Our head trainer, Laura Lumsden, is in Dublin this week for the year's biggest coffee confab, including the World Barista Championships and Re;Co, a symposium of coffee research and collaboration.
Thus far, she seems to have tasted syrupy American blueberries from a tin (for sensory science!), swilled instant coffee that doesn't suck (for research!) and absorbed a little botany to boot (for posterity!).
She's also repping Pro Baristas, as we move toward more collaborations that join up speciality training with social investment. Thanks to Re;Co for sponsoring Laura's attendance.
Meanwhile, follow along as she swerves amongst the stalls here.
