I have known Jeffrey Goldsmith
for a few years now, meeting him first at a Las Vegas Coffee Fest Tradeshow. At that time he was promoting his new book Cafe Haiku
, which some of you may know and love, and was getting his feet wet in the world of coffee. His book was a success and he spent a while promoting poetry readings in cafes around the US.… Continue

It could happen...James Hoffmann will be at the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast Barista Jam in Easton, PA, home of ex-heavyweight champ Larry Holmes! James will be here to present on espresso extraction, but I could see James vs Laryy in a latte art smackdown, then they step into the ring for 10 rounds, all proceeds got to Bikes to Rwanda! :-)… Continue

The following reenactment is 100% true. No names have been changed to protect the innocent.
People often ask us, "Stone Creek, how come you're so dedicated to putting on
Free-For-Everyone Events like your biweekly coffee cuppings and refuse
to charge the living heck out us for everything?" Our reaction to… Continue

Well, I finished my goals for '08, and it's time to start working on them. I met with our president this morning to go over them, and the brainstorm for the new year, and one thing we agreed was something we wanted to work on this year was to improve the culture of coffee in and around Charlotte, even region. I feel like we really are on the cusp of something cool, like the scene in Kansas City is now. I feel it's time to be more fully realized in our area. I am tired of reading about everyone… Continue

Well, I had a great day today. The little league team that I manage had finally won our first game! (They really played their hearts out.) Afterwards, my nieces came over and we (Me, my two kids and my two nieces.) saw another ball game. A great fun filled day was had at the ball field. Afterwards, we all went out to dinner, my wife, myself, my two sons, my two nieces and my parents. It was a great dinning experience, a pleasurable time was had by one and all. We patronized an authentic Italian… Continue

If you haven't yet heard, Double Punch Days began January 1 and, boy howdy, what a start it's been! We've already given out oodles of Stone Creek Coffee drink cards to those retail store customers who know that for every coffee or tea drink purchase they make during January they'll get two hole punches on their card. These clever and industrious patrons (a.k.a. Smarties) also know that getting two hole… Continue

I am finally visiting one of my best friends in Madison for Spring Break this March. And because I am so much closer to New York while in Madison I have decided to hop over to New York as well. I would love to visit as many new shops as possible and hopefully start making connections for my big plan of a project for school my junior year, which is two years away. I don't really have a plan for New York other than to eat well, visit shops, make connections and knit.

Late December in 2007 you see. To be exact it twas New year's Eve!
So.. here's the skinny on the sitcheation...BAM!
There I was at the New Year's party at a few of my buddies' house. The home of Murph Cat, Kyle G., Wolfgang Von Govang, and Steak Moose (AKA Shades) to be exact. Though I must point out that Steak was moreso being his humane self (Jake Roose) for the most part, I just used the name of Steak due to the fact this is who he becomes as more alcoholic beverages pour… Continue

Just like it should be. Who am I? What am I?
My name is James Spano. Born and raised in Auburn, Al I also attended school there and graduated Spring '06 with a degree in music education. I got interested in coffee around my second sophomore year. I don't mean my second year of school, I mean my second year as a sophomore. I'm a slow learner. Anyway, some friends of mine from church who recently moved here from Ecuador had just opened a coffee shop and I went over with some friends to try… Continue

I would like to thank Matt and the folks at the ABC School for starting the Barista Exchange networking site, but more importantly I would like to thank Matt for allowing "Enthusiast" such as myself to participate in a real
I know some of the professionals out there probably think that the site potentially could be "hijacked," for a lack of better words, by the enthusiast. With sites like the Barista Guild or… Continue

So I'm working at this little organic cafe as the assistant manager, when the cafe manager decides to talk about starting up an espresso bar with some untouched equipment sitting at another one of the stores. The cafe manager left a few weeks ago, and as the asst. I jumped in to try and take over the project, which thus far has little in the way of any organization that I'm aware of beyond the construction. So I've been researching, pricing out items, finding all of the items that we're going… Continue
