Stuff Tyler Loves PHOTO BY CHRIS MULLINS I love stuff Tom's of Maine brand deodorant Tyler Rovenstine Reigning South Central Brewers Cup Champion Barista at Oddly Correct Coffee Roasters Kansas City, Missouri Why do you love it? I love this deodorant because it's clinically proven to keep my pits non-smelly for 24 hours. Also, it's aluminum-free. I'm not sure why this is good, but hippies and my wife say it's better for me. How does it contribute to your skills as a barista? It gives me confidence! Why is it important? This deodorant is perfect for baristas working a coffee bar because it's unscented. Our customers come to our shop to have a sensory experience with our coffee, not with my armpits. So I don't have to worry about B.O. or about an artificial chemical scent distracting from that. Do other baristas you know use it? I know which baristas don't use it! [Laughs] And I know a few who do use this deodorant. RINSER REDUX The pitcher rinser from Espresso Parts you've come to know and love just got even better! With an improved all stainless-steel valve stem body for use with higher water pressure and increased reliability, these rinsers have spray holes that won't clog, and a new style rinser valve actuation star with ridges to prevent slipping. Rinse any vessel with a diameter of one to four-and-a-half inches in seconds. The new deluxe two-inch drain improves water volume capacity and now includes a drain filter/stopper. The countertop version includes a durable new dishwasher-safe ABS plastic surround with nonslip rubber feet, designed with a four-degree slope for efficient drainage. 49
