up to sf for the weekend 12/26-29!  good times..  rybee and the folks at RitualRo were gracious.

A few weeks back Julian from Simonelli stopped by to talk about the new competition machine.   Coincidentally, Brent Fortune was in town conducting training/testing for barista competition judging down in Long Beach.  We all had a nice chat.  Also, re: competitions: the gents at Intelli.LA are gearing up and tasting spros mixed with different concoctions in our laboratory.  I suppose I’d like to consider myself their guide….

Oh..  and of course we’re all gearing up for VENICE!
