Ini! Nice to hear from you. Sounds like you are going to be hand delivering my copy of Espresso Quest to me here in London! Would be great to catch up and continue our discussion on the ever-elusive coffee and ethics. Let me know dates.

heres a quote:
"I read Espresso Quest cover to cover on a flight from Minneapolis SCAA to Guatemala Cup of Excellence. I was so turned on and enthused about espresso and my mind so flooded with espresso dreams by the time I landed that I walked right past my ride. I then coerced the entire COE judging panel to go on a field trip to six different espresso bars in Guatemala city in one day. The books is a rocket."

Thats funny you mentioned the trier thing.
I noticed what seemed to be a difference in roast when using the bean trier during 1st crack and not using it until 1st crack was completely finished.

My unproved theory is that I was releasing critical energy out of the roaster during pyrolysis. You are the only who has every mentioned this to me.

I think that is awesome you wrote a book people like you inspire me to be better than I am and are the kind of people that should be in the industry.

I am an espresso junkie myself I spent 2 years coming up with my perfect blend and one year learning to roast it.

So I feel you on the espresso. Espresso really has been the catalyst that fuels everything I do.
People have accused me of being a coffee geek, I often correct them and say I am an espresso nut.

I will not be at scaa this year maybe next year.
Thanks Jason

Hey thanks Instaurator for replying to my post about the agtron controls we use. I roasted manual for 2 years and had very good results I do like the agtron but feel after all the calculations are done I am just baby sitting the roaster until the bean temp comes to pass and ejecting the coffee. There is no art to it.
I much prefer manual roasting even if the results could never be as consistent as an automated roaster.
You rock man I hope to get the cool new book.
Peace and good coffee thoughts.

Wow, what a weekend! My guts are still churning ;-)
I'll be training hard for the Open Heats of the Nationals in Melbourne. I've a fair bit of work to do, as the standard is REALLY high.
I'm loving the job BTW, warts and all;-)

Hi Inni, Got your voicemail. I love your son's band. Great song. -Look forward to seeing you in Minneapolis.

Ha! ;-)
I agree with what you're saying, as it's pretty much what I've seen so far. It's exciting and terrifying at the same time, so I'm riding a pretty wild wave at the moment.

Thanks, I had a great time in Sydney. Rachel is great (so's the rest of the team), she really took care of me.
Yes, the Monkey coffee was good - send me a few kilos ;-).
Thanks for your advice about training, and I hope to spend more time with you again soon.
Peter Wolff asked if you'd given me any tips for competition. I didn't think to ask before, so have you got any tips you can give me now?
I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty this week, and I'm thankful I'm following Zoe - the shoes may be big, but they're well made.
