    Poll for Next Month Beanbay pickup Western Sydney

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Im willing to be a pickup point for people in the west/northwest of Sydney, for next months Beanbay.

    I live in Carlingford, within two blocks of Carlingford station, for those who must rely on public transport. There is also a bus stop within two blocks from my house (buses coming from Parramatta station).

    I will be available for pickup most days before 1pm. Sunday/Monday Im available all day, unless I have something going on.

    While it may not be a CS gathering as such, it may be a more viable option for those who live out in the western fringes, rather than going all the way to the city.

    We need more than 5 to be considered a viable pickup point. Unless were getting at least 10kg each, I dont see it going ahead. Theres still plenty of time before the next Beanbay, so it still might go ahead.

    Can This poll/thread get a sticky so it doesnt have to be bumped please?

    I moved it into BeanBay banter... a better place for the discussion.

    I certainly would be happy to have a pickup in this area of Sydney, but personally I would rather see a an actual gathering. As I have found all the CS gatherings I have been apart of to be very enjoyable. If I read it right Nunu is not able to offer this, and fair enough. Would like to see it at a place where we could meet up though, even if that is a cafe. Unfortunately my current living arrangements dont allow for me to host something but I would be glad to help out in any way possible. Even if we met at a cafe that was easily accessible. Just an opinion and good on Nunu for putting a hand up and offering a possible pickup point.

    The biggest issue with organising a gathering/pickup is how available everyone is on a Sunday. I didnt consider a get together mainly because of the Sunday aspect.

    My main reason for offering was to give a bit of relief from having to travel a fair distance just to pick up coffee.

    Read over 100 times and still no votes. *Before you know it this thread will be at that magic 5 pages and still not resolved.

    The second delivery I took amounted to 1 carton and were mainly mine :). *Maybe Andy could advise what minumum total weight is required to make nunus a viable pick up point.

    Id be happy to pick up my lot from nunu and go on somewhere for a coffee or brunch, despite it being closer and easier for me to make other arrangements. *So maybe people from the Shire arent the real hobbits after all??? :P ;D

    Theres plenty of time for resolution, were still some ways from the next beanbay.

    The real problem is the quality of coffee in my neck of the woods. Brunch is easily taken care of. Having coffee that will satisfy a CS is another matter entirely.

    Im happy with the current arrangements myself, and have voted as such.

    If the alternate pickup isnt also a social event then im just as happy to collect from a sponsor.

    Well... the courier options are confusing at best, zone 1 plus 2 x regional b, plus a interstate 1hg7 for the first 15kg then a regional "c" and 4 standard stickers unless the cubic volume exceeds 0.8m then you need a volume multipier of 1.232.... you get the idea. Its not an obvious science with this mob but they are cheap.
    ;)

    25kg is about the mark into SYD (not the same for all states) and 27kg costs the same as the next bracket of 40kg.

    40kg in a single box costs less than 2 x 20kg boxes to the same address.

    Punchline is that 25-40kg is about the right amount for a courier option.

    So 5.CS x 5.KG each gets us to 25.Kg.

    I would certainly be interested but havent bought any greens for a while. I actually ordered 10Kg of coffee in the last poll last week, but my wife insisted that we use up the existing greens first :-(. Its been nearly a year with those but I recently graduated from popper roasting to a corretto, so Im getting through them a lot faster now than before so fingers crossed next month will be a goer.

    With 7 interested, each person needs to order at least 3.5kg of greens. Im good for 5kg at least.
