    Re: Perth Bean Bay pickup at Epic

    Made a stop up at Epic this morning to inspect the beans - they look great, especially the Tanzanian beans! I reckon Ill use a car to get this lot rather than my usual method of putting them into a backpack for the train ride home. 22.5 kg is a lot of green beans to lug around that way.

    Hi Grendel,

    Are you sure thats not you logging in as JavaB???? Heh-heh!

    I wonder if Corey would mind if I picked it up on Friday. My seminar finishes at 5pm.

    Thanks Java,

    franjae :-)

    Franjae....

    Can the real Grendel please stand up.... (I think he is in - or going to Adelaide about now)

    Corey closes at 4:00 (I think) on Fridays..... so might be worth checking with Epic - or you might turn up to find the lights are out and theres nobody home...

    We close at 3.30 on Fridays (4.00 every other weekday). Also be aware guys that although you are welcome to hang in the store after close as we pack down for the day, we will only be able to do coffee from 3.30-4.00 on Thursday, so get your orders in early :)

    Cheers,
    Corey

    "Is that a shiny lump of metal in your apron or are you just happy to be tamping?"

    I may only get there on the deathknock of 4pm so might miss out on my first Epic coffee, but Ill be trying my best to end the 3pm work meeting ASAP!

    Im jealous guys, have to work today and will not be able to make it to Epic. Would have loved to have seen the lumps of metal from Greg and also taste the Epic coffee. Oh well maybe next time as I will be ordering the starter pack in next BeanBay.

    Have Fun (lucky buggers mumbling under my breath)

    This months beans have been collected.... thanks Corey for providing storage etc....and to Andy for organising shipment....

    Once again the coffees were excellent- as they always are.

    Greg and his bag of shiny lumps of metal joined us for some coffees and a lively discussion was had by all....

    Until next month.... see you all again!

    ditto the thanks to Andy and Cory for the beanbay logistics.
    I met JavaB, GregPullman, and Cory, learnt some new things and walked away with 12.5kg of greens :) Let the roasting begin!

    Re: Perth Bean Bay pickup at Epic

    double ditto. Was great to put a face to some familiar names and have a general coffee-related yarn with some of the best examples of such being periodically sipped.

    I enjoyed perhaps the best ristretto Ive tasted, which admittedly isnt saying a heap as Ive never had one before, but Im not an espresso drinker and I was able to drink this. I was finally able to experience some of the all-too-familiar buzzwords like mouth-feel, full-bodied and sparkling which have been lacking from the few espressos Ive tried at some other establishments. Great work Corey, and bring on the next Sandy Snob reunion!
