    Re: SYD - Pickup after 28th Sept.

    What are your thoughts regarding picking up beans from you this time around Dennis? Were you thinking a cafe venue that didnt come together last time? Or a by appointment arrangement? or?

    Thanks again Dennis for being willing to serve the CS community as a pickup point. I better pickup my beans soon or eventually my stash at your house will outgrow your own stash. From memory it is up to around 10kg at your house now.

    Re: SYD - Pickup after 28th Sept.


    I heard today that a Sydneysider rang one of the points to see if their beans were in yet.

    Every month I ask...
    DONT ANNOY THE PICKUP POINTS

    Cmon, its common sense that if you annoy the pick-up points that eventually they will stop wanting to provide a service to the local CSrs.

    You ordered coffee knowing that the expected delivery date was "after 28th Sept", take a chill-pill (or try a decaf) and wait for the post in the thread saying the beans are available.

    Ta.

    This Sunday would work for me, it would be 11:30 before I could get there though. So Depending on the time I should probably be able to get to some of it at least, even if that is the tail end of it all.

    Nobody called us, unless of course some Indian call centre worker was enquiring whether his coffee had arrived or not. Very sneaky, he was mainly spruiking mobile phones.

    mmm... not sure that I could pull off an adequate call centre accent for it to have been me ;D

    Nunu... can you PM me your address so I can drop by and do a pick up?

    cheers,

    Michael.

    Good news. The beans have been found and the courier hopes to deliver by 3pm today.

    So while they took a long time to get there we are still (just) on-time!

    Will post confirmation here soon.

    Re: SYD - Pickup after 28th Sept.

    Still waiting on one person to contact me for pickup details.

    If youre reading this Peter, spin me a PM and Ill give you address details and map.



    On a side note, it might be a good idea to have the CS username somewhere so those people can be contacted. Maybe just like a small packing list inside.

    Re: SYD - Pickup after 28th Sept.

    Andy - just wanted to let you know that there are no probs at my end...I had a laugh

    Coffee that people neglect to pick up for a while stays on a separate shelf at home - I figure that once I let people know the coffee has arrived its up to them to contact me.

    Sadly there is no update and with Monday a public holiday I doubt we are going to know anything before Tuesday sometime.

    Sorry for the now late delivery CSrs. :(
    Rest assured we will be following it up with the courier as soon as we can get hold of them again.

    Sue and I had brunch at Nulla today to be joined by Brett and his wife and child (I want sure if it was ok to post their names Brett) at Grinds for coffee.

    I got a t-shirt, we had coffee, gave the owner (dont know his name) one of Andys business cards, and I couldnt resist this.....

    It was good to have a mini pickup meet today! And you should have seen Dennis after he finished that 12-shot flat white from above ;) It was great to catch up with Dennis and Sue and Anne and I enjoyed their company, Bella actually slept through the entire thing (but she is only 13-months so got away with it). Than at Dennis and Sues suggestion we enjoyed some lunch at a cafe for some family time.
    Tomorrow I will get to roast up some of my pickings with the new heat gun I had to buy.

    Re: SYD - Pickup after 28th Sept.

    The beans have now arrived...
    Looks like we were lucky last!!
    Feel free to come in and pick them up.
    There is no rush, and we dont mind holding onto the beans for those on holidays.

    Regards,
    Pedro
