    It says

    Why our Coffee?
    Fresh, high quailty coffee beans, roasted and blended locally, especially for our cafe, by master roaster Andy Freeman of coffeesnobs.com.au on of the worlds most popular coffee sites.
    So... risk a coffee in a fish and chip shop?
    You could, you know!

    Master Roaster 8-)

    Sounds like the old but wise master from one of those classic Kung Fu movies. I wonder if a gong sounds every time he enters the roasting room and if he can jump backwards from the ground onto the roof. ;D

    "Ha Ha, I laugh at your Coretto for it is no match for my Hans Garanti"

    Ok someones gotta get some video fotage of Andy speaking, esp if he is near coffee beans or his new roaster, dub that speech with some old king fu movies, if someone can get the footage Id be happy (all in good fun and no offence Andy!) try and dub it....
    Few weeks ago he was Prime Minister elect, now kung fu master?
    What next?

    Instant coffee? a Jedi Craves not these things......

    Its a great sign Craig, made my day. ;)

    All this talk of gongs is interesting. I have said a few times that The Snobbery is my "Zen place". It is somewhere that has no internet, no phone (except my mobile which has an OFF button) and I can "be one with the beans" there.
    :)

    but the jury is out on the sci-fi theme Sullo (not really me).

    ...next?

    Re: Its a sign!

    Andy has his own personal R2D2. I wonder if it comes with a secret message. Have you seen anything strange when dumping the beans there Andy? Perhaps a message trying to materialize in the beans as they get stirred, or maybe an image forming in the exhaust smoke. :-?

    In that case Andy I am thinking more along the lines of a Buddhist monk,

    segregated from the displeasures of every day life in a cave somewhere mountainous.

    meditating on the bean its properties and the brew.

    chanting.......................the bean the roast the grind the pour over and over.

    Meditate on the bean just a single bean you will be one with the bean my son!!!!

    BEAN hmmmmmmmmmmmm now THATS another post!

    You are of course saved as the Dalai llama is in geelong this week.

    Re: Its a sign!

    Im thinking more of a Kung Fu kind of deal.

    So.. Grasshopper. To know true enlightenment, you must snatch the Yemen Ismali bean from my palm before I can close it, then carry the roasting wok with your forearms to burn the CS logo into your skin and then walk across the drying JBM beans without disturbing any.

    THEN.. you will be.... a Master Roaster!
