big-westernPerry Czopp shared this video with me over the weekend. This video, produced by Shaunte Glover and Perry Czopp, is about the Big Western competition event presented by the SCAA and the Barista Guild of America. The event was held in Rancho Mirage, CA in August, 2014.

The Big Western event features coffee professionals from practically the whole western United States and comprises California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, Hawaii, and Wyoming.
