Presented pretty much without comment (because day 2 is in full swing and I don’t have time to do much else but copy and paste photo urls!) here are some pics and backstage, post-performance portraits of all the baristas who took part in day one of the World Barista Championships 2014. Enjoy!

After a 9-day journey, starting out in Oslo and then ending with a whirlwind tour through Florence and Venice, I think it’s safe to say I’m pretty beat. Early mornings, late nights, many airports, long train rides, and a slowly creeping cold have all taken their toll; but nothing could bring me down too much after the amazing things I’ve seen and experienced this trip. I’m still trying to slog through the jetlag and thousands of photos I’ve taken, propping up my tired eyelids with endless cups of coffee from Norway, trying to process it and let it all sink in. It will be a few days yet before I am all caught up with everything and can properly devote time to writing about my experiences and share bunches of photos with you. I do want to share just a few, though, as a sort of a preview, and as a way for myself to take a small break from the “work” side of things for my own sanity. View Post
