Hi all-

Jeremy Nelson stopped by my shop, and dropped me an email with the group page info.

Just wanted to introduce myself- I'm Aaron, I run Brewstock, the local beer & winemaking supply shop. Just recently moved to a bigger space, and will be increasing my coffee roasting and cheese making supplies.

If there's anything like specialized espresso/coffee equipment, cleaning supplies, or green beans you'd like to have access to locally, just drop me a note, and I'll see if I can get them in store for ya! I do have an empty shelf in the store (gasp) to work with.

Big things coming , their is magic in the air. No i 'm not talkin' about spring, i'm talking 'bout this group doing some once in a lifetime( maybe not once in a lifetime, more like first in a lifetime) type of stuff like getting a a coffee importers closet full of samples and going hog wild. We're gonna be doing roastin' , some cuppinn' ,and maybe a liitle af a mock competetion in which it is not what you get if you win, it' what you get when you lose
