OFF TO BOGOTÁ
TO SHOOT THE BEST BARISTAS

I'm taking a "blog break",
traveling to Bogotá, Colombia, to cover the
WORLD BARISTA CHAMPIONSHIP.

What's a barista, you ask?
(If you love coffee, chances are you know the answer.)

A barista makes your coffee drink,
be it an espresso, a cappuccino, a latté or something special.
But most importantly,
a barista makes your coffee perfectly, with great care.

There are competitions world wide to judge the best baristas . . .
in cities, then regions, and finally in each country.
Each country sends their best barista then to the
World Barista Championship!

. . . which is about to be held in Bogotá,
in a world class coffee country -- Colombia.

Where ever you live, whatever the country,
your very best barista will be traveling to Bogotá this week
to compete for this prestigious honor.
And I'll be covering this event which determines
the World Champion Barista.

No laptop, no daily blog, no daily photos.
But lots when I return (June 4).

Ciao.
