It's all good. Coffee's a drug too.

Hey guys!
Last night I ended the year with a shot of Espresso and a milk chocolate Lacey Cookie when this question came to mind- How much Crema is too much Crema? I've shared this question on Instagram (@NapoHBarista) as well and got some interesting feed back. What do you think? Happy New Year!

His expression says it all.

"It smells like unhappy children."
This is what happens when you make a certified coffee instructor taste-test coffees from a can.

So I was going through my storage and came upon a treasure trove (depending on your perspective and ability to overlook jittery camera work) of mini DV tapes I shot using a Canon GL2 way back in the day. 

I'll be converting most of the footage to Youtube stuff. First up is all the video (most of the video - some was completely unusable) of the USBC finals, in 2003, in Boston. In the video are

- Bronwen Serna (who won in 2004)
- Heather Perry (Sainsbury in the vid, I think she was married briefly back then), who won 2003
- Jon Lewis, my personal fave, who finished 2nd, the poet barista ahead of his time
- Stephen Vick, exuding the confidence Zoka had as a coffee powerhouse back then

and others. Anyway, it's up on Youtube - check it out, take a trip down memory lane, recognize some faces in the crowd and on stage, and cringe, like I did, at all the portafilter knocking baristas did with their tampers.

Fresh new content at CoffeeGeek, and an important read: "Remembering Coffee Kids"; a look back from the future to a past we hope won't happen. A must read.

The following is a " what if" written by the recent (and retired) Coffee Kids board president, Mike Ferguson. This is not reality, but it could be if the specialty coffee industry and coffee enthusiast consumers like you don't continue to support this fantastic organization. June 19, 2038 ...

If you are in Vancouver on Thursday, July 24, there is a nice coffee social event going on at Matchstick Coffee. This is not my event, but it is an open event for all who love great coffee. From the organizer, Spencer Viehweger, co-owner of Matchstick:

We always love opportunities to get together with other baristas, share thoughts and ideas on coffee, and generally just get to know each other better. We had a unique experience of this at the TED conference this year, where we had the opportunity to not only chat coffee, but actually make it together with baristas that we didn't know very well, many of whom we were meeting meeting for the first time. 

We are hoping to expand on this experience a bit more with an open house. We will be closing shop for the evening, and opening up our espresso machine and brew bar for baristas to make coffee together. We also wanted to give people a chance to work with a coffee they were less familiar with, so we will be bringing a sampling of each coffee from Tim Wendelboe's current offer list. We will set up one or two cuppings, and give baristas a chance to work with each of the espressos and filter coffees via various filter methods. We will have both Chemex and Aeropress available, with either paper or Able filters, but you're welcome to bring any brew method of your choosing!

I know that evening is not an ideal time to drink coffee, but we'll make sure there are lots of spit cups available. 

Fortunately, we'll also be featuring a delicious line-up of local craft beer to balance out the caffeine! We will be donating half the beer sales at the event to a coffee project at El Diamante in Guatemala. 

I'm excited about this event, for the opportunity to try out some unfamiliar coffee, having the chance to learn from our incredibly knowledgeable coffee community, and being able to raise a bit of money to help out a fantastic producer, Patricia Perez. 

This is being held at Matchstick Coffee's Georgia Street Location.
