regional coffee culture, part liv

"taupo will become the unofficial coffee capital of new zealand for three days when more than 6000 coffee lovers turn up for a festival celebrating the bean, beginning tomorrow."

wouldn't this be a fantastic festival to attend? the coffee culture in the southern hemisphere is just amazing.

i can only hope that someday we can have such a large event here in the u.s.a.!

finally, it's with great reluctance that i mention the alleged scaa embezzlement scandal. i've gotten a lot of email about it.

all i can say is that the facts are still somewhat unknown; a thorough investigation will take some time.

it seems as if the most we can do is wish the organization the best until more is known. some "first responders" are donating funds to tide scaa over in the meantime.
