I love the connection between TED and good coffee. It's a wonderful combo. :-)

I was at the TED Conference at the Long Beach Convention Center, California. A group of attendees (ticket price was around ten thousand for a three day event), approached me on the final day and stated that they voted me the best barista at the show. It was a great feeling.
Just being around that crowd of stars gave me the energy and passion to become a better latte artist.
"We really admire your work"
Not "the coffee you make" or "the drinks" but "your work"...I love that it acknowledges the art of coffee.
after drinking espresso, excellent work, I only drink it when you're on.
