A shout-out

Massive kudos to Nim for getting me one of the ACF cappuccino cups from Justin and Marsha at Supreme. I've actually not yet made the trip to go meet those two - it's on the the "to do" list.

In other news, I'm entering the month-long exam prep time, so, unfortunately, my updates are going to be sporadic. Sorry to disappoint my avid fans. Both of you ;P

This weekend is going to feature two belated birthday dinners. At Toshi's recommendation, the guys on Saturday are getting Sihereni through Vac Pot. Sunday are getting Bundja.

Hey mate,
Been a while. If you have good tips on where I should get a great cup in Brisbane, let me know!

Hey Brett, 'sup?

At the international catering trade fair, I manned the barista guild stand with John from Naked Coffee (http://www.nakedcoffee.com.au/) ... he's a pretty awesome barista, so I'd go check them out.

The guys from Pioneer (http://www.coffeeroastery.com.au/) have done some bean swaps with us, which has been interesting. Worth checking out if you're ever in Yandina ;P I think that they recently opened up a shop in the airport, though, so that might be right up your alley.

From what I hear, there's a lack of good coffee in sunny QLD, so maybe that's the start of the next world domination plot ...

Hehehe, no probs, John,

I've still got to get up there and visit you.

We're still a few weeks off opening First Pour. Wallpaper is in; it's pretty cool. Almost as expensive as a grinder!

FB-80 is singing.

Gotta shoutout to the third peep at Supreme; Chris.

I want the demi cups - nice on the eyes and rounded interior base too!

Yo Luis! I'm most jealous of your travelling lifestyle... San Salvador one day, Long Beach the next... Copenhagen...

C'mon, you gotta hang out Down under/Awstralia! We're almost as funky as those Scandinavians... :p

Feliz navidad, L Rod!

I've been lucky this year with travelling... good times! but also you are more than welcome to come here whenever you want! keep in touch!
