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

Hello,

I forgot to post this film I made when Darth Vader visited Bill Fishbein & I at Santa Fe Coffee Works...

Bill didn't know I took Darthy along with me for a week to experience my mildly chaotic life with my roommates and at my second job (hotel) where I had too much time on my hands.

 

Better late than never.Enjoy!

***(There's a small amount of swearing in this!  PG-13)

If Darth Vader could drink coffee....   I wander what his preferred drink would be?  Guessing something with out cream.

The OSB give away the location

Send Darth to Honolulu for a little R&R with da Beach Bum. He can hang out with Shawn Steiman, Pete Licata,and Miguel Meza for a couple days. Maybe DV can pull a few shots for us ;-).
