K Bean Coffee Machines on The Block

by Paul Sadler

K Bean Coffee Machines on The Block - WOW!!!  It started with a text from a guy called "Hans" saying he was on Channel 9's The Block and wanted a Profitec Pro 500 coffee machine for their kitchen for 2018 Season's "Challenge Week." And no, not just any Italian coffee machine. He really wanted a Profitec because he had seen one and noticed that it was very, very good looking. After a quick chat with Hans I knew it wasn't some prank and I was ready to join the challenge.  

I had sold my last Profitec Pro 500, including my own home machine, just a few days earlier. I had more units due the next week but that was too late as Challenge Week for The Block ended the very next day. After a few calls I tracked down a Profitec Pro 500 but it was on the other side of Melbourne, so I set out for on a 3 hour round trip. I really was part of The Block's time challenge.

When I arrived at The Block (Gatwick Hotel, St Kilda) it was just madness. A hive of activity with tradies, contestants and TV people just everywhere. They miked me up and then I went about meeting Hans and the team, then walked the gear in and set it all up in a very dusty, almost complete kitchen.

An amazing day and a very proud day for me. What a cool thing it is to create a hobby business and see it grow, and to get a little gig on a top rating show like The Block - just amazing.

Thanks again to all of you guys who love my K Bean, and look out for me on Channel 9's The Block. 2018 Season, Gatwick Hotel, St Kilda. Airing in week 12 ...and good luck from me to the "Hans & Courtney" team !!!
