From the kelly green hills of Ireland, home to some of the best baristas in the world, there emerges an Emerald Champion with dreams of competing on the world stage: Congratulations to Vicky Fitzhenry of Butlers Chocolates for winning the 2011 Irish Barista Championships! Best of luck in Bogota, Vicky, and we mean that in a sincere way, not in a “luck ‘o the Irish joke” kind of way. Huzzah!
