Someday, someone might ask you when the very fi rst Pacifi c Barista Series Chug Contest took place, and you can confi dently say The Barista League Philadelphia. This spontaneous contest proved one of the highlights of an already spectacular night. Team Two Peas in a Portafi lter—a.k.a. Jacob Dempsey and Alejandrina Acereto—focused on the sensory round of competition in Portland, wherein teams had to identify fl avors from the SCA cupping fl avor wheel in food- coloring-altered cups. The big winners in Greenville were Team A Skulk of Paper Foxes, who had perhaps the most memorable and emotional acceptance speech of any city on the Barista League U.S.A. Tour. Judges in Philadelphia, from left: Ricardo Pereira, D'Onna Stubblefi eld, and Adam JacksonBey. PHOTO BY SARAH ALLEN PHOTO BY PAIGE HICKS 30 barista magazine
