How much fun was our Pie Eating Competition last Saturday?! We had a ball! Congrats to our Champion CFA member on gutsing 7 pies in 30 minutes! Big effort! That’s 1.6kg of pie meat and pastry…. and no bucket needed! With the support of our contstants sponsors and generous donaters we raised just over $2000 for the Romsey Play Connect and Macedon Ranges Autism Support Network! Well done to all involved, awesome work!

Have you heard the latest news?

The ‘Suspended Coffee’ idea has been around for years overseas and is now taking off here in Australia, and we are proud to be a supporter! In fact at this stage, I think we are the only cafe in the Macedon Ranges area! It’s been all over the media like a hot rash! Ten news aired a story last night, the age and social media are getting behind this also with stories advertising cafe owners showing their support!

The idea of suspending coffee reminds me a little of the Apple iCloud- Pay for a suspended coffee, the coffee goes into the iCloud and when those less fortunate are in need of a hot beverage, we are able to pull it down from the iCloud and offer them the suspended coffee, bought and paid for by a total stranger.

We urge you to all get on board and support this. Perhaps next time you can spare a few bucks, put it towards a suspended coffee.¬†Just a little human kindness can make a big difference in somebody else’s life.
