Jason Haeger just wrote from Texas to pass on news of the 2008 SWRBC: Hi Chris, I just wanted to inform you of the latest. The 2008 SWRBC will be held in Austin, TX in tandem with the SCRBC from October 31 through November 1. No word on the exact location yet. The official machine sponsor for the WBC this season is Nuova Simonelli, which means they’ll be competing with Aurelia machines. Mahlkonig is the grinder sponsor, and they will be running K30 doserless grinders, and K30 duals. Take care, — Jason Haeger Owner: www.tx-coffee.com www.espressotrainer.com Thanks for passing that along.
