    SCAA 2008 General Pics

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Ok, its time for the picture fun to begin!

    I will be dividing the pictures up into different categories and posting them all directly on the CS server. This means there will be one picture per post. This will allow easier referencing to a particular picture in discussions and prevent their being used/sold by an image hosting site with-out permission.

    For ease of viewing all images will be reduced too 30% of their original size.

    There will be multiple pictures of some items, ie different viewing angles and lighting conditions.

    With a few exceptions all pictures in the equipment categories will be posted with-out comment. The brands of the equipment is visible on the vast majority of the equipment pictures. If you have any questions on a particular picture feel free to post it and I will respond as best as I am able.

    All the pictures will be posted here in the News section in a centralized location rather than splitting them up into smaller categories and posting them in multiple forums.

    We owe a big thank you to SCAA for the access they granted CoffeeSnobs and too all the vendors who so generously allowed pictures to be taken of their products and displays. Per the conference/press rules every vendor was asked for permission to take pictures of their displays/items.

    As a side note only one vendor refused permission for pictures to be taken. Not very bright of them if you ask me as they sell a home roaster and hence missed out on free publicity on one of the worlds largest and busiest coffee sites! One dedicated to the very market theyre selling too!! Oh well, their loss! Please do not ask what company it was as given their downright rude response to my polite request to take a picture Ill not give them publicity of any kind.

    Please note: Pictures of some equipment will not be included in the general threads as they are deserving of a thread all unto themselves and will be written up in detail later. So if any vendors perusing the site dont see a picture of their product dont worry. It just means that youre special and will have a thread all to yourself later! :)

    The Oak Street Theater by the main campus of the University of Minnesota where Part 3 "The Perfect Cup" of the 3 part documentary "Black Coffee" made its US debut Saturday night as the final film in the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival.

    The aftermath. The trade show floor being cleared out. This is the main hall where the trade show area was with the US Barista Championship area on the far end where the bleachers are, some 250 meters from where the picture was taken.

    This hall has over 27,534 square meters of floor space and was completely filled. All told the conference covered some 40,000 square meters.

    A few more.

    A very nifty scoop for filling bags and some nice retro looking scales.

    I sure do, and the strongarm bag lifter would be great too!
    (although Paula might not agree on at least one of those points)

    I have never seen one of those bag lifters before, neat idea and a much smaller foot print than a bucket lifter or an augar. Ill store that concept away for sure.

    Or you could get one of these lifters: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1210124545/28#28

    An even smaller footprint than the Strong Arm. :)
