BMag Back Atcha – Weekly Blog in Review (May 13 – 19)

BMag-Back-Atcha

We’ve wrapped up another week of blogging, and guess what? If you missed anything, you’ve come to the right place to catch up.

Most of our coverage this week has been devoted to the build up toward the World Barista Championship in Melbourne, Australia, which we finally get to this week! You can find all of our coverage of the 2013 WBC here. And you can follow along with our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for up-to-the-minute coverage from Down Under.

In other news, we had another round of Humpday Giveaway, with a lucky winner snagging a Hario V60 dripper gift pack from Prima Coffee as a prize for knowing a little WBC trivia.

We also had a post on an upcoming Latte Art Smackdown before the WBC in Melbourne, a report on a new café in Redding, California, a story on Café Imports new education and training center in Minneapolis, Minn., and an infographic on coffee consumption in Australia. Oh, and there was a story on the start of the TNT series in SoCal! Sheesh, that’s a lot, and we haven’t even got to the WBC competitor profiles!

Speaking of those, here are the national champions we had interviews with this week.
