Rob brought home a shiny red tamper from Reg Barber and a 4th place in the Western Region Barista Championship. In his first competition Rob held his own and beat out many seasoned competitors for a place in the finals where he finished 29 points (on a scale of 800,) behind the first place competitor. His score is currently the fifth highest in the country with one region left to compete. On September 13th his name will be in the wild card draw for a 1 in 2 shot at a seat in the nationals. We would like to thank and congratulate Reg Barber of Reg Barber Tampers and Sam Jones from 2% Jazz for putting on a first class event. See you at the nationals.
