Cupping Coffee with Stephen Vick

Last month I get a tweet from Stephen Vick saying, "hey, I'm in town. Have some coffee to cup. Interested?" To which, of course, I replied... "YES!" It was a good chance to learn from someone who's been in the industry for a decade, to hang out with a friend, and to taste some bomb coffee. Intelligentsia, Ecco, Blue Bottle, and Four Barrel represented on the table, including an coffee from Ethiopia Stephen helped source. Incredible coffee and enlightening conversation - what could be better?

Best of luck in your transitions these coming weeks, Stephen. I appreciate your willingness to pass on your knowledge and your friendship.

Baristas as Models

Christmas was a good excuse to be goobers and strike a couple poses. I thought I'd share a few of those poses.
