overheard at SCAA

With a disgusted look on his face, "We are living in the 1960's of coffee technology." - Phillip Search, 49th Parallel. This is a common theme in the quality coffee industry. "We can send people into space and we can't pull quality shots all the time!" - Me

With his big smile "I'm changing the world". - George Howell, Terroir Coffee. When he says it he means it; most of us just try to change the world for the better.

Everyone said, "the level of the barista competitors has raised so drastically that a flawless performance might not make the semi-finals. "

"Most Kenya AA is blended with UG1 or UG2 (Un Graded - less dense Kenyan Coffee) and sold as AA, but if people actually cupped some of the UG1's and UG2's they would find some gems" - Kenyan Importer.
