Hi Frank-
Robin (spelling?) hosted one in Berkeley last summer? I can't even remember
when it was now. Everyone brought some coffee and food to share. She had an
espresso machine and grinder so that wasn't necessary. Someone did bring
some extra FPs. I think everyone had a good time. Jeffery Pawlan showed
us his computer controlled roaster. It was a fun gathering. I would
participate in another one.
I've heard rumblings about a group that meets on Saturdays in the San Jose
area, but don't know how often that happens.
