Somebody mentioned that SCAA had put audio recordings from the sessions at the SCAA 2003. And sure enough, they have. When you register and pay a 10 dollar fee you get access to all of them. They're supposed to put 85 sessions online, but not of all of them are there yet. The sound quality isn't so good, but it is ok. Today I've been listening to some sessions about green coffee and roasting that were very interesting.

I've also read a transcript from a 2002 session called "Technology in the craft" (presenters: Mike Sheldrake, Stephan Diedrich, Robert Hensley, Michael Sivetz). Excellent stuff. Lots of information about how coffee roasting works both in theory and practice. They even sketch out a method for developing your own roast profile for the coffee you are using, and how to manually operate a Diedrich roaster! Great read.

We have a big heat wave going here in Norway now. It is happening all over the country. In Bergen they had 87 F (30,5 celsius) yesterday, which is a new record. Here in Oslo we had something like 27 celsius (80,6 F) in the shade, and that is really enough for me. I stayed in my flat most of the time and did paper work. And of course, I drink a lot of iced coffee :)
