In the tradition of the Onion’s Sunday Magazine, welcome to Sprudge Sunday Magazine – “Specialty Coffee’s Cover Page.”
For the thirteenth issue of Sprudge Sunday Magazine, we’re honoring Square Mile Coffee Roasters‘ John Gordon, your 2013 UK Barista Champion.
This is John Gordon’s astounding third UKBC win. He advances on to represent the United Kingdom at the 2013 World Barista Championship in Melbourne, happening in just 3 short weeks (May 22nd-26th).
Sprudge.com had boots on the ground at the 2013 UKBC, in the form of our new London correspondent Elyse Bouvier. Her full accounting of Semi-Finals Saturday is available here – check back on Sprudge soon for much more in photos and essays from this astounding event.
