Fly from Seattle to Milwaukee. i have a lay over in Minneapolis and unfortunately not long enough to check any cafe out. Milwaukee: Alterra Coffee - Working with Scott Lucey Madison: Ancora Coffee - visiting with Ryan Baughn Not sure yet, I imagine I can hang out at my friend's cafe at EVP. I still am getting to know about EVP, my friend that I am visiting has been working with them for several years. They roast their own coffee and have some pretty nice equipment. If anything I have an opportunity to relax and check out Madison. Train from Columbus, WI to Chicago, IL Chicago: The Italian Bar - bar time with Andy Atkinson Intelligentsia - possibly a tour and cupping at the roastery with Michael Phillip Train from Chicago, IL to New York, NY Gimm!e Coffee - bar time at one of the locations with Mike? Not sure, perhaps with another rad barista Joe: the art of coffee - bar time with Jonathan or again, possibly another rad barista Everyman Espresso - visiting with Edmond and crew Fly from New York back home to Seattle. I have contacted a lot of people and am looking forward to hearing from more. Because I am taking an extra day in Chicago I am a little worried I won't have enough time in New York and might end up moving my departure up a day from Madison. I am not entirely sure yet. Originally this all started off as a trip to Madison, plain and simple, that's it. But then I thought hey, I should fly into our out of Milwaukee, I want to visit Alterra. Then I thought well hey, you know New York is so much closer to me now in Madison than way over here in Seattle, I'll just jump over to New York. Anyways I can hardly wait and can't wait to make connections with people and learn new things. I am absolutely terrified of meeting new people and essentially putting my skills to the test! But it should be fun, I have extremely high hopes. oh, and I started another blog: anothercoffee.wordpress.com I'll be keeping people updated with my travels, discoveries and new connections! And on a side note, this blog is there too. I am going to start just blogging there following this blog.
