2012 SWRBC Recap

We couldn’t have asked for a better event.  Thanks to everyone who came out and made this year’s SWRBC what it was.  A huge congratulations to Jared, who won the Barista Competition, and to Lizzy who took 3rd place!  We also want to mention some of our wholesale partners who made a huge impact in the Brewer’s Cup, by taking 3 of the 6 finalist spots.  Great work Bellano, Single Origin, and Fix Coffee Co!

Overall, we can’t say enough.  We had such a great time, and would love to do this again!
