We did a quick trip to Los Angeles where Carissa judged at the Big Western Barista Competition. It was pretty much down and back, but we did manage to squeeze in a little fun and another dozen or so coffee shops. I’ll be writing about the coffee stuff in the coming weeks, but meanwhile here are a few pics from our adventure!
Carissa flew down early so it was just me and the girls on the drive down. The weather was perfect so we found this park to have a picnic and run around a bit.

Carissa headed in for a day of judging (Xandra is there for moral support)
This is an ALMOND MILK machiatto from Timeless Coffee in Oakland. In case you’re unfamiliar with the characteristics of that milk alternative, this level of art on this drink with that milk is impossible. I have a picture of it and I STILL don’t believe it.
Back in Portland!
