Terika, great art.  I love some of your distinct rosettes.  Very unique.    Do you know if the lm strada baskits fit other machines porta filters (nuova simonelli).

Hey Terika, thanks for the invite, I'm totally not in the area anymore (I'll be back in town in November.) I miss the coffee world... nearest cafe is 20 miles away and everything tastes like crap!!

I'll be there. Ticket will be purchased tomorrow...
And in response to your "undefeated" latte art record, you are so going down :0)
See ya soon. I'll probably be up there before the jam anyway so I'll let ya know if I'm planning on coming in...

Thanks for the invite. I'm not sure if anyone will be there for this one. It's the weekend of Sara's wedding and we're all involved in some capacity, trying to keep the shop open while helping set up for the wedding/reception.

Thanks for the invite, but unfortunately I have a few appointments and old friends I'm spending time with on that day.

I hope to do coffee with you folks again.

P.S. I saw Kurt already told you, but it would be great to have all you guys come to GR to hang out, do coffee, and enjoy some art in the gallery one of these Thursdays. Auf Wiedersehen!

Summers are busy so its hard to say but we will try our best. . You should bring the crew on a road trip to our Thursday night coffee jam. Every Thursday all summer from 6 to 9. No cost, no strings attached. Very informal way to learn and share.
