New Flickr

Well, Scott Lucey suggested I get Flickr to post some of the many pictures from my trip and the competition. So, I did. So, go ahead and click on the entry title and check out the stuff…

Beyond Flickr a lot of great things have been happening. This weekend, my boss, Andrew Kopplin took off to North Carolina. Not for the best reasons, but he was able to go… this is the first weekend he’s taken off since he opened the shop. Our staff is now 10 deep and we’ve got 4 capable baristas. I’m currently in the works of retraining Andrew. We also have hired another dude named Andrew (Milstead) who is already Zoka trained. Actually, it was Nathan, whom Phuong trained, who trained Andrew. Small world.

We also just made the decision to purchase 2 (not just 1, but 2!) Roburs from ESI. So, in a few weeks we’ll be double armed and very dangerous. The Synesso hasn’t been my favorite machine, but I am slowly falling for her. The last week I’ve been playing with the machine temperature and messing with steam wand pressure. I’m finally rocking the kind of milk our espresso deserves. The espresso is tasting less like a fuit basket and featuring more chocolate flavors. Right now, the stuff is just awesome.

Life has all around been swell. School is school. It’s midterm season… I just registered for my next semester and I am taking a majorly light load. I plan on hitting three regionals before the USBC so I didn’t want to over-due anything. I am taking an audio engineering class which should be cool. There’s a new girl. Well, not too new, but I can say there is only one… Now, all I need to do is lock in a sig drink and get my shit together for the midwest regionals…
