  1. Coffee Hound has two locations. Bloomington is their main, and original and Normal, IL is their newist location.

  2. bj – where will you be, and therefore can recieve your grumpy schwag?

  3. Hey guys… just realized, a bunch of us from Aldo are headed up to Cleveland the afternoon of Sept. 14th for the SCAA cupping training on the 15th.

    From what we hear there will be drinking with some O-HI-O barista types the night of the 14th, despite the fact that’s sort of against the whole point of the next day’s exercises…

    Anyway, if you get to Aldo later in the afternoon on the 14th, you’ll probably miss all the barista competitors and competitors to be, since we’ll all be in O-HI-O.

    Maybe you can get out early and then join us in Cleveland?

  4. Hey Rich,

    We wouldn’t even be able to get to Pittsburgh until after you close on the 14th because I have to work that day. Boo work. But we want to see your space, so we’ll stay the night in Pittsburgh, have breakfast at Aldo, and then head over to Cleveland. Maybe we can meet you then? We really want to meet you guys.

  5. We will figure something out… that danged SCAA always has to pick the wrong dates for everything 😉
