Special Thanks to @robertelysian for his sharing of Michael Ratcliffe's Aeropress Recipe " Sometimes genius and madness are nearly indistinguishable - it can depend on whether you’re smiling or frowning when you see it. Here was our dear friend Michael Ratcliffe’s competition plan for the World Aeropress Championship in Seattle April 2015 - I chose to smile when I saw it. Sadly we lost Michael in the early days of May 2019 and I know many are struggling to conceive of a world without him. There will be a memorial/remembrance and gathering at the Rocanini Coffee Roastery Sunday June 9th, 2019 from noon to 2:00pm. (127 West 5th Ave Vancouver). Come by and share your memories, and your collective love for Michael & each other, and hopefully share the burden of moving forward knowing others are there to help share in your grief. More information can be found at @meemo_the_cat and @cbaristaca Michael touched many lives and I’ll never forget him. "
