A good turnout for this time of year,  around 10 people showed this morning.
Michelle gave a presentation on coffee from the Indonesian islands area and
we had a cupping of Papua New Guinea, Estate Java and Sumatran Mandheling.
The Java estate was the favorite.  In the course of the presentation
Michelle was most laudatory about Tom's passion for coffee and cupping
skills.
Joe showed his prototype roaster but asked for no publicity for now.
Later on Silvana  gave a select few of us a short demonstration of latte art
using a La Marzocco.
Great news: Michelle has agreed to do cuppings, different beans each time,
for our future meetings.
Next month after the cupping Fulton will demonstarte his hottop roaster.
And for March Silvana has agreed to demonstrate espresso making and latte
art for the whole group.
