two events!

first, a reminder for my scaa nyc jan. 12 event at 7pm at the juan valdez cafe!

our door prizes now include: the US$200 capresso coffeetec (thanks again, jim!); a set of 4 demitasse with saucers in a "coffee leaf" pattern (thanks, steve colten of atlantic!); and some roasted specialty colombian coffees winging their way to me now, i hope (thanks, greyfriars/rare coffee, gimme, and gillies).

r.s.v.p. while there's still time!

and for the bi-coastal among you -- or who just happen to live in la-la land:

"The Barista Guild of America would like to invite you to our first ever Western Regional Barista Guild Jam hosted by the Specialty Coffee Association of America!
