Welcome to BMag Back Atcha – Week of August 4-10, 2014
It’s BMag Back Atcha – Week of August 4-10, 2014: our weekly roundup of all the posts from the Barista Magazine blog this week where you can find links to everything we covered in case you missed anything.
Then we had a story on a great new project by a group of folks from Austin, Texas known as the Department of Brewology. We spoke with David Salinas, who is creating the hand drawn and handmade prints celebrating, education and promoting different brew methods and techniques. They are awesome! Read about them here: Brewing Up Some Beautiful Prints
On Wednesday we played Humpday Giveaway, our weekly trivia contest for fun and prizes, and guess what this week’s prize was? Yep, a Department of Brewology print! Let’s Play Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway #73! (August 6, 2014 Edition)
And our winner announcement on Thursday is here: Barista Magazine’s Humpday Giveaway Winner #73! (August 6, 2014 Edition)
Then we had a story on Tyler Stevens, a former barista competitor from Billy Wilson’s famous BARISTA coffeehouse on Northeast Alberta in Portland, Ore. Now he’s moved on to bar tending in some of the city’s most famous bars, and is already making a name for himself in the United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) competition arena.

Friday we had a post on a new gadget (if that’s the right word) that has just appeared on the coffee scene. They’re called Coffee Joulies, and they are kind of an incredible engineering feat. They absorb excessive heat from coffee and cool it to make it easier to drink. You can read about their development and how they work here: Coffee Joulies: An Engineered Solution to Cooling Coffee
Then on Saturday, our regular contributor Jeremy Martin was back (he just completed a six-part series for us on cold brew coffee) with another entry in the cooler side of coffee ledger. This time he wrote about coffee ice cream, a perfect topic for a hot August day. You can read about it here: Beyond Simple Ice Cream
