    Perth Pickup - April BeanBay

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I expect (err, hope!) we can have the beans into Perth before the 28th April.

    You guys can pick a place and time that suits best.

    Re: Perth Pickup - April BeanBay

    If Andy is able to get the beans here before the 28th, then I am free on Thursday 26th all day or Friday 27th at Epic around 2:00pm. (remembering Epic closes at 3pm on Fridays) How is these dates for everyone else?

    Other wise Monday 30th and Tuesday 1st in the afternoon are also good.

    Coral cove Bundaberg is a rural suburb of Perth now????

    Sounds like a LONG walk into Perth for cheaper freight and a coffee.

    If we get the straggler payments through tomorrow then the beans can ship Wednesday morning, should arrive on the 27th I (think/hope/wish).

    Am I sending them to Epic?

    Yep,

    Fine by me as well....

    Lizzie
    Epic is in Outram Street West Perth.... Just down from the Hay Street intersection....

    If heading down Hay Street from the city turn left into Outram Street and Epic is on the right hand side.... There is a fair bit of paid :( street parking nearby.

    See you there (for a great coffee or two or....... ;))

    Edit: Errrr..... meant West Perth!!! must be getting old ;)

    Lizzy,

    Easiest route for you is straight up the freeway, take the Hay street turnoff after you get across the narrows bridge into the city, go left onto Hay street and then along into West Perth. Outram is left off Hay but parking anywhere along Hay is fine - only a short walk to Epic.

    Sounds like a plan grendel....

    Just as long as those late payments get to Andy in time (guess we will know later today)..... If not then one afternoon the following week (not sure how often the shipments are possible from Melbourne - a transport agent Ive used only has 2 shipments per week to Perth).

    2 shipments to Perth seems fairly normal for most couriers.

    The beans are leaving here tomorrow morning and should start there movement west on Thursday they tell me.

    so Epic on the 27th should be very *do-able...

    Re: Perth Pickup - April BeanBay


    Sorry, it does appear they were all coming from the CoffeeSnobs mail server. Seems that it was having some sort of bicker with the [s]Big Puddle[/s] [s]BigPong[/s] Big Pond mail server that now (I hope) is resolved.

    Sorry for the clutter in your inbox Lizzie.

    [hr]

    Good news is the courier picked-up the beans nice and early so they should get to Epic on time or early.

    Ill post tracking info for the freight tonight.

    Good to meet with the Perth CS members at todays BeanBay collection over a few coffees.... and put faces to a few more names...

    More greens to find storage space for now :-/.... thanks again Andy for great service.

    Had a play with prototypes of Gregs new tamper handles..... hes doing some interesting work on these.... and one in particular felt great!!! So stay tuned for some new tamper handle designs.

    Until next month when we will meet again.

    Oops, I didnt know about this... I think I walked past some coffee snobs at Epic this afternoon! If I had known I would have said hello. I did see a few people playing with some of Gregs tampers as we walked in.

    We took my dad for a coffee, he couldnt believe that nobody had put sugar in it.. he was very impressed, quite surprised with the flavour nuances and sweetness.

    Hi Rachel,

    Yep, should have dropped over..... We are a pretty friendly bunch.

    The coffee at Epic (and a very few other places in Perth) is just so good.... I cant imagine anyone putting sugar in it. Once you have had a coffee there, you will regret the next coffee you have in most other Perth cafes.

    Keep an eye on this area, the date of the next BeanBay collection will be posted a week or two before the meeting - see you there.

    I usually cant make it on a weekday...but whenever I have a day off I try and make it to Epic :) Velvet is also very good (and Justin is lovely) and is just that little bit closer to the office. Epic really is in a class of its own though.

    Good work Agent Mike! As I mentioned I dont mind *too* much if people know there are things in the works, because in reality things rarely stay entirely static in my R&D department. But details as to what those forthcoming ideas may entail must remain under wraps! ;)
