    Melbourne Pickup - July 2007

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This is the thread for banter about the Melbourne pickup.

    I would hope that the beans will be in Melbourne Saturday 15th July.
    (if not earlier depending on when the actual BeanBay happens)

    Yah Veneziano is a wierd, hidden away location but great café, love their machines and grinders! Sexy interior layout and gold/black thing they have going too. Would love to come to the July pickup. (Do i need to register interest? Or will the date just be posted and then we all show up?)

    No you dont need to register....because you are already a Coffee Snob!

    Andy will post a date and time for the beanbay pickup and then we all show up! It is really good catching up with all the other CSrs *:)

    Gday P66,

    Andy will send out a "heads-up" email message to all members when the time draws near. Not far away now though I imagine,

    Yeah, Venezziano is a great location. Loved the Feb pickup when they were closed and we were all picking up the cotton satchels out the back of Andys car...not at all suspect...

    Hi All,

    I was reorganising one of the back rooms at First Pour to move our tech area over there and found a stack of victorian barista competition posters. Ill save them for the 7th and anyone who wants one will be welcome to take one.

    OK; you can open up for me ;P

    Cheers,

    Luca

    PS. Andy; make sure that you have room in the car; I have a little something for you, too.

    Not only do you have to open-up but you first have to come to Geelong and drive the Beans to First Pour.

    Ill be just as happy seeing 19:07 on a 12 hour clock that day.

    Hi Geoff,

    Every pickup, something prevents one or two people from showing up. Its not a problem; we have developed the routine of keeping your coffee in the bottom left cupboard in the cabinet under the sample roaster. Feel free to come in and pick it up whenever it suits you, but just let whoever is behind the machine know so that they can check that you end up with the right stuff.

    Cheers,

    Luca
