Time for another photo essay! This time around, we'll have a look at some of the range of characters and personalities from the SCAA Show in Atlanta.

You'll find many of these photos are centric to the Barista competition, and that's because that's where I hung out most of the time, but we also have some photos from the floor, from the keynote speeches, and even some alties pop up here and there. Enjoy!
