What would a barista competition be, if baristas didn’t expound in words on the character and craft of their coffee? It would be a competition that would not incite one to capture its words, write them down and remember them for another time. On the contrary, during the Big Eastern baristas did expound on coffee and there words were captured. Below, are some memorable quotes from day two and three.
“Since I work around prepared foods, sometimes coffee is an afterthought, but it ought to be inclusive,” Everette of @GatherNY
