I just returned from the Great Lakes Regional Barista Competition.
Here are the finialists, three from Inteligentsia Coffee and Tea, one from Coffee Hound, and one from Metropolis Coffee. The winner was Matt Riddle of Intelligentsia, Matt also won last year. Matt is an Indianapolis boy, he went to Pike High School, and IU. Matt is also the current United States Barista Champion.

I was privilaged to judge the first round of this competition. I enjoy juding competitions more than compeating.

I hope to have an Indianapolis barista compeating next year, perhaps even from Bjava!

Back to your coffee!

Yes, we are open today. Apparently, the snow removal folks didn't think we would be!
So if you hit the streets, come on over and warm up at Bjava! Fresh Hot coffee, great hot chocolate and yummy beef vegetable soup.

So, I am sorry to say that we are closed today. I will make it in tomorrow, but I didn't think any of you would venture out today. I thought it best that we didn't slide into the store just on the off chance someone was willing to come out for coffee. I am sure my competitor is open, since they are more about the buck in their name than the stars they should care about.

Stay home enjoy some hot chocolate or tea, and if you have run out of coffee I will be there for you tomorrow!
