Jeez, isn't coffee a tropical crop? I think limited to northern Qld etc if at all in Aust. wouldn't it be? I wouldn't have thought there would be any way short of a lit & heated greenhouse to get it to grow in Tassie and that would be very expensive. That ad was probably just for Tassie roasted coffee.
K Bean, been looking around your site. The Profitec 800 does look nice. Also seen that the (much more expensive - around $9000) ACS Vostok 1 group is coming soon (pre sales on some sites). Then I saw the ACS Vesuvius for under $4800 and it's interesting, but the Home Barista review didn't compare it well against the Profitec 700, but I suspect a bit of fiddling with the profiles may have changed that result.
