Nice article Alan.  I just wish there were events like this here in the Eastern US (not sure if they have them elsewhere in the States).  I've been plannign an '04 trip to Australia and New Zealand - maybe I'll just have to time it with the annual occurrence of this event!

Subject: if you need help next time,
 

Hey Alan,
Nice article.  I figured that instead of just thinking it, I could actually say it for once.  Oh, and next time, if you need someone to go with you and carry your stuff, you know how to find me :)

Subject: But where's the barista competition?
 

Nice article Alan.  It's great to see that the competition is getting hotter in the coffee captial of Australia.  However, what happened to the barista of the year competition?  I'd love to see an "Independant" competition to showcase our masters and encourage newbies (and their employers) to take the job seriously.
