Mike—of Gimme! Coffee in New York, is the cover boy in the new issue of Barista Magazine, our October/November pub. I’m still catching up on stuff since getting back from a long trip in Colombia. But better late than never—I wanted to encourage you to check out the new issue, complete with an article on the down-n-dirty re the awesome Mike White, carried by some killer photos by Ms. Liz Clayton.

More in this issue:

• A conversation between James Hoffmann and Josh Dick of Urnex on cleaning products. Science nerds, this one’s for you.

• A compilation of quotes from some of the best roasters we know about why their interactions with baristas are critical to their success.

• Miss Heather Perry’s tale of training the barista champion of Honduras, Ana Lucia, for the WBC.
