    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Welcome to the roasting club Rollo.

    In time you will get the roasts closer to a single number although you will find that some of the uneven roasts are still great in the cup (and that is REALLY why we do this!)

    Next roast try to avoid the 7s and 12s... baby steps!

    Enjoy.

    Andy, the card is great, I am going to incorporate the scale into my database and dispense with Sweet Maria.

    Thanks,

    Heres an idea for those that want the
    You Beaut Limited Edition Previously Unreleased, Special Unique (etc etc...)
    Numbered Editions
    - since there are some prototypes, maybe auction them off and profits go to FairCrack ??

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Member cards!

    Hi Andy
    The card arrived today, thanks for that.
    I compared my roast of last weekend to the card and it comes in around somewhere between a 9 or a 10 on the CS scale.

    I will do another roast this weekend and see where it fits, hopefully this will help me guage some consistency, so far my guage has been my memory from the week before and thats not always that good so the card will be a great help.

    My wife thinks i am a bit potty, she said "what good is that" *:o i guess if she could use it as a credit card then she would think it wonderful. My answer of "its all about the coffee" *;) didnt seem to carry much weight.

    Cheers
    Mal

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Member cards!

    It might not be the worlds most accurate colour scale but at least we all have one exactly the same and that should go someway to bringing some consistency to our roast depth communications.

    I would expect that most roasts will fall into the 8-10 bracket and quite often a reading of 8.5 will used to signify that it was around a 8 or a 9 (which is quite different to a 7 or a 10)

    One thing is certain, if your roasts are a 1 then you needed a little more heat.

    :)

    The things that happen while you are away!

    GREAT idea Andy! Saves me providing tortured descriptions of cities and villages from now on.

    Pity I came back too late for the beanbay. You did say they would be available in future beanbays did you not?

    Cheers,

    Meg

    Yes Meg,
    the very funky and oh so cool membercards will always be available to members with a bean order.
    (green or brown beans are fine but not Starter Packs for logistics reasons).

    One card per member is free, if you loose it then the replacement is $5.00
    (which includes a $2 FairCrack donation)

    Easy!

    Many thanks Andy for this great idea.
    I picked mine up yesterday at Sparkys and we were all impressed with the quality too.
    I was so excited I rushed home to do a few roasts.
    Pity my iroast decided to go belly up and send up that smoke signal for help.

    Oh well now I can build a Corretto without the iroast getting jealous... :)

    Cheers,
    Ken.

    Cheers for the Card Andy...its a great bit of kit, but no shops so far seem to be accepting of it when I hand it over and say "credit account please"

    Sure if you like, and if you get someone else to take the photo then it might make the CS calendar too!
    (depending on how many police and newspaper reporters were involved)

    Id say you need someone to photograph it, just for proof!
    That way you can enter it to go in the calendar too.

    Done, and paid for.

    Re: CoffeeSnobs - Member cards!

    I get lots of PMs asking for a membership card.

    Please note:

    You will find these under "Other Stuff" in BeanBay

    http://beanbay.coffeesnobs.com.au/Default.aspx?CategoryId=52

    No need for the PM or email, save us all some time and just use the BeanBay. :)

    PS: As a rule I dont like PMs, please email me if you need to contact me and use something CoffeeSnobs related in the subject line so spam filters dont eat it (yours or mine).

    Hi gelvin and welcome to CS!

    Your question would be better dealt with if you send Andy an email. Otherwise its likely to get buried in this thread and not spotted. ;)
