Hey Thomas,

Do you know where I can get any good coffee.

Hey Banks,
I am excited to see your pics from Sumatra! Loved the ones from Nicaragua! It's dark and yucky here, so enjoy the sun for all of us!

Yes, cutbacks at CCC but Jeff snapped me up. You look busy - looks like like fun though! Good to hear from you :)

Hey Banks! How's the weather in BC?

No show for me.
BTW: you've been enjoying one of the nicest summers we've had in this part of the world. Missing home?

I'm sorry for not getting back to you earlier. Been a mad few weeks. Dog died, roaster training, staff sick, good mood diminished thoroughly. Sorry to have flaked on you.

Do you think we can get one organized for before Christmas?

Hey Banks, things are good in Pennsylvania. How was the move? Is the new job exciting or what?

What? You don't like communicating through the job search chain?
Yeah, I'm in the shop M-F, usually until about noon or 1. Longer hours these days as I have 2 trainees. One of them mnade me a great cappuccino this afternoon so it's looking good.
I was out with JP Oughtred, Shane from Habit and Rob from Fernwood and I mentioned it to a couple of them - they're interested. Shane hosts regular Tuesday cuppings at Habit but it'll be good to bring in some out-of-town beans.

When are you back from Ontario?

Hey Banks! I just returned from Vangroovy and a scooter rally! I'm exhausted and a little hung over...

OCtober 10 sounds good. What's the ferrry sched?

We should post this on BX, start a group or something - there is the coffee tasters guild that we could invite members to. I'll have to make you an admin of that. ANy invitees you want to be there?
What do you think we can get for that date?
