Does anyone know of a shop or roaster that holds cupping classes in the Houston area?

Check the Greenwaycoffee.com site from time to time or follow david buehrer (@greenwaybarista) on Twit or, better yet, visit Greenway Coffee in Greenway Plaza and talk to anyone behind the counter.

off topic:  I was at Revival Market today for lunch and got a chance to talk to the Barista du jour.  She told me she was trained at Greenway.  Hopefully, the coffee there (at Revival) will be improving.

Dear Emrad,

That is somewhat good news to hear.  My less-than-optimistic response to that (I have Dutch ancestry) is that they have good people teaching them on a La Marzocco Linea and there still will be a steep learning curve on the Revival Faema E61.  The most important behavior I hope they learn is to sample their machine and to pour out the 'sink shots' rather than to 'pull blindly' and inadvertently serve them up.  Greenway baristas are the only ones whom I've seen discard shots in Houston.  I do not hold out for a rapid improvement.  Parenthetically, Paulie's Restaurant is also sending their baristas to learn at Greenway.  I will attempt to practice patience and forbearance - I just dislike paying for it, that's all.
Since you were there - what did you think of their espresso?

I thought Paulie's closed down.  did they just move?  (Assuming you're talking about the Paulie's that used to be at both Kirby and Holcombe and at Westheimer and Shepherd - well near enough).

I think they moved.  I was sitting next to their chief barista, Michael, I think, at the Greenway counter and I am repeating what he said.

Greenway has been holding cuppings on Friday mornings. Revival has been improving. James (who used to work at Catalina & Greenway) has been training at Revival. He has been through UBC & 4th (Latte Art)in Chicago's Coffeefest.
