We want to send out our congratulations to Ben Chen on the birth of his first child, a son by the name of Isaac. Ben has been a driving force in getting barismo open and running. His contributions helped Hong and myself get the shop moving in the face of so many difficulties early on. The vision that barismo is has all it's beginnings in the blog and coffee meetup Ben often hosted or participated in. If you appreciate what we do at barismo, you owe a good deal of thanks to Ben for his impact on what we are.
It's going to be a while before the little guy can hold a tamper but I'm sure there is a custom version in the works. Congratulations and best wishes to Ben and his growing family!
