    Adelaide Pickup - July 2007

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This is the thread for banter about the Adelaide pickup.

    I would hope that the beans will be in Adelaide by Saturday 15th July.

    The BeanBay pickup point option will look like:

    ADELAIDE - Simply Coffee
    13/07/2007 9:00-5:00


    I took a punt and guessed at the venue and the time.
    If you need to change it do so in this thread so others know what is going on.

    sigh... one in every crowd.

    (besides, its far too cold, wet and wintery to be bobbing around in a punt tonight)

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - July 2007

    Good News everybody.

    I have just had a call from Peter at Simply Coffee to say out beans etc have arrived.

    So, would people like to have a meet up next Saturday as planned? I am guessing that tomorrow is a bit to sudden for most of us (and the weather is crap).

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - July 2007

    I am happy either way.
    I know you might have to walk further than some us Cindy so if you would rather leave for next Sat thats fine with me.
    Its not like I NEED the beans. ::)
    It has been raining the last 2 or 3 times I have picked up beans and I only have to walk to the car so it doesnt bother me.

    Next Sat should be fine with us.

    Grey, do you still want the decaf I mentioned last time? If so, will
    bring it along.

    I should be able to get there.

    I have a Tupperware party (again) at 1, so hopefully OG will be able to come to. Shall we all meet between 10-11?

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - July 2007

    Ok... so its looking like Im going to be in Adelaide on Saturday morning, and more than likely looking for a decent coffee, as Ill not be tripping about with my kit ::)

    Is it a fair assumption that Simply Coffee is a good option (all be it appearing to be a lengthy walk from my hotel? Ill be up the other end of North Terrace) ... so what other options have I ???

    Mj.

    Mj,
    You are welcome to join us but otherwise the CIBO chains are usually quite good, as is Ciao in Adelaide Arcade.

    MJ Simply Coffee is pretty easy to get to. I am assuming you are at the hotels near the railway station?

    Jump on the 99C free bus (NOT the 99B) at the railway station and get off it on the the stop after the Royal Adelaide Hospital/Botanic gardens.

    Then all you need to do is walk up Rundle Road through the parklands, cross at the lights and continue walking up Rundle street - about 5 - 10 minutes.

    You assume correctly Lucinda... thanks for the directions... if the other half is feeling energetic it looks like about a 40-50 min walk through the mall etc so we might see you all there... or not... my other half loves to run but hates to walk... go figure???

    I walk to there from Grenfell St near Regent Arcade in about 15 mins.
