Joel Bigelow and Leah Shinkle have spent the last several months training to compete in the Western Qualifier for the 2016 US Barista Championships.

Both Leah and Joel competed using coffee from Aida Battle’s Finca Kilimanjaro. In celebration, we are re-releasing our Kilimanjaro Estate Series Box in a Special Edition signed by producer Aida Battle. There are only 20 available.
