    Sounds like youd better get down to Yandina, poddy. I think it would only be about an hour from you.

    Hey poddy,

    Melbourne has regular get togethers over their Bean bay pickup.

    Sydney is a bit more sporadic with get togethers.

    In QLD, Pioneer Roastery at Yandina has had a couple of CS events.

    If you have a look at the News section, you should see that there may be a get together in your area sometime soon. Look under the QLD roast off topic.

    Ah, Yandina is a bit further than I thought from Hervey Bay. We used to go to Tin Can Bay from Eumundi, I think it would take us about an hour and a half.

    Re: any coffee snobs in hervey bay

    Hey Poddy, Im in Bundaberg a bit over an hour north of Hervey Bay. I am heading to yandina to pioneer roastery this coming sunday for a coffee snobs roast off. I dont see it being a problem for you guys to come along to it.

    I have seven children, my 3 little ones are with my separated and quite possibly soon to be divorced wife and I have the four older ones which are a bit older than yours though.

    I am quite a social person loving to sample lots of coffee. What sort of espresso machine and grinder are you running, I could probably cruise by one day when Im looking for something to do, not that I need an excuse or a reason for coffee sampling.

    Or you guys could drop in here if you like, I have a reasonable set up here and am sure I could shake your taste buds up a bit with a nice yirg or kenya or wahgi or kaapi or tanzanian or columbian etc etc etc .......... and the list goes on.......

    Ray.

    Re: any coffee snobs in hervey bay

    You dont need to be sorry Scoota Its not your fault...... The biggest pain for me is seeing the affect its having upon my children, it just cuts me up to no end, they are completely innocent and its just not fair on them......... What sort of bike is it that you ride, I have a 1985 VF 1000 F2 honda, I bought it for my 40th several years back slotted some very hot cams and a few other mods into it, goes like a cut cat, theres not much that will keep up with it, I have a couple of mates that I ride with who are cops and really struggle with my disregard for the speed limit although they will also have a bit of a go themselves, I think its just because they cant catch me.
    Anyway its all good, "everyday above ground is a good day"

    Hi Javanation!

    There used to be a little coffee shop in Bourbong Street in Bundy called "Indulge"
    I am not sure if it is there still. (It was in August last year when I was there!)

    Fabulous coffee and great atmosphere.

    -Linda

    Re: any coffee snobs in hervey bay

    Yes Indulge is still there, you can also try another place called "our place your place" they get their coffee freshly roasted by a local bloke called alec he owns coast coffee and has the whole range of beens as well so needless to say they serve up fresh coffee unless their gino rossi is set on auto and the doser is full of ground coffee going stale, which unfortunately they all do.
    Then theres my place I can grind on demand and am happy to sample coffee with you and of course theres no charge for it. Maybe you can give me a pm or email when you will have time to spare and are coming this way.

    Ray.

    Re: any coffee snobs in hervey bay

    gee guys, i wish i had looked here sooner... I do a week a month "on-call" so guess what? yes, thats my oncall week... oh well, Im sure you will have a great time and there will be other chances for get togethers. Ill also have to clear the schedule with the mrs.. youngest son, 11yrs, plays soccer saturdays too.. :(

    Scoota, yes, I have had a coffee at Indulge, its still there and quite the cafe...

    and Ray, I havent been to "our place your place" but will look for it because I met Alec a few weeks ago he blew my mind when he told me he had 17000 coffee trees and a 30kg roaster..

    cheers

    Hi Ian, I personally dont think the local stuff is much chop compared to the high grown imported africans, indonesians etc...
    but I can tell you that Alec knows what hes doing with his roasting and marketing the local area, he has quite a name for himself and a passion for coffee as well, not to mention good service. One of my daughters used to work for "our place your place" and one of the girls there also worked for Alec for a while, so they (our place your place) and coast coffee has a close relationship although He supplies a wide area, but still has time to service anyone no matter how small the order.
