It’s been a wild week in coffee, let me tell you! Maybe it feels that way in part because Portland, Ore.—where Barista Magazine’s HQ are based—is undergoing snopocalypse 2014. But so is a lot of the rest of the country. It was also a bananas week with publisher Ken Olson in Colombia through Friday, so there was a lot going on! Miss any of the action we covered here on our daily blog last week? Well, we gotcha covered. Here are quick links to all the articles we published right here in the past 7 days.
