Sprudge Pal Matt Miletto reports that “the feel good moment at CoffeeFest Seattle” is that photo you see above, in which Vivace honcho David Schomer embraced Christopher Nicely Abel Alameda after placing first at the Millrock Latte Art competition this weekend. Mr. Nicely got his start at Vivace, where he worked closely with the late Brian Fairbrother. He’ll be using a portion of his $2500 grand prize to buy a ticket back to Seattle to attend Brian’s memorial next Saturday.

Congratulations to Christopher Nicely!
