    Just to confirm that there are no barista competitions taking us away from the office this time around, so Ill look forward to seeing yall at the beanbay pickup.

    I have some Brown Huehueh on order; cant wait!

    Ill get my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with to keep everyones palates amused on the day.

    Cheers,

    Luca

      That is good news!

      Ill look far less suss loitering in an industrial area handing out bags of Colombian something or other when everything is closed.


      What was even worse was that we KNOW the coffee is great at First Pour.

          to paint a more suspicious picture of the last pickup, it looked even more sus as andy was handing out white cotton bags of stuff from the back of his black car

            At least we can use the "cover" of First Pour to drug deal in Abbotsford next Saturday.

                  Would anyone like me to bring the Gene Cafe so they can have a look at it working?

                  I am quite happy to bring it along and rave about it

                    Hey, when did you get the Gene?!

                    If anyone wants to see a Gene in action, speak up. We have one in the factory, so Ill just grab that and save you lugging yours around, Linda.

                    Cheers,

                    Luca

                      Just before Mothers Day. Chris made me an offer too good to refuse.

                      See you Saturday!

                          Not sure ... Jesse has been sick, so the sales guys have been covering Thursday/Friday. Well see what theyve left me to work with tomorrow ;P Ive let them know that Moka Pots and a Makin Espresso are on my wishlist!

                          Cheers,

                            Just like to say that I enjoyed an hour or so at First Pour this morning.

                            It was good to put faces to names; Luca, Andy and some others.

                            Also interesting to have Luca showing off the Makin machine and grinder - actually seeing the process of dialing in the shot is something I can always learn a little more from.

                            Several coffees to die for did no harm also.

                            Thanks to all,

                            Peter

                              Again a big thanks to Luca for opening up the cafe for some "get togetherness" with other CSrs, and for letting us play around on the Makin machine and to taste some shots! (much to my husbands disgust...he really is a tea drinker!)

                              I am really leaning towards the Makin machine...the more I see it in operation the more it grows on me.

                              Wushoes, it was great meeting you! Hope to catch up with again at the next beanbay pickup.

                              Again thanks to Andy for making the trek to FP with the beans [smiley=dankk2.gif]....my husband says [quote]"He looks like he selling contraband out of the back of his car" ;D[unquote].
