CEO Blogs about Barista Exchange CEO Blogs about Barista Exchange

I met Sonny Mayugba at the Food and Restaurant/Bar Show in Las Vegas, also in conjunction with the Coffee & Tea Expo/SWRBC ... a.k.a. The world's biggest FRAT PARTY. :)

While I was walking to our booth the first morning of the show I spotted the Bite Club booth. Wow, I thought, I jumped on this focused social network train at the right time! They had some really cool buttons and promo materials which I grabbed and then later in the day went back to introduce myself. Their booth was packed, and they had multiple people live blogging during the show, I remember doing an interview, but not sure if it ever surfaced.

Sonny is the bite club CEO and it was hilarious, because we were dressed identical with a modern long sleeve shirt and dark sweater vest, the usual uniform for a dot com entrepreneur these days. We talked about Bite Club for a while before I told him about Barista Exchange and it was interesting to hear basically the same mission statement and thought process, but in regards to two different industries. I was intrigued by his site and checked it out that evening. It has some really cool features to it, like a version of rating things called Bite it! It is also divided up into many groups and search oriented sections.

Long story short Sonny joined the site a while back, as he is a true Coffee Enthusiast, and just today wrote a really great blog about Barista Exchange, and I wanted to reciprocate.

So, make sure to go check out - I look forward to working closer with Sonny and BiteClub to share in this crazy online social networking revolution.

OK, just for the record BaristaExchangers, this was no love-for-love exchange, I blogged up BE because it's killer. Matt recip'd, which is cool. OK, with that said, thanks Matt, looking forward to all the criss-cross (not the old rap band) we can do.
