Sometimes I just have to laugh at my job and think about how I got so lucky! Today was one of those days…
I love coffee. When I got asked to photograph the SCAA Specialty Coffee of the Year Event, I thought, “sure, this will be fun”. I had no idea what is was in store for.
I went to class after class learning (over the shoulder of people I was photographing) about cupping, pouring and how to make latte art! I even got to watch the latte art competition. I got to see the most amazing top of the line cappuccino makers and other tools of the trade that pretty much blew my mind.
I hung out with Martin Detrich and his bro (although I see them all the time at our local coffee shop, Kean). And most fun of all, I got to try the special civet coffee, pooped out of the buns of a civet cat. Itʼs the most expensive coffee in the world!
I pretty much drank coffee all day and ran around like crazy – I was on like 18 shots of espresso. So all in all, best day ever!
