K Bean on The Block

by Paul Sadler

K Bean on The Block - WOW!!! 

It started with a text from a guy called “Hans" saying that he wanted an Italian coffee machine for The Block. And not just any Italian coffee machine. He really wanted a Profitec Pro 500 because of it’s good looks. 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 coffee machine just a few days earlier. I had more units due the next week but that was too late for Hans and Courtney. After a few calls I tracked down a unit 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 challenge.    

When I arrived at The Block it was madness. It was the final day of the 12 week season and the place was just buzzing - 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, see it grow, and to get a little gig on a top rating show like The Block - just amazing. A huge thanks to Hans and Courtney for giving me a very cool TV experience.

And congrats to Hans and Courtney for winning Challenge Week with an amazing kitchen. I like to think that their excellent Italian coffee machine choice may have helped to get them over the line. Below are some screen shots from the Challenge Apartment, The Block 2018, Gatwick Hotel. St Kilda.
