I have begun a roaster apprenticeship with Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea!
On day two I encounter -for what I then realize is the second time-Sr. Marty Curtis, who’s in town to complete the installation of our 40K Gothot’s destoner.  He’s a special breed of man.  We discuss the coffee world and good espressos and how he’s installed roasters for all the spots I know in WI (in addition to everyone else), including Kickapoo Coffee, Alterra, and Ancora.  I even let him call me, “Junior.”  He did compliment the shot of Black Cat I pulled him..
Short week because of Thanksgiving.
