new forum: trade winds

Postby Alistair Durie on Sat Feb 02, 2008 7:12 pm

"openings, closings, career moves, hearsay, rumour, and fact"

I grabbed this idea from a local restaurant industry forum that I frequent. I don't think we hear a lot about peoples movements around the industry except what seems in inner circles, I thought perhaps we could share a little more about whats going on, peoples coming and going. I'm not sure if it will work. Perhaps the coffee industry is a little too sensitive to that?

Open to suggestions.

But how does that relate to "coffee industry press, hearsay, rumour, and fact?"

It sounds more like a gossip forum section than anything by that title. Is that what you wanted?

For people to let others know they are moving positions, or companies, or they are opening a store. I've seen it work on a local level, not sure how it will apply here. There's sure a ton of gossip in the industry (know anything about that Nick?)... maybe there needs to be a place for it?

I've got no expectations. We'll see what happens.

Here is one rumor that has been going around the Canadian coffee scene for a little while Alistair.
The word is that the guys from Elysian room are about to buy shares of Origins Coffee Roasters.
Its just a rumor .Guess the only ones that can confirm this is you Alister or Robert.

John and Drew at Origins are good friends and spending time with them and cupping with them is the total of it.
