The next phase of the United States competition season is upon us! This weekend, the SCAA, the BGA, and sponsors like Prima present the Big Eastern Event. Watch with us – on the web or in the flesh – as Brewers Cup competitors bring their best, hoping for a spot on that national stage.
Welcome, watchers near and far, to the 2nd installment of our LIVE Big Eastern Brewers Cup coverage! You're looking at the internet's only on-the-fly, off-the-cuff, all-inclusive report of everyone's favorite filter coffee comp. Come see what happens on day 2!
Eleven days and a thousand miles separate me from my last morning in Boston. Swag sorted, coffee stashed, and sleep recovered, I'm back to normal life in Louisville. Back to writing at a desk, breathing warm, Kentucky air and sleeping in my own bed. Back to wishing I was in Boston.
The end of the Big Eastern Brewers Cup is just about here! We've seen dozens of top notch services this weekend — and tasted most of their fabulous coffees — but now it's time to watch the last of them and learn which of the final 12 competitors our judges scored highest.
Pack your bags and fasten your seatbelts — we're going to Boston! SCAA is back in Beantown for the 25th annual expo and you're invited. Join us!
So, it has been an embarrassingly long time since we have blogged. Perhaps one could blame it on the holidays, or the New Year, or all the time spent trying to stick to those resolutions that we are about to break soon anyway, but in the end there is really no excuse. I'm not even sure what to write about, to tell the truth. We have some ideas for educational and helpful blogs in the future, but alas this is not one of those. So I will just take the time to speak of the good things in coffee that I have experienced over the last several hours.
Several days have passed, yet the satisfaction of such a great bash still lingers! I believe it was a great event for the Louisville coffee community. Friday evening felt more like we were hanging and geeking out in someone's home than in a shop setting. We want to give big thanks to Anchorage Cafe for being such accommodating hosts. You guys were awesome and were so open to our requests and crazy ideas!
