    BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This thread is for discussions about the Perth Pickup.

    We expect with prompt payment (by everyone) that the beans can be in Perth about the 8th June.

    Previous pickups have been at Epic cafe. So it could be there again or maybe you have another creative location for the pickup (maybe somewhere that is open on a Saturday?)

    Pick a place and let me know where they are being sent.

    8-)

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    Hi Andy,
    Epic has great coffee, so I enjoyed picking up my beans there last time, getting a double ristretto on the way!
    The staff is also great as is the barista, Vanessa.
    I got a great lot of beans last time. We have been & will be going away again soon, so I will not need any beans for a while.
    By the way, the coffee in the major Chinese cities is disgusting as is the wine, so we had to drink a lot of beer.
    Ciao,
    Brian

    I would have thought tea would be a safe bet in China!
    (or did all the rabbits eat it?) ;)

    Yes Brian, Epic seems to be popular with anyone who can get there during business hours. I just like to kick the idea around in case someone wants to try something else.

    There is a place in Joondalup that serves nice coffee. Id have to ask the owner if this would be OK but a change is as good as a holiday sometimes. What are your thoughts Terry and Grendel?

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    I have just spoken to Corey at Epic. I didnt want to offer until I had spoken to him. I am prepared to offer saturday pickup as an option. He was happy to let me do that.

    So Andy is this possible or too late for this beanbuy. If all beans were shipped to Epic, I can then take the T5 option beans up to my shop or is it easier to just split the delivery locations.


    Cheers


    Terry

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup


    I dont need to know the pickup points until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

    (It takes that long to receive payment, pack and freight the beans.)

    So yes, it can be anywhere (within freight areas) and the concept of this thread is that the locals will select what suits the majority best.

    Im not keen in splitting the shipment to two locations (too hard, too easy to whoops) but I cannot see a problem if the leftovers from a Saturday pickup at T5 was taken to Epic by a CSr on the Monday.

    You guys will sort something that suits Im sure.

    well, ;) normally we would object to travelling aaaaalll the way north for our pick up, but since we happen to know the coffee place you mean and totally agree with the great quality of the coffee ;D ;D... yes, T5 would do nicely for us too, and we can travel up any time, any day... as long as Rob can have an affogato???? Teryy????

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    I will try my best to get the freezer sorted by then. I think the best idea is for all the beans to go to Epic as usual and then if you let me know before pickup, I will take your beans up to T5 for saturday 9th June pickup.

    Not sure how many WA orders this time, but that at least will give a Saturday pickup option.


    Cheers

    Sounds good Terry. Let us know if you have trouble getting a freezer by then and I will bring the ingredients to make icecream on the spot in you Icecream maker.

    Fresh coffee and fresh icecream affogatos.

    Either that or I stop and buy some gelati.

    Terry,

    Ill also do the Saturday T5 pickup (could you pick up my Beans as well), but am working until lunch so am not available for a gathering until after lunch

    Would a 2pm or 3pm gatherng suit everyone. This way we wouldnt impede on your lunch crowd.

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    Hi All,
    Ive gone in on the Perth pickup this time round all. I live on the south side, so Joondalup is a fair way for me to travel. I frequent Coreys place Epic and would be in on meeting there for a pickup if it suits anyone else who lives down this end (south).

    Cheers

    Ya well ya know what with the nulabor, the public holiday we had and you didnt, the sand, the flies, the sand, the clogged highways with all the job seekers heading west, the sand. . .

    Every package arrives here slowly!

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    Just remember taht on Fridays EPic closes at 3.30 pm so bean bay usually commences at 2.30 till 3.30.

    I may make it up to Epic, however work is intense at the moment and getting out of the office might be a problem.

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    I will be picking up the beans for the T5 pickup on friday morning. I cannot make it to the friday afternoon EPIC pickup so I cannot take any leftovers to the saturday pickup.

    So if you cannot make it to the EPIC pickup and want to pickup from T5 on saturday, then you need to let me know as soon as possible. (Any time up to about 12 noon on the friday)

    cheers

    Re: BeanBay June - Perth Pickup

    Terry, the coffee was amazing, the affogato unbelievable and Grendels signature drinks worth a trademark!!

    Thank you so very much for making us travellers so welcome in your midst...
    it was great meeting you all.

    We will be leaving Perth in the first week of July, slowly making our way down South on our way back to Albury, and eventually over to Tasmania.

    Any CSs in Albany, Esperance, Norseman, Kalgoorlie/Coolgardie wanting to meet up for a few shots, PM me...
