Then where do we catch up with other CSs while we are there!
Let alone see what is new on the market!!
Maybe a national convention for CoffeeSnobs might work, have one in a state capital (changing state every year).
It might not work for our sponsors/suppliers as they will be preaching to the converted, concidering the costs involved moving machines etc around the country for a one off event every year let alone planing and timing an event like that!
Just a thought ;)
