The standard of entrants proved extremely high and the eagerly anticipated finalists have been announced. They are:
TWOBEANS Speciality Coffee Bar

You are invited to attend an open SCAE meeting next Thursday 28th April at 4pm in 3fe. This is an important meeting to discuss significant issues in SCAE and decisions we have to make in the very near future. The World of Coffee is now only 9 weeks away and promises to be a fantastic and challenging event. We also have to consider the proposal to merge SCAE with SCAA which will create one worldwide coffee community.
