Glad to hear you've hooked up with Rast. They're good roasters and very nice people.

Good luck with shop and your special event for Swiss coffee day. Looks like fun. I hope I can manage a visit to your shop on the 25th.

Wish we had a café like yours here in Berne!

There is at least one excelent coffee roaster in Switzerland.


Hi Fabien

Believe me there are more excellent roasters than just Rast in Switzerland. I know some nice roasters doing a very good job.

But no doubt, Rast does a good job too. For me personally they are roasting not bean specific enough and mostly a little bit too dark. I made a roasting course there and have some friends who worked there for a short while. Compared with other swiss roasters Rast is for sure in the top ten.

Yup but my purpleness is looking great. I had noticed that your beard (fur? :shock:) had developed a slight green tinge in your absence. Let that be a warning to all, prolonged abstinence from TMC and too much brain work turns you green! :P

Btw, Very cool monobrow though :D

Nahhh.. I'm green and my brain doesn't work. It seems that, around here, green is becoming the new ginger. Discrimination against, or ridicule of, greens will not be tolerated. :roll: :wink:

Around these parts we roast 'em.
Three Francesconi (CMA) espresso machines - Rossi, San Marco, LaCimbali, Faema and 2 Mazzer Major grinders- CoffeeTech Maggionlino, Hottop, Alpenröst and HW Precision roasters.
I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

As my favourite philosopher, singer/song writer and international superstar once said "it's not easy being green". :? :wink:
