[note to self replace this Grind pic with a pic of Lem as soon as I can find one]

One of my favorite baristas at my favorite coffee shop just won The third annual Southeast Regional Barista Competition here. Lem aka DJ Pez aka Lemuel Butler will go on to the U.S. Barista Championship in Charlotte this coming April. [Daily Tar Heel report here]

I am writing this from the justly proud Daily Grind.
