Hey, I had to open at NaDean's (not Dino's, the other location) today and it's about 12:30 and I'm really starting to feel only having 3 hours of sleep so I am going to have to take off for the afternoon. You will still be able to get a great double, but I'm the only one that pulls the SO shots (pulls them well at least...) so perhaps another time. Sorry I missed you today, I had planned on staying and hanging out but it's getting hard to hold my eyes open. Another time! -Bry Bryan Wray NaDean's Coffee Place/ Dino's Coffee Lounge Kalamazoo, MI "It is my hope that people realize that coffee is more than just a caffeine delivery service, it can be a culinary art"- Chris Owens. --------------------------------- Looking for last minute shopping deals?

As it turns out, I did catch Bryan at Dino's. My sister, my niece and I stopped down about 12:30 and were treated to several great shots of Sweet Maria coffees that Bryan had roasted and had in his private stash. My favorite was the Misty Valley, and also had shots of Cameroon and a nice Kenya. In addition, his Behmor was on a table so I was able to actually see it, which was fun after reading so much about it here on the list. I got to meet NaDean, too. Dino's is a nice spot. It is in the college area of town and has a very comfortable college ambiance to it. I would highly recommend to anyone who is in the area to stop in and visit with Bryan. Thanks, Bryan!

I was just about to update that I did actually catch up with you, you beat me to it! Really glad that we got to meet, and like I said, anyone who is in the area can call down to dino's (269-492-7200) anytime and either I will probably be there, or be there soon. Again, really glad that I got to meet up with you today and if you are ever back in the area I would love to share more with you, and next time I will be sure to get a roasting demo in for you. I didn't realize that you had been there as long as you had (like 2 hours!! time flies...) when I wanted to start the demo, that would have made it like 3 hours before you actually left! So, yeah.. next time, but this time was a lot of fun and I'm glad that I sat down to relax for just a minute so that we could catch up with each other. -Bry Bryan Wray NaDean's Coffee Place/ Dino's Coffee Lounge Kalamazoo, MI "It is my hope that people realize that coffee is more than just a caffeine delivery service, it can be a culinary art"- Chris Owens. --------------------------------- Be a better friend, newshound, and know-it-all with Yahoo!
