2 weeks and counting

March 2, 2008

Full run through day at the training lab happened this morning.  All seven of our Chicago team hopefuls put their most well prepared foot forward and represented.  It was a fairly simple affair consisting solely of barista team peoples who played all roles (bus, tech, judge)  It was interesting on a whole variety of levels.  Seeing the various strengths and weakness in each person was curious… Charles and Goodrich had wonderful banter.  Deanna moved like a machine while Alex was very complete overall.  The simple act of playing each of the different roles I think helped me more than anything.  Being able to stand outside of a routine but still be that close and pick it apart can really aid one in seeing their own faults.  I don’t want to give away anyone’s thunder so I’ll refrain from details, but several of the signature drinks were easily better than what  I feel I came with last year (my own drink this year included)  Polishing is still needed by one and all, but things seem to be in the right direction.  Stay tuned.
