Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
I've been inspired since the SCAA trade show in Minneapolis in April of 08. It brought to my realization that being a coffee geek, isn't a bad thing, but that there are many fellow baristas out there that are just as passionate as I am about coffee, and the industry!

I've been self educating as much as I can, since the trade show, and hope to continue doing so. taking labs, listening to lectures or simply having discussion!
it seems there is always something to learn.
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
Minneapolis, Milwaukee, anywhere in WI/MN. possibly the surrounding states, or anything else if a good enough offer is made.

hey Keith, nice to meet to last night. Hope you enjoy your stay in Atlanta, and the coffee to boot. I think I told you about record store appreciation day, and you seemed a bit interested.
Here's the info on that record store I was telling you about, with the show info:

Sat Apr 18 09 11:00 AM | Atlanta, GA US
Venue: Criminal Records (Little 5 Points)
Address: 1154 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, GA, 30307, US

We'll probably show up for early for SCAA and then head over there for a bit, catch the show and maybe a couple records then head back to the SCAA stuff. Let me know if you want to hang out. Peace.

wow... latte art at Dunn Bros?!? I lived in minnie for three years and never saw anything close at any shop until Kopplin's opened. Awesome to see care and attention spreading. It was actually in Minneapolis where I decided to ditch my film degree, sell everything and dive into coffee. Where is your shop at?

I've been in the Twin Cities for the last week but haven't had the chance to go to your shop. I'll be in town again a month from now. Let me know when you work and I'll stop by.

Keith, Have you been to Kopplin's coffee in St Paul. They do some really good work there. I like the latte art photos. Good coffee is very scarce in most of Northern WI but I am working very hard to try to change that. We do have a lot to do here. I was actually inspired to be a coffee roaster by the coffee scene in St Paul where is went to college. Good to see you are passionate about what you do. Joseph
