the yawning silence, this blog assures you, has more to do with an excess of bloggable events — resulting in (a) a severe time lack and (b) decisionary paralysis — than blog-fatigue (or, even better, a trip to origin. this blog feels so left out.). the topical choice: now-local french espresso badness, barista hair treatise, telling machine maintenance escapades, berne run-up, jimseven’s el salvadors, the schecter silence watch. hmmmm … forget it. hoffmann has something far more revelatory about — wow — the seemingly amateurish administrative machinery of the world barista championship (no machine specs? no competition dates?). schnaikes.
