Congrats to Alex McCracken and Mike Marquard of Kaldi's. They were two of the five finalists at the Specialty Coffee Association of America Midwest Regional Barista Competition, which took place this past weekend at the Third Degree Glass Factory. What's more, McCracken finished in second place.

The winner was Pete Licata of PT's Coffee in Topeka, Kansas. Each of the five finalists has qualified for the national barista competition to be held this May.

(That's Licata in the center of the picture. McKracken is on the right. On the left is third-place winner Robin Seitz, also of PT's Coffee.)

You can read about the competition at Kaldi's blog. Bill has a gallery of photos from the events at STL Bites.
