Shaughnessy! Milstead! Out of region out of country! Some nice representation here,

May the best barista win!

I echo the gasps of Lucey. Shockingly small for the US coffee capital. Sad to see no Elvin in there this year for sure...

Thanks everyone!

It was a great weekend and I couldn't have done it without my lovely ladies (Caroline & Lola) helping me along!

Sara Z., you're my new #1, but you'll have to let Kim know.

Charlotte, and Sam: Portland FTW!

Lucey,

Ian rocked it, and you should be proud of your early training efforts, as they have finally paid off!
