Friso! Sorry I haven't return your message any sooner...I gave up my hotmail address and the messages didn't arrive in my new e-mail...
Borneo is GREAT, esprecially the Brunei part which is more calm. If you have time and are willing to hike, I have a member of the Iban tribe who is able to take you for a 5 day tour through the jungle. Let's keep in touch on ;-) And meet for a coffee?

Hi Friso, thanks for your kind message. Progress is slow, right now. It's busy getting my 3 kids settled into school. However, I recently took a trip to Portland and visited with a few espsresso caterers and I learned a lot! I am very excited about the possibilities.

Hey Friso,

Thanks for you message and your interest in my project.
I`m bachelor in foreign trade and not planning to continue my studies in the near future. Last year I went to the WBC, and was amazed by the knowledge of my fellow baristas. I decided to absorv as much knowledge as possible about coffee or the barista profession, while giving something back in return (to those who need it the most, the growers).

I`m having trouble to proyect the sales of the DVD, mainly because each customer will decide how much to pay for it.

The purpose of the business plan in to get financial support from sponsors (mainly to cover the expenses of the world-class baristas, who will join to the trip to train local baristas at origin).

Best regards,

Hi Friso,

I`m an argentinean barista working on a non-profit venture to improve coffee-farming communities`livelihoods.
I`m having some trouble with the business plan, and I want to know if you could give me a hand with it.

Best regards,

Best regards,
