Espresso Parts is Portland Bound!
“Eastbound and down, loaded up and truckin’
Ah we gonna do what they say can’t be done
We’ve got a long way to go, and a short time to get there
I’m eastbound, just watch old Bandit run”
Dave “Doc” Ringwood and myself all get to head down to Portland for a series of PID retrofits on some La Marzoccos. There was 2 installs to do, then came 3, and now I hear there are 5 PID installs. Yikes!
So our little day trip today has the feeling of Smokey and the Bandit.
Well maybe not… We are headed South not East. As far as I know no one has ever said you can’t do 5 PID installs in 1 day, and well we have a only short way to go. So maybe the analogy isn’t a good fit.
We however are going to some of my favorite coffee spots in what has become my favorite coffee town. However with Duane’s coffee back in Seattle, Seatown may have an edge with it’s variety of coffees. Fresh Pots 1 & 2, and the others I assume are Stumptown machines. I am assuming though.
Anyway if you feel like following along I’ll should be posting ‘pon my Flickr account today. The later evening should see some great food as usual in Portland and then it is Horse Brass time! Always great folks in Portland too.
