    Brisbane Pickup - April BeanBay

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I expect we can have the beans into Brissy before the 28th April.

    You guys can pick a place and time that suits best.

    Beanbay swapping is always a possibility.

    Going 1/2s or 1/4s with someone?

    Well, we can have the pickup at my place again if that suits.

    How do people feel about having the pickup Friday afternoon?

    I have to leave for work just after midday on Saturday 28th April.

    Count me in although I only bought 2.5 kgs of Ethiopian Harrar and 2.5 kgs of Brazil Monte Carmelo.
    Ill bring the rest with me for perusal on the day.
    Any chance to increase the variety is great.

    Cheers,
    Ken.

    Great Ken. We can sort something out on the day. Hopefully :)

    Coffeekid: Ill be working Sunday afternoon. However you still might be able to pop over Saturday or Sunday morning.

    But well see what the concensus is on pickup time.

    Although Im thinking of late Friday afternoon.

    Friday is not good for me. Sat will also be tough as Im in sole parent mode. Sunday morning is best.

    Alternatively, we can do my place on Sat, as I can tote the bub around easily enough. Im in The Gap and have a monster Pav to play with.

    Whatever works is fine with me.

    Yeah, it might be nice to have it at a different location :)

    If youre happy to have it at your place Mark you get to set the day and time.

    The beans are normally delivered on the Wednesday before.

    A huge load of them! Last time they came in at 100 kg.

    Is that a pavlova???? or a La Pavoni...either way we can have lots of fun.
    Saturday arvo or any time Sunday is good and The Gap is nice and close too.

    Belinda if you need a hand transporting the precious cargo my wagon is free of work junk so I can help if needed.

    The Pav is getting all excited by the prospect...

    Sounds like a plan Cane Toads.

    Sparky, please email me the address for the courier to send the beans. (work addresses are best if there is a chance that noone will be home)

    Re: Brisbane Pickup - April BeanBay

    Having bean (get it?) away, I missed the entire bean bay!!! And Im finding it a little hard to justify the left over Blue Mountain!

    However Mark, I do have a towel of Huons that was left here on the roast day. So maybe that can be my excuse for coming around anyway?

    Really though I just want to the the Pav in action!

    Meg, dont expect too much. Ill be home alone with two kids, so my ability to host a gastronomic delight will be seriously compromised. I just hope to get the roast spot on so I can have some nice beans for the pav to chew on.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Maybe they got bored with the scenery. The beans are in Brisbane.

    Yep the beans are in the house....

    I was expecting the JBM to arrive in bags made of cloth of gold.... buy all I got was the the same old CS bag.....

    A bit of a debacle with the courier making two attempts. Apparently he used the nano-knocking technique and no one heard him the first time. But after a few phone calls it all got sorted and the beans are here.

    Anyone one wanting to pick up the goods tomorrow is welcome. If Andy hasnt already sent the PM with my address, just reply to this thread and Ill send a PM with the details.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Some beans are already on their way home. The good news is that both Ken and Adam will be back for next weeks pickup to participate in the festivities. Ken made it to my next corretto roast and Im glad it decided to perform up to my expectations with 1st crack at 10 min and the first snaps of 2nd crack at 18 min.... It is the lightest roast yet and will be ready for next weeks gathering. Im about to do another roast just to make sure I have enough to satisfy the masses.

    Ill see the rest of Brisburgs snobs next week....

    Cheers,

    Mark.


    And Belinda, Ive arranged an armed guard for the JBM. A couple of the neighbours kids will be wielding light sabres... So beware.

    If anyone needs my address for Saturdays bean pickup, just PM me.

    Ill be home all Saturday, so I suggest 10am-2pm ish sounds good for the pickup.
    I still have some of my home roasts around and the Pav will be waiting to be put into action. There may even be some cakes and possibly some impromptu roasting... Yeah Im hooked.

    Any CSer is welcome to drop in, whether they have beans to pick up or not.

    Cheers,

    Mark.
