    Do Adelaide peeps want to meet at the coffee Barun for a get together next Saturday 5/4?

    It would be great for people who are new to roasting or are interesting in starting to get together for a chat session.

    Id be interested, Lucinda. I know that Mark was considering having a roast-in some time, and we could see about setting that up. As a very new roaster, the more help and info I can gain, the better.
    I like to sleep in a bit on Saturdays, and The Coffee Barun is a good half-hour from my place, so after 10:30 a.m. would be my preferred time.
    If there is anyone in the Blackwood area that needs a ride, I could probably help with that too.

    It seems that it is the wrong side of town for a lot of us.

    I do have transport issues since transadelaide cut out our weekend bus service, but can get there anytime from about ten ish onwards.

    My concern is with a later time, putting Mark out. So some feedback from him would be great.

    My apologies for the Saturday morning at The Coffee Barun. :(
    I have had something come up which requires my attendance at 11 in the city.
    Maybe next month. :)

    Picked mine up today on the way home from work. Had a good chat with Mark and very nice shot. Dont know what coffee it was and if I did bother asking I would of forgotten anyway. With my poor hearing Mark may of even said what it was I didnt hear it.

    Anyway, if offered a coffee take it its worth it.

    If looking for the shop its at the southern end of the shopping center opposite Bob Jane T Mart. I drove past once, found it on the 2nd lap.

    Thanks again for the shot Mark, looking forward to my next pickup.

    Met up with Grey and Mr and Mrs Hazbean. It was a great time, we did a little bit of cupping (well Mark showed us how to do it).

    Mark has done a great job with the shop and it is looking great.

    Just trying to look for an excuse to go out there again. Even OG was impressed and very interested in the Gene Cafe.
