Last month we travelled to Kansas City for the United States Barista Championships Qualifying Event. There is a mouth full! We have a few stories from the event. While Julia was busy at the tamper table Reg managed to get some pictures of the competition. We were so excited to see Trevor Corlett from Mad Cap Coffee come out on top. He has always been a big supporter of our small family business. Another shout out to our guy Lem Butler who was also a finalist and will be headed to Atlanta. I think Lem holds the top story of the event, Lem's wife is a physician's assistant and was bummed to be scheduled for open heart surgery during Lem's routine. But with twisted fate the surgeon performing the surgery just happened to be a big coffee fan and they watched Lem on the monitor in the O.R.! For serious guys...
