Hi Rin. It will be great to see you set up in Penrith. Look forward to calling in to buy some coffee. Let me know when the roastery is open. Good luck with everything. David

Wow! We've done it! Thank you all so much for helping reach target. The target now gets stretched for a day so I can raise more towards the cost of the roaster without penalty. I'm so excited that you've been a part of this project - Incredible generosity. It may be a wee while before the rewards get to you, but I'll contact you all to let you know things are on their way. Similarly, the 10 people who are on the cupping sessions, will be contacted re: dates and venue (Wembley is not an option). xxxx

Good Luck Rin! Would pledge more if I could - but have been tweeting about your project to help you reach your goal

Good luck Rin! I am trying to start my own business also and know how tough it can be. Wish I had more to pledge but I hope you make your target!!

Dear Rin Really hope this venture takes off for you, and look forward to sharing a coffee with you in due course . Eddie Czestochowski .... And you thought Colombi was difficult.

Thanks to everyone who's donated on day 1. Great start - although it looks like I donated to myself, monsieur Martin Kirton is round at my house and pledged on my computer, but didn't realise I was logged in. Begs the question: Do I look dodgy?
