    “Bad coffee hinders fellowship,” she says. “Especially for newcomers.”
    That is a great quote!


    But the prize for coffee central goes to Moore College for using coffee machines that grind beans on the spot.
    We have at least one home roaster with a Moore College address... I suspect you could follow your nose on site.

    ;)

    Yeah the beans we used last night were roasted on the roof top of one of the Moore college dorms.

    Yeah I thought you were Ben. Yeah its the Lovell Roasters (John & Aidrian), theyve got their website up and running now. I go to church with Adrian Lovell. Good stuff, really fresh, went well with the milk. We used the Royal Blend... I think they roast it on a bbq roaster from memory. You should drop in and get some from them. They are in the residence on Little Queen St, Newtown. Theyre no big outfit, but their primary purpose is to supply the students with good coffee at cheap prices.

    John Lovell? Hes 2 seats beside me in class! Was just asking to see what you thought of his blend... Im a fan!

    I get beans from him all the time and have been using his corretto recently, which he has no need for since he upgraded to 2xBBQ roasters...

    Haha, yeah, I didnt get to try too much of the coffee as I had to serve it out and we only had 250gs. of the Royal Blend. The shot I had though was great... even for the first shot... more of a tighter pour, the one I had, was great though - def. a fan. At the end of the night there was only enough for a single shot(maybe) and I didnt have any baskets. Ill have to actually get some next roast and do some proper testing.
