Barista Battle

But where are the hot female, yet chain-smoking and unobtainable baristas? I call shenanigans.

Edit: See, now that's what I'm talking about. [Wink]

What do I have to do to be a judge there?

Man, it's been too long since I've been to Seattle....oh...the coffee...

It turns out I still have some utterly sublime coffee from over there in the fridge, and I made a cup the other day - wow!

/me goes off to consume the closest approximation to it...*sigh*

Holy shit, that stuff's still good?? I thought fresh ground coffee went off after a week or so.

Ah yes, us Washingtonians and our obsessive caffeine habits.

I can't go on existing if I didn't have my quad shot white chocolate espresso shake with no whip on a daily basis.

I WILL have a personal Starbucks in my apartment someday. [Big Grin]

I have to laugh at the pompousness of a Barista competition. I've been drinking Espresso for over thirty years and, when it comes down to it, you just want a perfect tasting tiny cup of black coffee with just the right amount of frothiness on top. Maybe a twist of lemon peel or a shot of Sambuca. All these latte concoctions are style without substance.

Sorry to disagree quantumfluff, but a Latte is not a bad thing. I love espresso, the smaller and stronger, the better. But from time to time, a Caramel Machiatto, a Cafe Latte or soemthing of that kind is a really nice thing to have
