a "pre-release" copy of the first issue of Barista Magazine just arrived at Stumptown.
i'm really excited about this. roasters finally got their own magazine last year and now baristas get theirs. once we get a coffee consumer magazine we're going to be fully covered.
i think this is a really really good thing and a really big deal.
the issue includes a great profile of Bronwen Serna and a really cool article on the Copenhagen Coffee Academy. it's also got the first official notice with photo of the new La Marzocco GB/5.
