World Barista Championship

Think the word "passion" is a hollow coffee marketing hyperbole? Check out The World Barista Championship site to understand what folks do to become the World Barista Champion. If that doesn't require passion, nothing does!

If you want to know more about Matt Riddle, the new U.S. Barista Champion, check out Matt's bio at Intelligentsia Coffee.

We're impressed, Matt! Keep it up.

O.k., so I never knew that making an espresso could be taken to such a level, but then why not? 4 drinks, music, prep & clean up - 45 minutes. Hmmm. I would LOOOOVE to be a judge! Do you know where the "national" (U.S.) competitions are? Very curious...
