I got sucked into this rabbit hole of the World Barista Championship. If you’ve got about 90 minutes, I’d say give it a go.

The skill of the baristas is off the charts, and the way they talk about their beverages is the envy of any cicerone. It would be a real treat to have beer served like this-but alas that just isn’t the way beer works.

I’m not complaining about that, per se. Just acknowledging that part of what makes the World Barista Championship work is the time it takes to make, prepare, and pour a drink. There are spaces in between all of those things where we are allowed to be informed and take in what is being offered.

Which is pretty cool.
