the Kafe, dinner and just finished last batch of Malabar for 11 more LB
Ohana Blend. FWIW went through about 6# Ohana, 1/2# decaf espresso and 2#

Mike,
I'm getting to bed late myself. I just wanted to add my warmest
congratulations to the long list of well wishers.
I can not wait to get into town to have one of your double shots. Our
business, Jolinda's Roastery and Wine shop is coming along on schedule. I'm
so jealous of you getting your doors open before Christmas. I don't think w=
e
will make it. I know just what you are saying about the competition thing. =
I
covered that topic with my comments to Carlos.
We all have something special to offer. All of the new business offerings i=
n
this Speciality Coffee Trade are a strong statement that Speciality Coffee
is just starting to wake up the taste buds of the common coffee drinker.
I salute you Mike. Your a true Ambassador of Speciality Coffee and Pallet
reform.
Best Wishes,
Joe and Linda from Stevenson, Washington

I was doing 80-90 hour work weeks when I had my coffeehouse years ago.  It's 
not all hard work though, so get some rest while you can.  Usually the 2-4pm 
time was slow.
Oh, and for one semester, I was taking three classes and serving as the IU 
school paper photo editor.
Now I remember why I thought I needed to give it up to get married!  We all 
make bad choices.  I'd still have the business. ::grin::
I wish you the best.

I sure wish I could have been there!
I have NEVER had a great (not even "fairly good") espresso from a commercial
shop. I KNOW I would certainly get my world rocked with one of your shots,
Mike!
I entertained hopes of getting out to the Pacific NW in the near future, but
my son has changed his plans of settling there with his new bride -
consequently, I now have to find another excuse to get out that direction.
I don't think I can sway my (coffee non-drinker) to go just to visit Mike's
shop! 
Best to you Mike!

Hey Dennis, We had a free, yes free, Pink Martini concert in Roseburg this
summer at our "hafl shell in the park" concert series.  Iam working on
getting Sandy booked for the series some time in the future.

Bless you. Les! I have wonderful memories of Roseburg--we used to  
camp near there; and one year when my husband was a genetics grad  
student we drove out to a rabbit breeder there in order to take blood  
samples for the DNA. (I believe he was located near Mt. Nebo, the  
home of the "weather gpats").

My wife Pat and I stopped over to visit miKe and Bruce on Saturday...
Nice place, great location!  Had an excellent americano from miKe's
Ohana Blend, Pat had a latte, both had a sandwich from the kitchen -
tomato, mozzarella and basil on sourdough and then into the panini
press, oh yeah had mine with some peppered ham, very yummy!  Had a
nice chat with miKe and Bruce, met Ray their barista... I think they
are going to do well, looking forward to another visit soon!
Congratulations and good luck to both new business owners!
--Dave (yeah, that one)

The very best, Mike.  We're all there in spirit, and I can't imagine  
anyone better to do this.  Take a few deep breaths here and there as  
this week goes on.  Again, the very very best!!!!
