    Hopefully Simply coffee is the go again, its out of my way but a detour dosent take me that long.

    Of course Peter should be happy to acept the deliveries, Ive been there 3 times so far and purchased something each time. If all coffeesnobs are like me hes doing quite well out of this. ;)

    Got in early and grabbed some decaf, missed out last time.

    Peter is happy for you to pick your beans anytime during business hours but generaly the local CSrs pick a time so they can all meet and have a coffee and a chat.

    Dr T generally we pick a Saturday morning between 10 and 11 for a get together. Depending on when they arrive.

    eg If the beans arrive next week we could meet between 10 and 11 next saturday the 28th.

    Nice to see you on here btw.

    Yes - its been a while since I last wrote in, guilty as charged.

    Various other things have taken alot of time away from me. Perhaps these could be discussed over said coffee if anyone is interested?! Pipe band stuff and what-not.

    Guess what though - no Sunbeam problems anymore !!

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - after 27th July

    Ah, no.

    It turned out that my EM6900 had problems, and they were subsequently fixed.

    It also turned out my EM0480 had burrs that were more or less substandard. This was fixed by a new machine.

    Moral of the story - when you get equipment that is not made properly, you have every reason to expect it to go bung.

    Other moral of the story, trust Sunbeam only as far as you can throw them since in their minds eye, both machines had nothing wrong with them to begin with...

    Oh and yes, no coffee snob complaint story could be complete without roaster problems. Yep, been down that path too with no response from the seller, one of the forum sponsors....

    Still, looking forward to the new beans!

    with no response from the seller, one of the forum sponsors....
    I would guess (and HOPE) that the email went astray or similar... the forum sponsors should all keep you in the loop during any warranty queries.

    Please try again, if you are still having grief let me know (email is best) and Ill give them a gentle nudge too.

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - after 27th July

    Not to hijack the thread Andy, but my dealings with the sponsor in question over the phone and e-mail have been less than satisfactory so it is of no consequence to me whether they reply (eventually) or not about my roaster problems. I fixed it myself with some really good advice from fellow snobs!!

    Many thanks for the concern though.

    Adelaide people,
    It seems our beans have been shipped. They should arrive this week sometime so would you all like to get together at Simply coffee Saturday morning between 10 and 11?

    Ill not be there this week :(
    Was fun meeting you all at Simply Coffee whilst doing a whirlwind trip to Adelaide.
    Been quite busy this last week with a new client so this is the first opportunity Ive had to pop in.

    Enjoy the new beans !!!

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - after 27th July

    Hello mj, pity you cant make it, its only a two hour flight you know :)
    It was a lively discussion we had last time, a pleasure to meet you
    and your wife!

    DrT, disappointed to hear about your lack of progress with the iRoast.
    Would have thought the top flying off would be an obvious warranty
    fixup; doesnt send a good message I think. It seems youve fixed it
    but nonetheless here is a more recent pic of how someone else solved
    the problem: http://tinyurl.com/3ala86

    Back on topic. We should be able to make it this Sat. Seems like only
    yesterday that we had the last one :)

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - after 27th July

    MJ. it was great to see an interstate coffeesnob.

    Grey you can always tell your wife you got her some chocolate and just conveniently forget you got some beans too ;D It works well for me.

    Hopefully OG is not working sat and not in a hurry to get to an art supplies shop like he was last time. i am supposed to be going to a friends place at sometime so we be a quick in and out for me too.

    Re: Adelaide Pickup - after 27th July

    So the consensus is 10-11 am this Saturday?

    May have to cut it short though since the Mrs and I are off to a Rabbit show the same day, immediately afterwards in fact.

    No, we dont feed our rabbits green beans !

    Peter rang this afternoon to confirm they have arrived so we will definitely be there. I just have to drag OG out of bed and get him moving.

    Hi all,

    You dont know me cause this will only be my second order (and first posting), but I hope to be there for the pickup tomorrow as well. Hoping to get some roasting tips cause so far my efforts have been...well less than ideal. Mmm, that charcoal flavour again!

    Yes, good to welcome Intercoff, another budding roaster here I think.

    We missed the bagpipes but Peters Yirg was really singing so that
    almost made up for it :)

    KJM nearly made it also but got fed to the Lions instead. But now
    I have his chocolate ....

    Im sure we all have enough greens to tide us over until the
    next one.

    I had to make it quick so you guys did indeed miss the bagpipes. I dont think you missed all that much however....
