I am bummed to be here on the left coast, not in attendance of the NERBC, but and trying to follow along with this weekends events. Yesterday was the semi-finals, 26 competitors I believe.
Last night was the official bX meet up and dance party in Ithaca, and I am waiting to hear how everything went, hopefully some photos too.
The finalists are:
Chris Ganger (Ithaca Coffee Co)
Lance Nichols (Gimme! Coffee)
Jay Murdock (Cafe Grumpy)
Chris Deferio (Carriage House Cafe)
Katie Carguilo (Counter Culture Coffee)
Amber Sather (Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea)
Check out Liz Clayton's blog
for more up to minute details from the event.
Good luck to everyone competing today and I'll post more later.
