Burundi and Barista Champ

Happy rainy Monday.

This weekend, I was proud to be in attendance as a new World Barista Champion was crowned at this year’s Specialty Coffee Association of America’s annual Symposium and Exposition in Atlanta.  Gwilym Davies of the UK came out on top among a field of 52 national champions including finalists from Canada, USA, Ireland, Hungary and Korea.  Amazing weekend for coffee and I’m excited for this newly crowned ambassador for specialty coffee.  Hear NPR tell the story here.

Also, we added a new coffee to our menu late last week:  Bwayi Lot 8, Burundi.  Read Counter Culture’s coffee bio on their website.  This is a delicious coffee and we are pleased to be able to offer it.

  1. ryan–I just noticed the new coffee you have; last week at Stumbeano’s I bought Brundi Bwayi, Lot 1–cool coincidence.
