Most pleased (and so relieved) that the UK Barista Comp is over. Even better is that I’ve won!
I will post a full report soon, once I have collected all the pictures and stuff. My score (for those really into these things was 822.5, and second place was around 670. So I am pretty pleased. Looking through my scoresheets I still have a lot of work to do, but first I will be catching up on some sleep.
So many people to thank (Stephen and Flori at Mercanta, Steve at HasBean, Chris at the Fat Duck, Steve (my boss) at La Spaziale and many more.
Was cool to meet Troels, he seemed to like what I did over all and picking up just one 6 on a score sheet from a world champ is good enough for me!
