    Sydney Pickup - April BeanBay

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

    Pedro from CoffeeParts has offered-up his business as a pickup point which will give the Sydney CSrs a rare treat.

    Ill confirm times with Pedro and update the thread.

    Any prefered dates and times?

    OK... rare as in a CS pickup has never been done there!

    Please focus on the "Any prefered dates and times?" and not the word "rare".

    If it a Saturday, the morning would work better for me. I personally would need to be out of there by 11am in order to get to the North Shore to play soccer. Otherwise I could drop in and pick them up any day but a Wednesday.

    Me! The original date proposed would be good for me..Saturday the 28th, but I cannot get there until the following Wednesday 2/5 if the 28th is a no go...(ah, the joys of shift work!)

    twas not a proposal as much as an ETA for the beans. The proposal needs to come from the members that are picking-up beans.

    :)

    Beans will freight out tomorrow morning, new ETA should be before Tuesday next week I guess but after it has left here its up to the courier.

    Ill update the threads with tracking information when we have it.

    Yes they are all there (now they are!).

    The 3 cartons were all freighted at the same time from here and two arrived there yesterday with the third on tour of the big coathanger I guess.... it eventually appeared.

    Saturday suites me. Weekdays are out of the question, usually out of the state during the week.

    Re: Sydney Pickup - April BeanBay

    I got my beans from Coffeeparts today. Was very easy as a pick up point. Got a park right in front of the door. The added bonus of the toll free period for the Lane Cove tunnel shaved some time off as well. Took me under 25 minutes from North Ryde.

    So thanks to Pedro for using his business as a pick up point and for Andy for making it all possible. I got to pick up some espresso cleaner whilst there so saved freight on both beans and supplies as a result.

    I even roasted up some of the Harrar I picked up, so all in all a productive day on the coffee front in my house.

    Re: Sydney Pickup - April BeanBay

    A worthwhile excursion to Eastlakes to pick up the beans......picked up a few additional extras from Coffeeparts to add to my coffee experience....

    I, like the many others, am extremely appreciative of the efforts of Andy and Site Sponsors and my preference is purchases from those people and businesses. Without the network Andy and others have built up the search for "quality" beans and equipment would undoubtedly be a hit and miss affair.

    Well done to Andy and the team for the enjoyable experience.

    Happy to help!

    Pedro thought that the car parking and good access might be good for Sydney CSrs doing pickups. So far its all positive feedback which is a great sign.

    collected my first purchase of greens from Coffee parts today. All in all a very smooth process, so thanks to Andy, Pedro and the lovely young lady in Coffee Parts wgo got the beans for me.

    All i have to do now is work out how to roast them! I think that Gene Cafe has just moved up a few spots on my shopping list ...

    Oh Andy what have you done!

    I have only just logged on to find that the Sydney pickup is now in Pagewood. I guess you were not to know that my girlfriends parents live literally just around the corner *:(

    Now, what excuss can I possibly make to get me out of this? I will have no choice but to visit. This means certain anzac biscuits and perculator coffee.

    Could be worse I guess...just can not think what at present.

    Seriously though Im happy to drive anywhere to pick up green beans. I just need to remember to upgrade my vehicle fire and theft insurance before I load the Blue Mountain (could be used for hard currency) beans into the wagon.

    Easy fixed... drop dear GF off at the outlaws house while you just nip over to grab the beans. By the time you have a poke around Pedros Palace and drool over the toys, grab a coffee and wander back she will be ready to leave and your stop will be short.

    ...either that or the spare room will be ready for you to stay the weekend.
    ;)
