mixtape:. Big Eastern Barista Championship [Day 2+3]

Day 2 and 3, of the U.S. Coffee Championships for the Big Eastern region occurred at the Cotton Room, in Durham, North Carolina on January 18th and 19th  2013, as part of The Specialty Coffee Association presented events.

Another 27 competitors competed playing more than 80 songs which smdlr captured included the first ever inclusion into a mixtape – the voice and perspective of a grower via Camila Ramos of Panther Coffee’s routine. Historic! Historic and akin to the sonic vibrations of Beyonce’s recently released album ‘Beyonce’ where on the track “***Flawless”  she inserts the voice of author Chimamanda Nogzi Adichie speaking about feminism at a TedxEuston.

The etchings of cultural conscious are occurring with and in coffee and smdlr sees no harmful wounds.

And, now for your audio pleasure, press play.
