it's only a couple weeks now until NASCORE!
Portland, baristi, NWBC, tons of coffee, Stumptown, belgian beer, party at Crema, single-origin espresso...
very cool indeed.
i'm gearing up by continuing to try and choose an ideal origin espresso or two, by sourcing a new "crotchless" zoka portafilter and by picking up a couple substitute shifts to get my hand back in.
i cannot wait!
