Great article Thomas.  I particularly liked the nature of your questions, which probe the rationale and motivations behind the craft. I can honestly state that I'm a bit envious of the Norwegian espresso scene compared to what I see in the New York City area.  We have yet to see any widespread focus on quality and consistency and more worrisome (and a major factor in the problem) is the failure to properly compensate barsitas and provide career development paths.  I look forward to seeing more articles from you in the future!
