John and I had a lot of fun at the Mountain Regional Barista Competition in Loveland, CO! We were happy we made it into the finals, but were also a bit dissappointed to learn how drastically our espresso changed within a couple of days, and that we didn't win. But Greg was awesome!
The USBC is going to be held in Anaheim this year, and I really want to go! John didn't think we would be able to afford it, though. I'm actually pretty optimistic. We can always find ways to raise money to go!
Anyhow, I learned a lot during this trip and experience. I am very proud of John and myself for getting into the finals. I am especially honored to hear Gianni say that John's espresso was the best he'd had. You rock, John!
Thank you for your love and support. We will do even better next time.
