BMag-Back-Atcha

Another week wraps up today, and in case you missed any of the action on the BMag Blog this week, well, this post is for you!

Monday we had a story about lessons from the Oregon wine industry from a roasters’ forum held by Congressman Earl Blumenauer.

And on Wednesday as always we had another edition of Humpday Giveaway, with this week’s prize a Toddy brewer. Lucky reader Chad Bledsoe will be enjoying his new cold brewer donated by Toddy all summer (and year) long.

Then our heavy coverage of the WBC started ramping up. Melbourne and the 2013 World Barista Championship is just around the corner.

We had a post about Espresso Parts rad commemorative porcelain cup set for the WBC.

And we started our WBC Countdown series of interviews with each of the 53 national champions who will be competing in this year’s Word Barista Championship. You can find all of the interviews, and all of our coverage from the event, under the WBC Melbourne 2013 tab in the menu bar of the blog.
