Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
We're on the same block as the Lenin Statue down in Fremont.
How many years have you been in the industry?
I began training my palate two years ago.
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
I work as a barista and I know some technical stuff, too. When I taste a good cup of coffee, I think first about the how and the why.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Norway. And I've never been to Idaho. I'd like to go to Idaho, or at least take a train across it. I would hate to die without having been to Idaho.
About Me:
While wandering the country two years ago I spent two weeks sitting in a coffee shop in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Since then, coffee has become my all-consuming passion and my ultimate goal is to do it permanently in Norway.

I also am a devoted cyclist, a casual accordionist and I love me a good book on a lazy afternoon.
About My Company:
Stickman Coffee is the baby of Dismas Smith, located down in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. We apply water, heat, and sometimes milk to Borogove Coffee. I would love to pull you some shots, so stop by.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
It is where I find intellectual, artistic and social stimulus. Oh yeah, and sensory stimulus, too.

when idiots work alone

Posted on February 12, 2008 at 8:35am 8 Comments

I really love working alone. And while I have my solitude and independence, there are always customers to keep from feeling deprived of human contact. Except on days like yesterday.

Yesterday, I crawled out of bed and slapped two fried eggs between the slices of a day-old-day-old-day-old bagel. I felt like I was dead. I could not believe how tired I was. But I stumbled out of the house, hopped on my bike and took to the streets.

The streets were empty and so was the bike… Continue

Where the wild things are

I love being the last one out of the shop. Last night I had just

left the shop when I remembered that I had left my cell phone charger

and, when I got back into the shop, I found myself surrounded by

slumbering beasts of burden. The GB5 squatted there on the

counter with its two eerily glowing oval eyes. The Clover

persistantly reminded me to "Stir in cleaner" while the water tower and

the Anfim peeked at me with their little red eyes. In the dark I

could feel… Continue

Tamper Dream

Posted on January 21, 2008 at 10:02am 11 Comments

Last night I had a dream in which I went up in a spaceship to fix a
communication satellite. Unfortunately there was some delay so I
took the opportunity to read a good book, but first I looked out the
portal. I saw that there were somewhere around a dozen more
communication satellites scattered in orbit around the earth, and that
each one was shaped like a tamper with a base the size of Australia.


What to do?

Ahhhhh!!!! I don't know what I should do! I need to work on dialing in to the Brazil on the Clover, but this involves drinking a copious quantity of coffee and I can't find the bathroom key. Well, I suppose there's always the courtyard . . .

I like my saw'd off bullhorns! ( sounding like hellboy to the uninformed reader of your comment wall.) I cut them to be where the brake hoods used to be,.. but I liked that riding possition when it was my high school gear'd bike. This was more about free. I only ride on the dropdowns when coasting, and that doesn't happen any more. I'm headed up there for to meet up and drink some of your home spro!
