Minneapolis area roasters. We have a date, June 30 a time 2pm and a location BlackSheep Coffee Cafe (705 Southview Blvd., South Saint Paul, MN (651) 554-0155) For those of you who missed the early posts Peter Middlecamp the owner of Black Sheep is both a new shop owner and Barista competitor yet still placed 6th this year at the US championships. He is also a very nice guy. Here is the email Peter sent me today: "Sounds great Jared. I'll have some cupping samples and maybe some signature beverage ideas for next year for you to try... See you on the 30th in the afternoon. Timewise, (4:00 or so) I will be headed to a wedding reception. That time will work well. Pete"
Thanks, Jared, for doing all this to arrange this. I may be bringing other homeroasters, too. Barbara On Jun 15, 2007, at 11:57 AM, Jared wrote: <Snip>
Unfortunately, my vacation planner/wife/SHMBO, has decided that we will not be in the Minneapolis area to visit her relatives untill this event is over. Bummer! I was looking forward to meeting some of you folks. (I will be packing fresh roasted Etiopian Harrar, along with grinding and brewing equipment for the trip anyway.)

Are we still on? I hope so. Barbara On Jun 25, 2007, at 12:14 PM, Bob wrote: <Snip>
I am likely not going to make it - too tight on the finances, and just finished a long trip... Sry, Brett On 6/26/07, Bob wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com
Barbara and all other home roasters, we are not only on for a meet up but will be drinking coffee from the best Barista (Peter Middlecamp) in the area from the best roaster (other than us) (Paradise roasters) in the area. We will likely be trying out some of his signature drink ideas for next years US barista championships. If it is just Barbara and I it will be a smashing good time and if a bunch of other roasters come it will be even better. Mike McCoffee will be providing the Kona glazed, mahi crusted fancy pants food for the event but unfortunately it will be a few thousand miles away so we are out of luck if anyone tries to actually eat it. Here are the vital stats of the event again and again all are welcome.
