Our friend Ben Blake put together a really nice video for the SCAA video contest:

Voting is now live for the Specialty Coffee Association of America's “Attendee Video Contest.” The contest is centered around the phrase: “Specialty coffee is…”

SCAA challenged anyone who loves coffee to create a video that finishes that sentence, and to do it in their own unique way. The winner gets $500 and gets their video played at the SCAA opening ceremonies in Portland, Oregon at the end of April. It's a really cool opportunity for me to be involved, especially as I begin to explore diving into the coffee industry. It's nice to be able to feel connected to it through things like the SCAA.

Not sure about the Bon Iver knockoff soundtrack, but otherwise this video is stunning! Have a look, and pass along a vote to Ben if you like what you see.
