Crossing Borders

Nick Brown of Artigiano and Dwell Time fame came by our shop today. He sent Chris and I an e-mail a couple days ago alerting us of his upcoming presence here south of the Canadian border, and requesting a small get together to alleviate some of the withdrawal symptoms he's experienced since moving to the coffee-culture lacking city of Toronto. Since we had the pleasure of meeting him during his whirlwind trip a couple months ago, both Chris and I were excited to reconnect with someone as enthusiastic as Nick. After letting him get his hands dirty on the GB5 we happily took him to check out Grumpy, a spot he didn't have the pleasure of visiting last time he came to the States. We made the introductions all around and quickly enjoyed a french press of Ecco's COE Bolivian that Grumpy had in stock. A few hours later we walked out sated from hours of coffee chatter and promises to raise demitasses together again tomorrow. Since I just returned from his old stomping grounds of Vancouver it was fun to hear his perspective on the sites and sips I experienced on my first trip to BC. Thanks for coming Nick B, you're welcome any time.

Yep. We met Mya (sp?) but not you ;)
You guys are just so busy we ended up hiding at Hastings most of the time. And Burnaby with Vince and John, which was awesome! We asked about you but I think we asked a newbie...
