samuelsmith Earlier this evening ~ awaiting feedback in the debriefing room. Final ranking was 37th out of 48 in the Western conference. Lots to think about in preparation for next year. Need to focus more on synergy and accurate flavor descriptors. Extremely thankful to be amongst such legendary coffee professionals this week. #qualifyingevent #scaa #uscc 1w

samuelsmith February is shaping up to be a very full month. I've been glued to my computer all day looking at flights and accommodations, scheduling meetings, and modifying my script for the upcoming barista competition. It's funny how quickly your schedule can get maxed-out sometimes.

Concluding the day with my grandmother in Chapman Music Hall for Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, by the Tulsa Symphony.
