    home roasting workshop - perth?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    just wondering if there are any workshops in perth for home roasting?

    if not, do you think it would be valuable to have such a workshop happen to explain the finer details of roasting etc?

    Best bet is to head along to the next bean pickup day and meet some fellow home roasters. That is far better than most "workshop" type events and you will learn far more from a crowd of CSrs than from one "expert".

    As Andy Suggested if you can get to a pick up, any of us are happy to bring along our gear for you to see in action. WARNING - it can be a bit raucus!!

    Just let us know before so we know what to bring. I have a Gene Cafe.

    cheers

    Pick ups are at Caffeinefreaks place in Wembley. In the Perth community there are people with range of different roasters. So come along for next pickup, im sure a demo can be arranged :)

    If you want to see some roasting before the next pickup, Im sure someone here in the community would be willing to help you out.
    Im happy to show you on my Hottop or my Behmor on a weekend or evening if you dont mind making a trek to South Lake.

    The next pickup day will be after the next Beanbay, sometime toward the end of April (we need to let Andy at least recover from his trip os ;))

    Not sure, why not roast before you go, theyll probably be better than the ones that you buy there????

    Hmmm, wonder if you can take roasted there? You might want to ask around if theres any decent coffee to be had in Bali. ;D
