SCAA Anaheim Last Day Report
Road Reports article by Mark Prince

Mark's last day at the SCAA, a harried, fact and fun filled day, but also one that left him feeling suprisingly down.

How is it you didn't run into Tom? Or did you?

What were you going to say regarding Diedrich?

Hi Mark!

Loved the reports.  Did you get a chance to check out Hearthware's newest model, which is supposed to replace the precision?  Curious as to what your thoughts are and if you have any pics.

Thanks,
Matt

I don't know how to tell you this, Mark, but women who look like that are *always* "snobbish" to guys who look like us... sigh...

I met Tom Day Two (see the picture of him on that day's report).

I don't know how I managed this, but I missed the Hearthware booth ENTIRELY the three days of the conference. Yikes.

Regarding the snobs at the Brasilian booth, the guys were just as bad as the women in terms of being approachable :)

I think Mark was filled in at the alt.coffee site about Hearthware, but when I talked to them, they basically said it was larger capacity, LCD display so you can adjust temp and time and they are adding vents so you can make accomidations for the outside temp (for you east coast people).

Subject: Great articles!
 

Your articles made me long for the days I was involved in the coffee industry-and even got to go to the SCAA show last year in Miami!  You got much more schwag than I did last year (I didn't get any coffee beans), but I managed a calendar, some Earl Grey tea for my husband, some little plastic trinkets from Greater Houston Coffee Council (the city I'm from...they're lobbying to make Houston a coffee port), a burlap shoulder bag from the Puerto Rico booth, and a nifty little latte cup necklace from a place called Silver Legacy.  Man, it was great!  I had so much great coffee there, too!  I was in heaven!

I'm so envious of you Mark...

Kari
