Farm Life at Espresso Unplugged HQ

Tractor moving a pallet of ROK espresso makers

How do you move a pallet of ROK espresso makers at Espresso Unplugged HQ? You rally the troops and fire up the tractor.

I loved getting these photos from Greg this morning after he didn’t answer my phone call. The photos said it all – “Mate, I can’t take your call, I’m on a bloody tractor”. It seems like there’s always something out of the ordinary happening up at the farm.
