Mel and I went to Portland this past weekend. I was there filming for a new video that Bellissimo is creating for Baristas. Mel got a little shopping and sight-seeing in. We had a wonderful time with all the kids from Stumptown, Crema, Albina Press, Bellissimo, Barista Magazine and everyone else.

Check out pics.



Midwest Regional Barista Jam

I took part in the Midwest Regional Barista Jam last weekend. Sandy, Duck, Jeff T. (Thuggy T) and company were great! View all my images here.




The Bottles are in.

As part of winning the USBC, I got my mug on some bottles of Vanilla syrup. Well, they're in.

Finally aired.

My story by Vince Gerasole finally aired last night. If you missed it, check it out here. The video will only be up for a short period of time, so get there quick!



Base: Touched.

I just got off the phone with Vince Gerasole of CBS 2. He says my segment is scheduled to air THIS SUNDAY. I asked him about it, how he felt, and he said he was really proud of it and that the exec's had liked it so much that they wanted to keep it for ratings time (July)...that was the holdup.

Tune in this Sunday at 10 to CBS 2, Chicago. You'll be staring at my mug.
