Hey, it's Fiona Lawler :)
I am not a coffee consultant for Myrtle, my café is a customer, I know it says on the UKBC website I work for Myrtle, but that's completely wrong and I have no idea why it's there.
Just thought I should let you know, I'm not fancy consultant just a barista in the Paisley Arts Centre Café, thanks!

Hi guys,

we have an awsum training room with a Synesso, 3 grp PID'd Marzy, 3 grp Della corte and 3 grp Spaz upstairs and a sample roaster too. Plus a new Probat 12kg roaster and many other toys to play with ( WBC Compac, 3 K30's, 8 mazzer supers, Bunch of Spaz S5's, 2 compact S5's, 2 grp PID'd Marzy and joe just got a couple of varios too.)


holy crap that sounds awesome. I was planning to pay Joe a visit a while ago, but I totally forgot about it. I will have to put it back on my to-do list, hearing what sort of toys you have there.

Regards,
dsc.

Thanks Mat, I will amend the list accordingly subject to any further information. The UKBC list had 'Redgate' on the list, can you confirm it is 'Redgrave' please? :)

It's true he does and it was a right shock I can tell you!
We had to cross over the motorway bridge on the way back to make sure it hadn't been an hallucination!
This week I are mainly ready to get back to making muffins!"

Rhode Island website says that Luke Tariq Lamb is the Master Barista at the Bolton cafe.

I visit Bolton regularly so will do some fieldwork research in the near future.
