This entry was posted on January 13, 2009.
If you aren't in the NW area or couldn't make it to the regional barista finals this past weekend, you might be interested in reading about the winner -- Alex Pond of Fresh Pot in Portland OR.
The 22-year-old wunderkind concocted a signature drink using Tanzanian salt and Balinese chocolate that sounds quite delish. He'll go on to compete in the US finals this coming March in Portland -- where all of the regional winners will be pit against each other to determine which java slinger will represent the US in the world championships later this year.
