I did mention that all the finalists were from western Canada; in the Day one report, I posted links to every one of their cafes / roasteries.
I think it's also fair to note: only two people from Vancouver competed - the other cafes in town didn't want to send their baristas out to the competition for whatever reason. Both Vancouver people made the finals.

Mark - Had a good time, but this wasn't a consumer show. Some consumers just can't get into barisata competitions. After reading my blog post about my impressions ... do you any tips?
John - I guess Toronto Elites are confined to politics so far ;) One of these years somebody will make a breakthrough. Toronto market is progressing fast which I am glad for. A little rivalry will help everyone go further.
