I think the author has a pretty skewed view of the South. There's actually lots of great coffee happening down here and has been for years. He makes it seem like we are coming into this totally open market where no one is doing anything interesting, and it's just not true. I think it gives the impression we think this way too, which we don't. It's not that big a deal because only industry people really read Sprudge, but the article has stoked some resentment from other industry people that I wish had been avoided.

There are so many things wrong with this article... but oh well. It's press. 

Understand where you are coming from. Have been interviewed and written about and the overwhelming majority write from their own understanding of what I say and miss the point or embellish things in an off putting way. What they write misrepresents or is just plain wrong of what I had said. If I was a writer I would have the interviewee read the article before it goes to press.

It hasn't all been that bad and have been interviewed by a couple of intelligent writers but overall, would rather not bother to be interviewed.

Reading the coffee shrub articles consistently makes me realize how very little I know about coffee. They're just so well written and so informative without coming off as nerdy or too in depth. I especially love the short fundamentals of place series.

I also appreciate and identify with the writers' philosophy and outlook on coffee. Kind of middle of the road and well informed. Machine harvested coffees aren't the worst just not very attractive. Quality is partly about varietals but also about location and processing. I also love how they're opinionated but back it up with knowledge

Thanks for the tip on that site! It's great to discover material that conveys expertise so effectively. That's one thing I really appreciate about the coffee world; it seems to have a lot of perceptive people who are genuinely interested in quality.
