Excellent way to "Start your engines" as this NASCAR laiden community would say.  Can't wait to have 'yall' around these parts.  It's going to be a blast!

I forgot to add this to the article, so I'll do it here (and make this a sticky for a day or two).

What would you like to see in this year's coverage of the SCAA show? Start typing things you're most interested in!

I can't guarantee I'll be able to cover it all, but give me ideas on what to cover, what to take photos of, what to place emphasis on, and I'll do my best.

"The Mystery of the Machine: What Really Matters in Making Great Espresso

Sunday, April 9, 9 - 10:15 a.m., Room: 201AB

Presenters:
Mark Crawford - Espresso Specialists, Inc.
Michael Teahan - Espresso Part Source


Description:
In the first part of this session, Michael will contrast American perspectives of technical standards for espresso machines with those of Italian manufacturers. In part two, Mark begins a discussion on espresso quality and superautos can we establish technical standards for achieving great espresso out of superautos?"

Should be of interest to your readers.

ARGH. That time is one of the ones I've committed to the USBC (the semifinals).

Marshall... whatabout a guest blog entry regarding that... from, say, you? ;)

Maybe. But, Michael's a friend. So, I'll be highly biased. Maybe Angelo could write it up. :-)
On the other hand, Greg Scace will be there.

Terry is so modest, his booth was amazing.  I look forward to meeting everyone again and also annoyed I'll miss espressofest and Michael's talk.  However I'm more concerned that my little GS1 has made the trip safely...will find out on friday.

Thanks Paul, I always thought you to have a great eye.

If you need help with your booth from time to time let me know.......

I also hope the GS2 makes it as well. Looking forward to visiting.......


Mark,

I would be happy to post something to the Blog with regards to Michael and Marks talk. I even have a camera. Let me know if you think that would be helpful.

Can anyone explain something about why he say "how will the SCAA come through its most recent crisis"?


It seems that there will be a lot of interesting things there.  It does cost so much!  If I could be there, I would surely do something.  But, ......, hope it can really help.
