Where in the world is Stephen Morrissey?23/08/2008
Has anyone seen this man?
last seen in Copenhagen July 2008 when he received the honor of being crowned, the World Barista Champion of 2008. Since then Stephen Morrissey has all but disappeared with only 1 blog post, no Flickr, Facebook, Barista Exchange, Myspace, text messages, in fact in my mind absolutely no commentary what so ever!
Whats the Barista community to do? Sure there have been story’s about him in publications around the globe but I am starting to think that like Big Foot or the Loch Ness monster he is in fact just a figment of our collective imaginations.
Maybe a memorial service is due, should we stand down our portifilters, stop our roasters and drop cupping spoons to observe a 20 to 30 second silence in remembrance of our lost hero?
Please send photos if you have any, letters, hair clippings, foot prints, odors, any evidence at all that Stephen Morrissey is in fact alive and I will send to you, where ever you are a pound of Black Cat and a Intelli t shirt, if I believe it to be true.
May a greater power then all, help us.
