    thanks for the offer Nathan!

    I was also going to suggest having a christmas snobs gathering/roast day at my place combined with Beanbay pick up. If we can do that at your place then thats cool too.

    Speak up people (says she who has been silent for the last month!).

    Are you interested in doing something on the 8th?

    Cheers,

    Meg

    Hiya everyone

    Nathan, Im coming on the 8th if thats okay. Is it okay if I bring my daughter? My husband has to work that day.

    I have the day off tomorrow so I might pop into Gilkatho and pick up my beans myself though - be good to meet those guys.

    Cheers,

    Meg

    Okay, Ive got 2 people whove asked for my address, please let me know if youre coming and/or you need me to pick up your beans.
    Itd be a shame to come out and go home empty handed.

    I believe one of the other posters on here once pointed to a sign which said "unattended children will be given an espresso and a puppy."

    No problems if you want to bring a little one/or big one, Im sure my 21month old will be helping with the sugar (and tamping).

    I would suggest that anyone picking-up from a pickup point knows (or in this case shares) the list of goods to be picked-up.

    We label everything but with coffee, tea and bags in different cartons we cannot really expect the pickup place to manage inventory for us too.

    Im sure your Dad will find them on the next trip past, he gets to say hello to the freindly Gilkatho staff again and might even grab himself a nice little Christmas Jura for work while there.
    ;)

    Hi Guys,

    Yeah it is really important that you tell us exactly what you are supposed to pick up as like Andy said they are sometimes spread out in different boxes.

    Thanks heaps

    It was a good couple of hours today and thanks Nathan and his wife, sorry hopeless with names and I cant remember, for putting it on. Nathan roasted up a brazil blend (i think) and as I was leaving cooked up some ethiopians.

    Look forward to the next one!!

    cooked up some ethiopians.
    Is that legal in QLD Andrew?
    ;)

    Great to see CSrs meeting face to face. Everyone learns and shares a lot from a social chat over a coffee, I really enjoy the Melb meets myself.

    Sorry I missed out on the pickup. Our weekends are pretty well booked up until the new year. I made a mistake last bean bay and had my beans posted instead.

    It sounds like it went well.

    Maybe another gathering in the new year. I wonder what 08 beans will taste like?

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Hi Everyone

    Please note that we will be closed from the 21st of December until the 2nd of january 2008 so it is advisable that you pickup the remaining beans otherwise you may run the risk of running out over the Christmas break.. and we wouldnt want that to happen.

    Any questions please dont hesitate to ask

    Merry Christmas yall

    Melanie
