In the build up to this prestigious event, would be good to have a bio on each finalist - coffee journey, defining experiences (when you realised there was more to coffee than Lavazza) etc and more general irreverence.

I was just meaning the 6oz cups are almost identical to the espresso ones in shape but are much bigger.

I think its a closely guarded society , with special rituals involving exotic and magical beans from all over the globe.

 

i recall it is something about 'Extraction' Where only a special wand made to the highest degree of perfection will result in being able to achieve a special elixar , which some call Kofee.

Boots couldn't understand why his new vegetarian friend was so upset with his cherry tomato kebab - after all the effort he'd put in studying his Ladybird Guide to Veggies in preparation.
