The excitement escalated today at the Big Western Regional Barista Championship as tons more coffee enthusiasts were able to make it out to join in on the fun.  It was great to connect with so many incredible people from the industry, and inspiring to watch all of the baristas' performances. Here are some photos highlighting a few of my favorite moments of the day:
