    New Talk Coffee site.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    Now that the body of work is complete, I would greatly appreciate any feedback or general comments CS'ers have.

    Let me know if you find any more bugs which need to be squashed.

    Enjoy the browse!

    Try removing the 700 weight you have on the BebasNeue font in your headings - you'll see it looks far classier at a lower weight. Linux and Mac get away with it but on Windows your smaller headings let down an otherwise nice looking site.

    The left is how your site displays on Windows Chrome. The right with a lower weight.

    New Talk Coffee site.

    I always think its a good idea to have a link at the bottom of a mobile site leading to the standard version. Mobile versions are all well and good, but sometimes you also want to look at the full site.

    Of course it's possible that the link is there and I just missed it

    Not quite sure what you're on about... it looks fine on Chrome running on Windows 7 and, though not quite as good, it's fine on Explorer as well

    G'day Chris,

    Just spent some time checking out your new site, I'm impressed.

    Tried to send you a message in the (contact us page) received message "There was a problem with your submission. Errors have been highlighted below." nothing highlighted, tried to resend, no joy.

    Used the stay in touch box on the home page, worked fine, got a confirm subscription email which I responded to.

    Cheers,

    Yelta.

    Looks good Chris,
    In the 'in home training manual' page, there's a schedule of end of day / week maintenance routines, which includes 3 backflush operations. The first and third operation indicate whether they are 'daily' or 'weekly' routines, but the 2nd operation ('10 x 3 seconds') is a touch ambiguous.

    I can sort of see what Simonko is saying about the font weight. I'm using Windows 7 on a widescreen laptop monitor. Perhaps the aspect ratio affects how people perceive that font.

    Cheers
    BOSW.

    Thanks Barry! We'll take as much on board as we possibly can.

    I have modified the training noted based on your comments.

    Just a little thing, when you hit the 'read more' button on the Gene Cafe and Behmor, the writing is squashed up and half of the line with the prince has disappeared. Sorry, I'm not techy enough to capture a screen shot :-(
    Apart from that tiny thing, the site looks great and its easy to navigate around. Nice work.

    In the 'In Home Training Manual':

    3rd paragraph - "millky" - spelling mistake

    Beginning of the Day section, point 3 - "(including a delay of about 5-9 (dependent on machine) seconds after operating the machine." - Two open brackets with only one close bracket

    Texturing Milk myths section, 6th dot point - "
    sholuld" - spelling mistake

    Affogatto section - "
    (try with a dash of caramel to taste)." - missed capital letter.

    Great looking site.
    Only read the one section so far. I will let you know what other things I find as I read more. My brain seems to be well tuned to seeing spelling mistakes.

    I checked the naked portafilters and they seem to all be $123 and out of stock. Something doesn't seem right with that. Good looking retro styling on the site.

    Thanks Caelblue1. All fixed. They actually start at $60 so that was one of my better goofs

    I have the same issue with the font as simonko, but just on the buttons

    I know what the text says but there is a bit too much weight on that text compared to the description of the items

    otherwise looks nicely done mate

    Fantastic looking site... check your RRP for Mazzer Super Jolly Electronic... looks like RRP for non-electronic version.

    Thanks for that kwantfm. Fixed.

    Thanks phrosty and Mal for the feedback as well. Positive or less than positive, it's greatly appreciated. We have lightened some of the font weights are are happy with the look now. We realise that everyone has an opinion and we won't please everyone, but cest la vie

    This is just the beginning for this new site and there is more to come. We'll evolve with time.

    Chris

    Just a comment on beans.
    If you go to the major link for Coffee Beans, you get an explanation of weights and postage etc.
    However, if you choose a coffee from a link on the right side of a page, on some of them, there is nothing in the bean description or cart to tell you how much (weight) you are purchasing. Just a price.
    I find that confusing from a buyers perspective.

    Thanks fb,

    The quantity is listed on each coffee in the header (unless I missed one). I'll have a think based on your comments.

    Chris,

    This is what I am referring to.
    Some of the coffees have 480G in the title, but P2 and Brazil Fazenda do not.
