Coffee Craze Gone Wild

2008_03_bblab.jpgAll you need to know about how far this gourmet coffee trend is going, and will continue to go: "Today Japanese siphon champion Fumiho Ohto will show off her winning technique at Blue Bottle's siphon bar from 3 to 5 p.m ... Japan's siphon competitions are all about evaluating how well the coffee expresses the taste of the beans. Competitors are judged on five pots of coffee. Ohto will work the bar and give pointers to the Blue Bottle baristas, so arrive early." Siphon champion? Early arrival necessary to watch someone teach someone else how to make coffee? The mind boggles. [Scoop, last item]
