BMag Back Atcha! Our Pasteboard Week In Review

DSC_5081.2-300x2011

We sure love publishing a print magazine every other month for you to languish over and keep in your coffee educational library. We’ve been doing it for eight years, after all, and we can’t imagine doing anything else—there’s so much going on in coffee all the time!

And that’s why in addition to printing an award-winning magazine, we also love blogging! Barista Magazine’s blog, Pasteboard, was established way back in 2007, mainly as a way to report breaking news on the United States Barista Championship as well as the World Barista Championship. But there’s just so much happening in coffee all the time, that Pasteboard has grown much, much bigger!

In fact, we’re publishing so much on our blog that we decided to introduce BMag Back Atcha! where you can catch up on all the news we published in the last week in case you missed something. We hope you like it!

Our crazy amazing SCAA and U.S. Barista Championship coverage! Wow, we sure blogged a lot in Boston—my fingers are tired! Here’s a list of all the articles we published here on Pasteboard, with a link directly to the story:
