Now, instead of the “southwest” being defined as Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico it expands to include Hawaii, California, Utah, and Colorado!
This is great news, but also means those who choose to compete will have intense competition! If you’re interested, the announcement PDF is available here.
Oh, and the 2010 World Barista Champion is Michael Phillips.

Mitch from Press Coffee gives us a personal demonstration of their new Trifecta Brewing system, which is a brand new machine. Press Coffee has the first one in the state that is in a coffee shop. So watch the video!
The sales rep for Bunn was on hand at the time, and I asked him what they sell for. He indicated that a coffee roaster could get one for $2,499 but the street price is double that (I seriously don’t get that… why not just have one price?).
It’s a very simple machine, with a sturdy aluminum construction weighing 49 lbs. Visually, it isn’t the most amazing looking machine, but it reminds me of the Super Soaker… simple design without a lot of flashy parts. In that manner, it is very much different than the Clover.
If you visit Press Coffee, you should ask for a cup. It’s really nice and is making some very good coffee. I tried two of their coffees: a Sudamo and a Peruvian and both were excellent. Very smooth. And unlike a french press there is no “grounds” at the bottom of the cup.

Press Coffee has a new toy — a Trifecta Coffee Brewer.
I’m going to get a video of it in operation very soon.
