Northeast Regional Barista Competition Finalists

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.

The party was amazing on Friday night. Free pizza and beer - all thanks to barista exchange and the american barista and coffee school. It couldn't have gone better. And even though I was exhausted after the long day of 27 competitors, I ignored my exhaustion and danced my ass off. Great party. I'll try to get some photos together!

Congratulations and thanks to all the great competitors who attended the NERBC! It was nice to meet everyone and it was a pleasure to host all of you in Ithaca. I have one item in our lost and found: 1 rubber foot for a Robur grinder. If you lost yours, please send me a message and i will get it back to you.
