Topic: 2009 First Atlanta and N Georgia MeetUp (2 msgs / 56 lines)
1) From: David Yeager
Hi Y'all,
We have been invited to hold our next Meet-Up at Counter Culture 
Coffee's cupping room near Georgia Tech in downtown Atlanta. It will 
be a coffee appreciation day. After an Intro to Cupping, the 
homeroasters amongst us will be invited to share our artisan coffees 
in an "Open Cupping" session. (Bring 3 oz of your finest home roasted 
beans to share, if you'd like.) Afterwards CCC will strut their stuff.
Our host, David LaMont , have also invited us to play with their new 
Clover brewer as well as to try our hands at espresso on their La 
Marzocco FB80. There will also be demonstrations of latte art.
We will have an assortment of home roasting equipment there, but we 
won't be able to do any actual roasting this time because the venue 
is a restored historical structure. (Think old wooden buildings.)
This should be a fine afternoon for coffee fans of all kinds.
So, come join us on Saturday January 24th at 2pm at the King Plow 
Arts Center, 887 West Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318. Please check 
Google or Yahoo maps for specific directions. "The Food Studio" (next 
door) has closed, but there are still excellent on-line maps available.
If you think you might be attending, please let me know either here 
or off-list so we can give them a head count. Bring a friend, if you'd like.
Some of you always ask if you can bring snacks or a put luck dish. 
The answer this time is definitely "Yes."  If you are interested in 
roasting some beans for this meeting and are looking for a 
suggestion, think African.
I hope to see you there.
David

David,
I would love to attend, but just can't swing the drive. Maybe next time.
Brian, in Columbia
