A huge congrats to all who were involved in this past weekends Western Regional Barista Competition. I have already heard from many people in attendance that it was one of the best barista events to date!

A big round of applause for all of the competitors, and for the top three:

1st Place, Chris Baca, Ritual Coffee Roasters
2nd Place, Kyle Glanville, Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters
3rd Place, Heather Perry, Coffee Klatch Roasters

Remember to check out the Pacific Bay Coffee website for detailed coverage.

We now have one more regional competition in Ithaca, NY ... the NERBC coming up, hosted by Gimme! Coffee. Good luck to all and see you all in MN at the USBC.

Man-O-Man. Congrats to Chris! You are the man!

I actually heard the point spread amongst winners was surprisingly large. However it is just an unconfirmed rumor.

Totally didn't see this coming, Heather, Kyle and, Baca placing in the top three. Congrats to all. Does anybody know the point spread? I'm guessing it was neck-and-neck.
