Hi All,

I wanted to let you know that Darth Vader showed up today here at bX headquarters and is about to begin his fun filled life of traveling to bX member coffee shops/roasteries.

I want to write more about it soon when I have time but here is the gist of it.

Darth will spend this week here in Portland partying at the USBC, ABC School and maybe some coffee houses. After the festivities are over he will be sent to an undisclosed recipient who's coffee shop is listed in the bX "Coffee Shops" forum, or to someone who is active on bX. (Tony may be this first person as he is the inspiration behind the project.)

I will be also buying a journal that will go with Darth V so that his travels can be logged. Before sending him to the next place it will be required to post a picture and the journal entries here in bX. This book can also work as an autograph book of sorts, as we will try to get Darth V to all big industry events, and maybe even send him on his forst international excursion, leaving the WBC with an international competitor.

Tony and I discussed Coffee Kids somehow playing a role in this, and I am sitting next to Rob Tuttle here in Portland who thought it would be cool if we can maybe host Darth in a cafe for a week, with a donation jar or cards talking about Coffee Kids or other coffee charities.

More to come from Darth V this week as the USBC starts to formulate ...

- Matt

Send him to Aussie land. I'll put him on the counter for a week or two and then ship him off again!! :)

Matt, I think Ben had Vader in a back room at Octane hand-sorting beans for his chemex. No boring stuff!
Matt,
great idea with the coffee kids as a back drop. You can put a jar on our counter any week of your choice.

Did someone lose the force?

I love it, if he makes it to Dave G in Australia, maybe he can stop up here on the way to enjoying a Singapore Sling in Danny's place in Singapore! Then off to Manggo queen in Taiwan...what an exciting and exotic life Darth can have.
Yes!

we did this to heather ringwood & her pink tamper, you have to ask her about it. We also sent her hostage letters from "the tamper" demanding things like doughnuts, etc... We sent it with a couple of our sales reps they took pictures of it all over the place. It was a riot. Loved it. Great idea. make sure y ou get a pic of darth across the hall in the "wall" at Imbibe. :)
Hey Matt,
This sounds kind of awesome. We'd love to take part and if he ever wants to visit Coffee Kids office in Santa Fe, give us a headsup. Also, let us know if you need materials or anything. (and personally, as a proud Wisconsinite, I'd vote he gets to Madison, Wis., home of Chad Vader, as soon as possible. -kyle@Coffee Kids)
