I agree, something should get started in ND. There are a few decent shops around, but I got really into coffee when I got a job as a barista in Seattle, and I haven't been able to find anything that even comes close to some of the shops I used to frequent. I haven't worked in coffee since I moved back to Minot, but I really do love doing, and would like to again someday.
Where at in North Dakota? I've worked in three different shops in North Dakota and one in South Dakota. And i've got to sat that i understand the feeling that there SHOULD be someone as serious about coffee...they're just really hard to find!
