Well, if you didn’t already figure it out. I have to C O N C E N T R A T E on some things that makes it so that I can’t be focused as I would prefer on the “Bean Chaser Blog.”
I appreciate friends like Jason Dominy, Jim Hoffman and crew, Mark Prince, Dan at HB, Chemically Imbalanced, Tonx, Shannon Hudgens, Kevin & Regina @ Crema Roasters, Geoff Corey, Scott Conary, and I will even thank Nick Cho, and I can’t leave out the team at Octane and by name Tony. The home roasting ability of George Holt. Finally, I thank, the professional roasting of Intelligensia Roasters and Counter Culture Coffee.
There is no certian order to that list. Some listed had a HUGE impact on my life and I will be forever thankful. And there is some there that taught me a huge lesson on what not to do (I mean that good and bad). I will have forgotten some, I guess. It’s is unavoidable. Some people I have there faces in my head and I can’t remember their names.
If I hadn’t found Mark Prince in a Google search for “French Press” this would have never been started and I hadn’t have ever messaged Tonx, I would have never found Hudge, and thus, I would have never had my first INCREDIBLE shot of espresso (single origin, mind you). If I hadn’t found Hudge I wouldn’t have this massive two group Faema in my kitchen, which in the words of my brother-in-law “is the first and last thing you see in that house.”
