hey matt. still in kona? how do you come about a free ticket to kona? how have your reviews been going? honestly I have had trouble getting a decent cup of coffee in this town. If you know of anything let me know. I am living over on the kona side. I still need to try java on the rocks and green something or other. I hope they turn out to be more of what I am looking for.

Thanks Matthew! I actually stopped into Trabant(U-District) yesterday to try it out. I was excited to see that Trabant uses 49 Parallel. I used to live in Vancouver BC so that made me happy. Let me know when you guys do any Barista jamming or cupping. I would love to come. Thanks again!
