This is a cross post from Home-Barista, just trying to see if there is enough interest out there for this;

"I got an email back today from Jenny @ Blue Bottle about the specific details on the tour information at their roasting facility in Oakland. I was hoping that there would be enough interest from those that have came to the get togethers that we would be able to do this.

The tour consists of just that a tour of the facility and then a tasting of either up to 6 single origins, or a tasting of one coffee prepared three different ways. Then at the end of the tour/tasting a half pound of coffee chosen by the barista that leads the group.

The cost is $15.00 per person, or a min of $150.00. So I am looking for ten people!

All of the tours are done Sundays at 3:30, currently the next spot open is June 24th and sounds like they have more spots open after that date. So does the date work and is there enough interest?"

The group size is ten or more and if you can't make the 24th, just say which Subdays in July you can make it going to shoot for the largest group possible assuming we make it over 10.

Still looking for a few good geeks, changed the dates to August 12th or later.

And there are a lot of roasters that would do this exact tour for FREE.  Maybe we should all start charging?
