Hi Pat,
I believe we've met actually, did you have foxy brown in Northcote? I was friends with one of the baristas, I'm from hawke's bay if that jogs the memory.  I have a bfc dual boiler, currently paired with a robur. I've been through single boilers & commercial machines but I think the bfc will stay for a long while. Also have a moccamaster, hario syphon, chemex etc you could say I'm a bit of a nut!

Roasting on a correto,using a Bosch gun and breville big loaf, I'm pushing 1kg roasts, but can also go as low as 600g.(maybe lower, never tried). Have considered building a kkto but, irrational as it sounds, I don't want to learn a new roasting process.

Welcome SD
A KKTO can be used with a heat gun if you wish
Due to the flow through design of the heat source and better agitation you get a better more even roast

So when the BM breaks down you can build a KKTO  :thumb:

Hi Brett and Coffee Forum community,

Thanks for the welcome! And thanks KK and A. from admin for setting it all up, much appreciated. :)
Apologies for the delay but I am now up and running and look forward to this new venture.

I'm in my early 30's and have been in the coffee/cafe industry for a little over 8 years.
The necessity for work whilst at uni was what started me on this little coffee journey.
I think it is a great industry and community and look forward to getting to know you all.


Cheers!

Hello to all,
Okay, I am a naive late starter, in south east Qld that is going into the coffee business, because it is a passion and a longing.
What I am hoping to find on this forum is a "Mentor" for my mobile business. I am aware of the pitfalls (well a lot of them) and the amount of hard work I am going to have to put in and although this is daunting, it is not too scary  ???. The scary part is the actual start up and all the hoops I have to jump through(some of those hoops are flaming).  :head:
I am determined for this venture to work because I want it to.... so very much.
Anyhoo, if there is some kind soul that will take pity on a poor, knowledge hungry, passionate, mature age entrepreneur, my (currently exploding) mind will be so very grateful.
Just askin'  ;D
Cheers
Dizzy  :coffee2:

Hi DizzBean, welcome to the forum; it's been a little quiet over the Xmas/New Year period but there are plenty of people who can help answer various coffee questions, although am less certain about the number of members who have a mobile coffee business... anyway feel free to ask questions; am sure we'll be able to help with most things coffee-related!

I can probably help out in a roundabout way
My extended family have run cafes and fast food for decades

But that depends on your location because I am in Brisbane

Thank you so much for the replies, I am happy to devour any advice that is thrown my way (buckets full are welcome).  ;D
I am situated half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast so pretty close to you Koffee Kosmo.
I am not familiar with forums as I rarely have much to say (except my worldly wisdom) so, lets just assume that I am completely clueless and tell me just how one would go about PM'ing someone here please.
Otherwise post your infinite wisdom on here and I shall wait with baited breath (never really understood that analogy  ::) )
Cheers

Hi dizz we're all constantly learning no matter where we are at in our coffee journey !

To PM someone you can click on the envelope icon under their name on one of their pets or else click through to their profile details and do the same

Hi. I'm in Northern Tasmania near Launceston. Started four years ago with a Jura Ena One Touch (convenient, but weak). Have also had a Sunbeam 6910 which I eventually got to produce decent coffees by chucking the grinder that comes with it for a Breville SmartGrinder.

Now a Breville Oracle. I roast in a Behmor 1600, getting very good results.

Getting upgraditis and looking at good lever machines - up to the new fancy profiling machines. I really only make one or two coffees in a session (at most twice a day).

Welcome mate!  Can you tell me... is coffee actually grown in Tasmania?   You see there is a local business here in Brisbane advertising Tasmanian coffee.   There no roast date but also no information about the provenance.  I'm not interested In stale coffee but the assertion intrigues me.  Welcome!
