This past weekend I attended the Coffee and Tea Festival NYC. If you're a coffee and tea lover you may want to attend next year.
The event was an educational and inexpensive way to pass my Saturday afternoon. Â People travelled from all over the country to network with a crowd of merchants, coffee aficionados and industry experts. Â The free samples alone made it worth the entry fee! My favorite bits were the Ultimate Barista Challenge and lectures on coffee roasting and afternoon tea etiquette.
I gained greater respect for my field and my peers. Today, I know even more than I did last week about coffee and tea!
Below I've put together a little video highlighting the Ultimate Barista Challenge. It's my first time using a Flip Camera so pardon the shakiness!
Until next week, breathe well and be well!
