Topic: ? CSA Points ? (8 msgs / 235 lines)
1) From: ginny
At minimum 350 points for going international...
No minus points for a "cappuccino" on the road.

2) From: John David Huddle
Before my 15 day trip to China, as a chaperone for members of the Columbus 
Symphony Youth Orchestra  ( www.dispatch.com/china ), I roasted up some of 
Tom's Italian Espresso blend.   After suitable rest, (for the beans - not 
for me) I vac packed several 13.1 g.  samples of the beans.
My checked bag held a 2 tasse Bialetti electric Moka pot (works on 110 or 
220 volts), a Turkish (Zass)  grinder, the vac packed beans, and a small 
pair of scissors to open the vac bags. and a few other criticlal items.   
Most mornings, I had my eye-opener caffeine before leaving the hotel room 
for breakfast.
So  - how many CSA points do I earn for this effort?
Perhaps some points may be taken away when I admit to buying a tall 
cappuccino at *$ in the Hong Kong airport while waiting for our flight to 
depart - BUT, our wake up call was at 3:30 AM that day (got to bed about 
midnight), and I just didn't have time to grind, brew, drink, clean up, 
shower and pack before heading down to the lobby at 4:15 AM to get on the 
bus to the airport.

SweetMaria's started in Columbus.
Funny to see Westerville OH in the group.  Welcome, Dave!
I grew up in Bucyrus.  One of the elementary school teachers (5th =
had a sister who taught in Westerville.  So, students in each class =
would be
penpals for part of the school year.  The sister teachers would exchange =
letters when they met, so the kids didn't have to pay postage.
My penpal was named Dave, too.  Dave Mc(something).  Thanks for bringing
back a nice little memory.

ion of SweetMaria's
I just moved to Fairfield, I never new Sweet Maria's when it was in 
Ohio but I do feel the pain when UPS is taking a week trucking my beans =
across the country :(
I comfort myself by realizing that it was probably better for SM (and 
hence us) to move out there.
Anyone know of a good coffee shop in the Cincy area?  I went to one 
next to a barber who cut my hair, the espresso was crema-less, bitter, =
and had a bunch of grinds in it.  Blech.

Neat, David-
The logistics of it all- and over seventy young musicians, to boot!
It's good to see some communities' fondness for the arts:
    *  Itinerary
      15 days, 6 cities, 5 concerts
    * Roster
      72 central-Ohio high school students on tour
    * CSYO
      The Web site of the Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestra
Congratulations, David!

I met Tom when he had a small shop on 2nd Street, 1/2 block off High Street 
in Columbus, OH
I was really bummed when he moved to the west coast.
