There’s a curatorial care to a barista’s coffee choice in a barista competition. It arrives in the frame of tasting a coffee with a story you can speak to, finding a starting point within that takes you on a journey back to where it all began for the bean, then bringing it full circle to a point of delivery, a steward, an ambassador, a spokesman in the truest sense. The coffee speaks, of course but its the language of the barista in voice and sound – in curated music that makes that full circle hole.
These song selections were played in unison to thematic routines, statements of intentions and to underscore the philosophies baristas proposed during their routines during day to on February 12, 2017. See day one here.
For now and for day two, press play.
