea too, i guess see what other ppl reckon/where they are coming from etc.

    In terms of transport, it was mentioned previously that public transport might be better than cars, and now maybe even more so as it gets closer to XMAS crazy season. What do you reckon? Ive got a vehicle (dont know how to get to any of these places though).

    Gday all

    I was thinking about a CS sydney chrissy get together the other day.
    The 1st one was great and I hope this one can get off the ground.
    Might I suggest though that you start a new thread for it so that there is no confusion.

    Unfortunately my fam and I cannot make the 15th *:( Family chrissy get together.*

    Good luck, Im sure you will have fun

    I cant make the 22nd I dont think, or if I can then someone else might let me know by PM, and its probably too close to Chistmas,

    Sammy I look forward to seeing you at DB - Im hoping to crawl around the shop drinking coffee that week, so itll be a mini-DB coffee crawl!

    Signature blend, Sweet Marias, Renzos Dark one, etc.

    Re: 2nd Sydney Coffee Crawl - Saturday 6th October

    OK...should i start a new post thing for a coffee crawl on the 15th of December? The 1st is too close now. The 8th might be OK for some people too. I think the 22nd is a bit to close to Christmas.

    Identity, after all the practice shots and tasting at DB i think well all be pretty wired! Look forward to seeing you there. (i love their signature blend!)
