it’s not just that billy’s scintillating signature beverage from last year’s u.s. barista championships got ripped off by a euro poo-producer. it’s that coca-cola now impudently robs him of this year’s concoction before he can even compete! “effervescence” indeed.

isn’t it enough that everyone’s favorite production-barista underdog gets called “heavily tattooed” every time he appears in gushing, high-profile enterprise pieces on the cultural relevance of rock-star baristi? now this! why, it’s enough to make a guy take his blog private.
