Wow!

How cool to see the progression of their drinks, how they are highlighted, and the different techniques.  Mark Pfaff sure did have a strange looking tamp!  looking forward to the next set.

Hey Mark,

I hope you don't think that I was dissin' you.  On my post that I did the other day, I was talking about something else, not you.  

I'll write you an email about that later.

I wish that I could have watched more competitors.... that's where I learned so much these past few years.  I've found that it's easier to compete if I just don't watch.  Maybe I should take a year off or so, to just watch my friends do their thing...

Nah!

Woah! I thought it was all in jest! :) You mean there was something serious behind it? :).

Fire off that email Billy!

In the meantime, I gotta say, I really enjoyed seeing you "work" at the USBC, esp. in the highlighted round... you were so "on" it wasn't funny. It's like watching a budding virtuoso at work, and I'm not kidding one bit.

Mark

Hi guys,

That's a very interesting photo essay there, and thanks a lot of posting it!

I do have one question though- everyone has such different ways of tamping, its intriguing :P

Did most of the competing baristi there use the staub tamp method?  Or the schomer pack?  Or any other form?  I'd be curious to know :>

I doubt that i could carry off Sandy or Mark's tamping style.  It looks very taxing on the joints :S
