To be honest, after reading his comments on eGullet that left the impression that no one on the planet can make coffee as good as him and no one cares about coffee as much as him, I was left with the feeling that this guy is a complete douchebag rather than the friendly, team-mate mentor that the Post article pointed out. Granted, I just wanna clarify that it's strictly my impressions of his eGullet posts that lead me to think he's a jerkwad rather than any official authorization that he is indeed such. I don't think the judges have come back with an official report, yet. But I will say that after reading what he had to say on eGullet, there's no freakin' way I'd wander in to anything that guy touches. It was shocking to see how other coffee entrepreneurs are kissing his beans. Admittedly late to the discussion. Whatever your "impression" was, based on that eG thread, please don't wander in to touch me anywhere. The state of restaurant coffee is slowly improving, but is still generally very poor... in DC, and pretty much everywhere else. There are too few exceptions. To disagree with this statement is an understandable and common ignorance about coffee. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
