housekeeping and whatnot

some updates to communicate. a few weeks ago 'the forum that shall not be named' decided to 'go public,' meaning they gave the go ahead for those of us who love it and read it twice (thrice even) daily to mention it by name on our various web sites. so, please go visit coffeed if you really want to hear it from the best of the best in the coffee industry.

also, updated blogroll and links, right.

barista jam is coming along well. almost got all my stuff together. now just working through processes and logistical flow. la marzocco espresso machine? check. clover? check. great espresso and coffee to play with all day? check. now all we need are baristas. come on, baristas.and i'm having our logo professionally rendered. here are a couple of the leading candidates so far... i think i want the coloring of the top bean here rendered in the 3-d style below. this new logo--well, my kwee rendering of it on microsoft paintshop--has already begun to adorn our bags of coffee. we will turn this into a 3' x 6' banner and also use it for t-shirts, both of which i expect to have on display and for sale in time for christmas. t-shirt will likely be brown...go figure...with the phrase, 'brown (coffee) is the new black (coffee)' somewhere on it. what do you think of these logos?

The second one has a less animated look. I like the 3-D texture in the bean. Cheers!
