Would love to come, but don't think I could take that much time away early next week.   :'(

KK (and anyone else) you're welcome to stop by here on the way back.

Feeling much much better today.  Finally have energy.  KK, If you haven't found a suitable courier do you want to organise a time at Pioneer again?

that was the plan, I can deliver whatever you want

do you have a spare 58mm tamper?  they only will give a plastic one with the machine.

Very much appreciated C-man
The item is at Lacehims place it's one item of classic hi fi gear 

Sorry I don't have a spare tamper I just have one only

When are you planing to make the trip down ?

C-Man,

PM me when you've fixed a date with KK.  You can pop over for a coffee and pick up the real to real.  It's heavy, but not that big!

I don't have a tamper, but I'm sure Chris would bundle one for you.  Otherwise check out the coffee forums, our sponsors, ebay.  Coffee2Di4 has an ESPRO 58mm CONVEX TAMPER for $80.00 on CS.  Just remember to haggle! ;)

A tamper is a very personal thing, what some like others don't so I would suggest you pickup a few and see how they feel in your hand when your visiting Brisbane. :)

If I go and if KK is busy I could just leave the real-to -real at the coffee place maybe?

Lacey- will it fit in the boot of a MX5?  thinking of taking the wife's car to save on fuel

I am pretty bad navigating in the city, most likely get lost.

So everyone agrees that I should buy either the BZ02 or Kelsey's old BZ09?

that's a thumbs up?

I may go tomorrow (Friday)

That's a thumbs up for Fryday mate (remember they open on Saturday by appointment only)
I will meet you at the time you arrive and we can have a play with a few machines and if you have time we can fire up the Barazi demo KKTO for a roast on the spot

If you get lost we are only a phone call away
But it's not hard to get to Coopers Plains and Lacehim has driven the route several times so when you meet with him just ask him on the most direct route

I would always choose a HX over a single boiler but your best bet is to have a play and see what works for you. http://www.bestcafes.com.au/forum/espresso-machines/bezzera-bz02/

Any plans to pick up a R2R KK?  Or have you found another mule yet?

I think C-Man might have been barred from viewing expensive shiny things! ;)
