Mike Phillips from Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea won his second consecutive U.S. Barista Championship yesterday in Anaheim. He’ll go on to compete at the World Barista Championship on June 23rd in London. This continues a caffeine-fueled streak of coffee domination by the Chicago based company. Two other Intelligentsia baristas placed in the top five, including Charles Babinksi in fifth and Devin Pedde, from the L.A. outpost, in third. [HuffPost]
