    Sorry, Bizzos Id host if I had my own place. Maybe someday.

    If there is anyone interested in going 50/50 on some African Red Drinking Chocolate or Viet Robusta with me, PM me and well arrange to split it at the pickup.

    ok, did anyone volunteer for the pickup point here in Brissie?

    its just I would like to place an order for some brown & collect as opposed to post, as long as it wasnt half way to the Gold Coast or further! :-/

    Alrighty if people dont mind coming to Narangba id be happy to have it here.
    Or I could bring the beans down to Shots Coffee at burpengary if we set a time say 11 oclock on the given date, through lack of a decent machine at the minute at least this way we could enjoy a Coffee.

    ...not unless someone is offering to move the beans from one spot to the other.

    We will only ship a single lot into Brissy this month (ie: most of it is already packed) and when the late payments come through we will get the courier to pick it up and send it.... somewhere!

    :)

    Re: Brissy Pickup - after 27th July

    Did we get a definite pick up point here?

    Im happy to have it here (at Everton Park on the northside) but I probably wont be home this week when the beans come.

    Sorry to come into this so late but Ive been away.

    Re: Brissy Pickup - after 27th July

    Well, Im happy with wherever, but therell always be someone home here to recieve the beans.

    On the other hand, the espresso will be better at Belindas *:P Carezza/EMO480 doesnt really compare to a Expobar/Campak *;D I still make a pretty mean ristretto tho *;)

    If youve been silent so far, tell us whered be best for u and well get this thing decided ;)

    Re: Brissy Pickup - after 27th July

    I suggest Belindas as well.
    I believe there may be another "game" planned for us to play so better to put the Expobar to good use.
    It will also give any one a chance to see the "Corretto" in all its glory.
    Not necessarily under combat conditions just to admire.

    Cheers,
    Ken.

    Hey, how did your Yemens go Ramking? Mine were AWESOME, got the same E=mc^2 effect as I did with Andys batch :P Took em pretty slow in the poppers, 2nd crack at around 15 mins. Huge, complex, spiced flavours - what a bean!

    Re: Brissy Pickup - after 27th July


    Im fine with a pickup at Belindas, but my place is still available as a backup. There should be someone around for the delivery next week.

    Maybe we should try and sort this out well ahead of the next bean bay, to save the confusion that Andys probably going through.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Yes, this is fine with me.

    Say a time of around 1100 - 1200 ish for pickup Sat 28th July.

    Maybe we can come up with a basic roster and take turns or something?

    I see there are a few Brissie CSers here at the moment.
    I wonder what task Andy will have for us this time....

    3feet can you help me carry the beer fridge out while Sparky distracts Belinda???

    Sarg hopefully we can still chat about the Aussies being in the Cup.

    Daveze if youre coming perhaps you can bring the Presso for another play.

    Cheers,
    Ken

    I do miss it somewhat, what I dont miss are the hills and the insane street runs to get from A to B.

    I knew a sparky named Mark over there years ago too.

    Slightly OT but there was a story going around of a Swiss road planning expert out here on a fact finding junket.He was being driven through Toowong and when they turned into Miskin St from the high side he screamed because he thought they were driving off a cliff.
    Sounds like an urban myth but worth a chuckle.

    Now back On topic...Meg were you able to grab some Decaf???

    Belinda and Mark please let me know if I can help transporting the precious cargo.
    I promise there will be no unscheduled detours.

    Cheers,
    Ken.

    Hey Sparky, did Andy give us any mystery beans this time :P?

    Belinda, will the pickup be at 11-12 as you said in an earlier post? Would you be able to PM us with your address?

    On another note, I finally went to Naked Coffee in Elizabeth today. Wow, awesome coffee! The first espresso (drinkable) Ive ever tried in a Brisbane cafe. They used a Campos blend: PNG, Sulawesi K, Ethiopian. Anyone else been there?
