What the fuck this *even* means, I can barely comprehend but from what I can gather, here's the scoop:
- There was a conference last week called The Specialty Coffee of America Exposition in Anaheim, CA (SCAA).
- Some chick named Jaime Vandura from Coffea Cultura was conducting "private cuppings" (don't ask) and available for chatting at their booth at said event.
- All of this information was publicly posted on their site.
Then, the chick leaves this comment on the site on 4/18 at 4:34am:
"I have left Anaheim already, my apologies. There were some confrontations with ex-Gorilla Coffee baristas who seemed to be looking for new conflicts. I thought it was better to depart and deal with it later. -J"
Then some other dude named Matthew Hill left the following comment on 4/18 at a more reasonable 10:24pm:
"Jaime – Sorry I missed you. Yes, the Gorilla thing is out of control. At least one of them was at our booth and very hostile – said decaf espresso is not possible..."
Ok, so again, I have zero clue what all this actually means, but I'm slightly confused by reports of ex-Gorilla employees who now seem to be looking to take their Battle Royale national?
Anyone have scoop?
