I've been watching the El Bulli episode of Tony Bourdain's show over and over again (thanks Alistair). If you've not seen it - you need to. It's incredible. It's eye-opening.

The team mentality.

What I wouldn't give for a think-tank coffee laboratory half the year and a coffee bar to share and test the results for the other half....
