    Brisbane Pickup - 31st August - Gilkatho

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    We expect to have the beans into Brissy before the 31st August.

    Wayne and the very friendly crew at Gilkatho have offered to meet the courier and look after the Brissy CSr payload. Check-out their range of superauto Jura goodness while you are there.

    Sorry for the delayed reply me hearties...

    For people who will have trouble picking up their beans from Gilkatho, Im happy to host the beanbay this time around on the Saturday (1st Sept?).

    The mighty Ken has offered to transport your beans in his stationwagon steed and deliver them to mine... if you want him to.

    I know I mentioned combining with a roast day but this might have to wait for a couple of months longer. Things are just a little too hectic to work out the logistics of a roast day just yet.

    Before you commit! Remember I live in Ipswich and I have no espresso machine (although you never know what generous person may offer to throw theirs in the boot for the trip) but I do make a mean cake (or two) ;)

    ALL would be welcome (kids as well) whether picking up beans or not.

    Any thoughts etc

    Meg

    We are looking forward to "the shipment" arriving. *

    We are at the office M-F 8:30 - 5pm if people want to call in then.

    Ken has made contact and well be looking forward to sending the beans west to Ipswich. Ipswich isnt such a bad place...I used to live there...

    New tonight: Here is a map for directions to our office.

    Thanks Wayne - we do appreciate this!

    Ipswich is a GREAT place.... :)

    its just a little far to travel for some - hence my qualifying statement!


    Is everyone cool with beanbay pick up at mine? Speak soon or forever hold yer piece (or is that peace?)! If so, youll have to let us know if you are coming. Im not sure Ken carting beans to my place when noone can pick them up is such a good idea.

    If you cant pick them up from mine then they are probably better off staying safe and warm at Gilkatho until you can collect. If thats okay with Wayne!

    Hi there,

    I think Ill pick up from Milton (a mix of brown & green for Rosemary Cole). Im not sure Ill have time to wing it to Ipswich, and I only live across the river on the Moggill Ferry.

    Thanks for the offer of hosting Meg. I would have thrown (well trolleyd) my espresso machine in for the occasion too.

    regards
    Rose

    Sorry Meg, but this weekend is pretty booked up. That special day on Sunday you know.

    Ive just picked up my beans from Gilkatho this morning. I think they deserve a big thanks for offering to receive the beans. This makes the monthly bean bay deliveries much easier for Andy to organise and it shouldnt be too hard for someone on our end to sort out the rest.

    I hope those that make it to Megs have a great time and enjoy the cakes and coffee.

    Bring on the roasting day.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Hi Meg,
    Reading the above reminded me that I should have told you that I had also collected mine from Gilkatho, as I had occasion to go into Brisbane the other day.

    A big thank you to the folks at Gilkatho for receiving and looking after the BeanBay shipment *this month.
    Thanks Wayne, Liz and Melanie much appreciated and that syrup hit the spot too.

    Thanks to Meg for allowing us to invade her home again,force feeding us that lovely choc cake and not minding the mess we made.
    Well it was Bruce who was mostly responsible for the mess ;D..good thing he got the coffee right.

    Cheers until the roasting day,
    Ken.

    Yes, a big thankyou to Gilkatho and a big big thankyou to Meg for hosting a wonderful gathering. Much imbibing took place of coffee naturally, and I also discovered a love of cheeses. Maybe its Cheese Snobs next?

    A big thanks to Ken also for the transporting of beans and supplying once again of the BZ machine - which was responsible for a big buzz for the rest of the day/night :D and I thought I would need another caffeine hit ......

    Comiserations to all those who could not make it out west. Maybe next time ;)

    Hi Guys

    It was lovely to meet everyone who came to Gilkatho and picked up their beans. There are just two left for pickup some Decaf (Mocha Java) and a Brazil Yellow Bourbon.

    I didnt want to write names dont want to expose anyones names ;-)

    We are happy to keep them here until you are ready to pick them up just thought I would post a reminder.

    If the two remaining people need to contact me, my number is 3876 1210.

    Thanks

    Mel

    Well…..The thanks you get for going to some effort, humph.
    I would just like to add my thanks to Meg for hoasting, Ken for playing delivery boy, and Gilkatho for receiving.
    See you all when my pile shrinks a bit further.

    Sorry about the tardy response, but I have decided to give my course another go, and so have been playing catch up.

    Hi Bruce,
    Youre not fooling anyone.
    As soon as you hear the sirens song(Andys tasting notes) youll be grabbing more beans at the next BeanBay just like me... ;)
    Theres always room to store more greenies....just throw out those non essential items like clothing,food etc.
    Good luck with the study too.
    Cheers,
    Ken.

    Hi from Switzerland Brisbane Coffee Snobs!

    Its Italian Switzerland so decided to try an espresso at a local bar for the hell of it, and was rubbish :P So just bought a popper and nice grinder. Dunno how the popper will cope in the cold, snowy winter though. People in my apartament building will start wandering around tracking the roasting smells ;)

    Ciao,
    Richy

    Hi Richy,

    I think sub-standard coffee is a small price to pay for living in the yodelling capitol of the world. I would think that at this time of year the hills would be alive with the sound of music, and not so much snow. In any case, skiing Switzerland is a great experience and so is the after ski schnapps. All in all, I find it hard to pity your plight.

    At least you got to indulge in the Yemeni before you left.

    Enjoy it over there. It should be a great life experience. (yes Im jealous)

    Cheers,

    Mark.
