UKBC 2014 SET LIST : ‘Small’ Just Got Larger

Enter a great white lab coat, and the man who dramatically donned it. Accented by a love of coffee, science and the mighty component of any beverage – water – Maxwell Colonna Dashwood, proprietor of coffee shop in Bath after his own name sake, won the title with who he already is every day in the space, online in his blog and through his appearances.

In an impressive showing, he won among four of the worlds best from last year, who were also listed in the top six this year, along with the ‘Coffee Mistress Estelle’ as well as newcomer to the finals race, Dale Harris.

As usual Maxwell gave his routine a sonic journey that rode, rose and hit a crescendo in the way that only he bops and it was dramatically beautifully.  Congrats to him his company.

Now, a resounding quote paired with their set lists as smdlr was able to hear and document it.
