    Ill get my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with to keep everyones palates amused on the day.

    Cheers,

    Luca

    That is good news!

    Ill look far less suss loitering in an industrial area handing out bags of Colombian something or other when everything is closed.
    :)

    What was even worse was that we KNOW the coffee is great at First Pour.

    At least we can use the "cover" of First Pour to drug deal in Abbotsford next Saturday.

    Just like to say that I enjoyed an hour or so at First Pour this morning.

    It was good to put faces to names; Luca, Andy and some others.

    Also interesting to have Luca showing off the Makin machine and grinder - actually seeing the process of dialing in the shot is something I can always learn a little more from.

    Several coffees to die for did no harm also.

    Thanks to all,

    Peter

    Re: BeanBay June - Melbourne Pickup

    Again a big thanks to Luca for opening up the cafe for some "get togetherness" with other CSrs, and for letting us play around on the Makin machine and to taste some shots! (much to my husbands disgust...he really is a tea drinker!)

    I am really leaning towards the Makin machine...the more I see it in operation the more it grows on me.

    Wushoes, it was great meeting you! Hope to catch up with again at the next beanbay pickup.

    Again thanks to Andy for making the trek to FP with the beans [smiley=dankk2.gif]....my husband says [quote]"He looks like he selling contraband out of the back of his car" ;D[unquote].
