Ha!  That picture of me on the front page just needs a tophat and monocle.....

Great article - I wish I could have seen more baristas performing.  Jhonni was great backstage, and I can imagine other reasons why you might be visiting Anne's shop aside from her coffee... ;)

She was cool - amazing how she held it together for the finals, seeing how ill she was.

Ulp. I didn't want to mention that about Anne - but you did ;)

Yeah, I was just so impressed with her, especially because of the temporary illness issues she was having.

It's a fantastic photo of you, Jim, and as soon as I saw it in my pool of about 900 photos from the WoC / WBC, I knew it was the one I wanted on the front cover.

Welcome to the Dallacorte Club, Mark ;-)

I've been working about half a year on a 3group 20.03 and I learned more about the taste of coffee than in the 2 years before that. It's a wonderful machine although the preinfusion is not completeley equal between single and double shots; the single shots come faster out of the pf and tend to be slightly sour, that's why DC advises the owner to put some more temperature to the "single group". in my opinion a smaller cicleur would be the better solution, but that means that You mustn't change the pf's between the groups.

The prices you were told for the Mini would be extremely cheap; in Germany the Mini is between 1700 and 1900 Euros; that would be over 2000 Dollars. Also the Mini's temperature control is a point that's not clear yet. Referring to Ingo Rogalla (the new swiss importer and the main cause for the big traffic at the DC booth) the "Delta" is about 4 deg C, while the professional machines have a "Delta" of only 1 dec C. Some members of the German kaffee-netz have shortly bought a Mini, but there are no temperature measurements by now. I'm very curious for the results...

I've also been to the show but have only seen the Baristas from Italy and New Zealand. Antonelli's show was really incredible ;-)

Some pics can also be found here (mines only as link): http://www.kaffee-netz.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=9686

Greetings \\//

So... uh.

Forum folks. Regulars. Community peeps.

Was this article just so boring that there's very little response or commentary for it? ;) A lot of thought and effort went into this one. I'm finalising the next report this eve, but a bit disheartened over the lack of responses, and the "3" and "2" votes the article garnered.

Just a commentary ;)

Mark

I really enjoyed the articles, thoughtful, informative and well written! Thank you for your report on Bern, brought back wonderful memories from my trip there in 2003. Looking forward to more of your articles.

Thank you!

Hi Mark,

I am not sure why, but I seem to take these great articles from you completely for granted - very bad habit. I really liked the article and cant wait for the next part. FWIW, until now, I never rated any article on CG (or any website), simply because I hadn't quite understood the system. Perhaps you should consider that many people like the articles but simply dont vote?

Anyway, BRING ON THE NEXT PART! As a  Dane, cant wait to hear your impressions about our boy!

:-) Mads
