Wow - what a great event! I can't imagine that there are even enough
roasters around here to participate in something like that. Well, we do
have a few... including George Howell not too far from where I live.
All they need to make it perfect would be to add some barbeque...mmm...
bbq!! Oh man, I can't wait for summer!
Wait - I'm leaving for a sunny island in a little more than 2 wks.. :D

I never realized there were so many roasters in Columbus!
I'll have to check them out next time I'm in that area.

... I thought the only people who voluntarily lived in Columbus were in the
Federal Witness Relocation Program.  :-)

There used to be another craft roaster here, named Tom I think, but he
vanished years ago.    Last I heard, he'd set up shop some where in
Oakland, CA.     He was a nice guy - I was real sorry to see him leave
town.
I've lived here voluntarily for 41 years because I got a job here!

What about Jovan, Yeah Me Too. I can't see him participating in 
anything, but thats the ultimate low profile local roaster.
Now lets see, there's OSU employees, State Gov and the Gap. So there 
are even more shady reasons to be in Columbus than  Witness Relocation
(Just had to add on to that barb)

So my wife & I went to the event yesterday - sampled about 10 brews
from various local commercial roasters.
Of those we tasted, most were unexciting.    Some were even unpleasant
to taste.    We liked only one sample better than what we had had at
home before driving down town.   (I had roasted Ethiopia Gera Jimma -
Nano Challa - city+ in a very balky Z&D roaster and brewed it in a
Krups Moka Brew.)
It seem to me that most samples were brewed weaker than I would have
done - but what do I know?
Most were doing Melitta style pour over or Chemex, although one stop
was using a vacuum brewer - even had a balance vacuum brewer on
display, but not in action.
The best sample (in our opinion)  was Ethiopia Tchembe from Cafe
Brioso.   Fruit bomb!   I had never heard of that variety.    TOM -
what about that variety???
I think there were 10 or 11 homeroasters in the competition.   I don't
remember who won, or with what bean.
But anyway we had a good time and hung out with 4 or 5 other home
roasters and traded stories and tips.
I hope the North Market does the event again.
