Welcome to BMag Back Atcha – Week of July 14-20, 2014
BMag Back Atcha is Barista Magazine’s weekly blog-in-review post where we put all the links from the past week so you can make sure you didn’t miss anything.
The week started with a post on Jesse Harriott’s new Kickstarter project called Copper Horse Coffee Roasters. He and his partners are looking to start a new roastery in upstate New York. You can read about it here:

Next up it was a preview story of the latest Thirty-Thirty Coffee Co. barista jam in Peoria, Illinois. The jam in on August 2, and you can read about what to expect at this fun, annual event right here:

That brought us to Wednesday and as it custom, it was time to play Humpday Giveaway, our weekly trivia contest where you can win some awesome prizes. This week’s prize came to us via Portland, Oregon’s Coava Coffee.

The hits (and events) just kept coming this week, with a preview of another event next month in Newberg, Oregon this time with the American Barista & Coffee School and local roaster Caravan Coffee hosting the festivities.

We looked up north (of BMag HQ anyway) for the next story (and event) this time as on Friday it was the 3rd Northwest Cup Tasters League (NWCTL) held at Tony’s Coffee in Seattle.

Finally on Saturday we had the fourth part of our series on cold brew from writer Jeremy Martin where he looks at some of the more interesting and creative approaches to the concoction.
