Friday April 1st. TeaChat to become CofTeaChat!

BYOT! Enter TeaChat here, you never know what you may find!

A few days ago the decision was made to convert TeaChat to CofTeaChat, a forum to discuss all things coffee and tea. And Adagio will become AdagioCoffeeRoasting.com. Isn't this exciting?

This is so freaking exciting!

Friday April 1st. TeaChat to become CofTeaChat!

Postby Chip » Apr 1st, '11, 01:06

Greetings TeaFans. Welcome to yet another TeaDay. We hope you will drop by and share what is in your cup throughout the day with us.

Yesterday we discussed, "What do you feel you take the most/best care of, your tea or your teaware?" Please continue to discuss yesterday's topic.

Today's TeaPoll and discussion topic. So it turns out, a few days ago the decision was made to convert TeaChat to CofTeaChat, a forum to discuss all things coffee and tea. And Adagio will become AdagioCoffeeRoasting.com. Isn't this exciting?

This will become effective sometime today, Friday April 1st, 2011.


We are all looking forward to sharing this, hmmm, Coffee and Tea Day with ... everyone. Bottoms up!

I'm not a big coffee drinker. If it actually happens I'll just be keeping out of the coffee threads. :lol:

I've been drinking okuyutaka sencha today for Chip. :mrgreen:

That is SO freaking exciting. Perhaps then AdagioCoffeeRoasting will have an easier time remembering to renew their domains... :lol:

Like Nenugal, I'm having a double espresso to celebrate this wonderful news. Never cared much for tea anyway.

Woohoo SO freakin exciting! Now Adagio can finally compete with Teavana... Teavana is secretly owned by Starbucks, as most of you probably already know. I think they are giving up the secrecy soon since their similar business practices and philosophy are so transparent. :lol: :lol: :lol:

What we really need is an official boiled gyokuro topic -- Chip, could you start one please?

I could go either way on excited or not. I can enjoy coffee but I think my true love is tea. I enjoyed that this place was focused on tea but I'm a go with the flow person. Is this why the domain name wasn't working a few days ago? :P

One part of me thinks this might be a good ol' April Fools joke....hmmm we shall see :D

Cheers!

Awesome. :lol:
Great name! So creative...Hopefully the coffee masters will come out of the woodwork.

In keeping with this spirit, I am having a blend of finely ground coffee and gyokuro, brewed in my ru kiln Gaiwan!

Nooooooo!

Actually, one of my other tea forums is already a 'Coffee & Tea' forum, but the coffee drinkers are pretty quiet once they get themselves settled in with their latest greatest expresso device. The tea posts outnumber the coffee posts by about as much as tea varieties outnumber coffee varieties....

Yamakai sencha this a.m. A good start to the TeaDay.

Not a coffee person really...unless it's 5% coffee, 5% sugar, and 90% milk. It also makes me so jittery!

Assam in my cup, but hopefully going to enjoy some Sakura sencha this weekend down in DC :)

Well, looks like I might be "OUT" since I have refused to drink and talk about coffee ... :cry: I will drown my sorrows in some Chinese green. :mrgreen:

In fact, began the TD with Chinese green from a TCer with the Mrs. Sure hope sencha arrives soon!
