Barry, I'll be in Hawaii for about a month starting the end of May. I'll be on a hectic & changing schedule, but maybe we'll have a chance to get together. How close are you to Pearl Harbor? --MikeW On 3/5/07, Barry Luterman wrote: <Snip> -- "In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable." --Dwight D.

All the great things to see and do in Hawaii and the trip to Barry's home may be the highlight! Brewtus and Mazzer taking pride of place on the classy granite counter, freshly roasted and rested beans galore, naked portafilter and bodum clear glass cups to show off Barry's glorious shots and expose my poor beginner attempts - no place to hide! Crema, body, mouthfeel; that machine really cranks out quality shots and microfoam. Plus when the shot is Harar Horse 30, properly dialed in, it doesn't get any better. Barry's better half had the other angles covered too. Thoughtful enough to sit my non-coffee-drinkiing son down in front of a super playstation screen so he was not bored with our coffee compulsion. With our packed itinerary I was worried we might not be able to connect - I'm sure happy we were able to make it. Mahalo ! We are in the Honolulu airport waiting for a flight to the big island. A quick chance to wifi a reply before heading for Kona country. Looking forward to checking out some of the advice I received on and off list. On 3/5/07, Barry Luterman wrote: <Snip> -- MichaelB
