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, some memorable quotes from day one.
