So competing this weekend was good. I definately didn't even come close to placing, but word on the street is I looked so calm, cool, and collected (couldn't be further from the truch), that I had everyone pretty scared. I guess it was good for me to get out there. I was able to observe other baristas much more talented than myself. Hopefully next year proves to be alot more worthwhile. :)
I had a blast with the group we took up. It was their first year at a competition, or coffee convention. Thankfully most of the groupies are baristas, so we were able to geek out together without worry of anyone scoffing.
All to say it was a very good weekend.
