What an amazing weekend! I just got back last night from the Coffee Fest
Seattle, where it was so great to meet up with friends and to meet so many of my "friends" here on bX in person. :)
I will be uploading more pictures in the next day or so but I wanted to take a moment to express how happy I am for my friend, and past American Barista & Coffee School
gradute, Hiroshi Sawada of Caffe Milkart
, Tokyo, Japan, who won first place in the Millrock Latte Art Competition. Hiroshi has been competing in at every Coffee Fest for the past few years and finally came thru with the winning pour. He is the sweetest guy ever and is a great ambassador for the coffee industry.
After winning, Hiroshi donated his $5000 prize directly to Coffee Kids
. His generosity, dedication and love for the industry is something we can all learn from.
