good to meet you man , that was some delicious espresso this morning. the single cup was good too but the highlight for me was definitely the S.O.

I hope it works out. If not, I'll make a trip to Portland and we can cup some coffees and grab a drink somewhere. I plan on competing again. I enjoy the competition too much to quit now.

Thanks Alex,

I'm thinking about heading to Seattle for Coffee Fest in a few months. Will you be there?

That's a plan! I really want to get out there to where you are some time really soon. Weekends are really the only time, and carting the whole family out there is a bit difficult, especially with my wife due in a few weeks. Maybe after a month or two Ill have some time. If you need any help finding a place in South City, let me know!

Great seeing you this weekend! It's too bad you could not cmpete this year. Are you thinking about going for it next year? I am tossing up the idea of judging next year. Not sure yet. So, you are no longer with Picasso's. Now with Goshen? How is that going? I really need to get over there some time. I live really close to Local Harvest and two blocks from Sweet Art. I drink the love from the Land of Goshen while there. It's good to know you guys are out there trying hard to do things right. St. Louis has a long way to go, but I think we've come a long way as well!! Talk to you later man!

What's going on man? Things are good down here. I would love to pay you a visit next time I'm up. I'll need directions and all that stuff. I was just up last Fri. How are things going up there? Still putting out amazing drinks?

Lots of love!

Wonderful job at the MWRBC!

Hey Alex,

No worries about the pitcher. Like I said, I think the goal should be to support one another no matter what the circumstances. I keep hearing about community in the barista world, I think it's time some of us start living it!!!
