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 ...

Hey Coffee Kids,

Send me your address and maybe he an make a pit stop there to get brochures and other stuff loaded up in his travel box. He is still at Octane, but is ready for a move.

Thanks, would love to make this a Coffee Kids supportive deal, so let's talk.

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)
We could add some brochures and maybe put a coin drop in there that could travel with him.
Give Joey a call at 505-820-1443 or e-mail joey@coffeekids.org if you want to work out details.

Here's the address:
Coffee Kids
Attn. Joey Apodaca
1751 Old Pecos Trail, Suite K
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Talk soon and looking forward to it. Seems to be pretty good interest in the idea.

If he needs a home after coffee kids you can send him our way! We will take good care of him!
The Dark Lord has arrived. Lord Vader is currently enjoying a snowy day in Santa Fe and attended the Coffee Kids staff meeting. Stay tuned for more adventures.

Send him here!!!!! We are a spaced themed shop and have a big ol' R2 on our window ledge. : ) We'd love to take pics, show him around Austin and send him on his way!

That is AWESOME! Glad he is back on the road. Did his book come with him I hope? Look forward to hearing about where he is off to next.

Send Darth V to Chattanooga, TN through me at Pasha Coffee and Tea he will have a blast visiting the all the cafes here. He will even raise money for coffee Kids with some Live Music! MAybe do some outdoor activities...
Darth would love it in Sedona...
this is most exciting ,ever since the empire dissolved the balance of the force has weighed far too long with the jedi, i welcome the lord vader .
bonzai coffee co. does not underestimate the power of the dark side,
the force is strong with us.
look foward to participating
Fantastic idea Matt, Vader would have been welcomed openly and not without companionship in my old workplace in Vancouver from way back.
Troy.
