Worldwide Coffee Competition Coverage

SprudgeLive, launched by Sprudge Coffee News and Culture, aims to provide coffee lovers around the world with the most recent coffee competition coverage, in a highly visual layout! If you, like me, have been interested in entering the world of coffee competition as either a viewer or maybe future participant, but found it difficult to keep up with and find news about competitions as they are occurring, that shouldn't be problem anymore. SprudgeLive began the same day as their coverage of the 2015 United States Barista Championship, and they will be covering the entirety of the United States regional and national barista competitions, the World Barista Championship, and multiple competitions from the World Coffee Events portfolio, including World Latte Art, World Coffee In Good Spirits, and the World Cup Tasters Championship. Sound too good to be true? Well, it's not. They aim to include photos of every competition, routine recaps, links, and Tweets that act as a sort of play-by-play, which you can follow by following their account at @SprudgeLive on Twitter. While the website is still in beta mode, there have already been some exciting updates that bring the joy of coffee competitions to those who aren't able to be there themselves: check it out!

@onesmile It totally depends on the competition!! Some test unique drinks, some test basic roasting or a specific making technique. It just depends on the competition!
@hikaymm That's awesome! Looking forward to see what coverage you can share with us in this collection :) Following!
Forgive my question, but what exactly is tested at a coffee competition? @hikaymm
@ryantadman I'm pretty new to it all as well; hopefully we can learn a lot! @caricakes If only!!! @nokcha I think we would all qualify for that one :)
World Cup Tasters Championship? I'm great at tasting coffee!

The Beautiful Benefits Of Using Coffee For Your Hair And Skin
Not only are you in for a surprise, but your skin is too. If you thought coffee was only good for keeping you up during that meeting at work or while you study for a big exam -- think again. Coffee has more benefits than most people are aware of and I'm here to bare good news. Thanks to the amazing qualities of coffee, both your skin and hair can get a morning boost too -- leaving them booth rejuvenated and healthy. Doing it yourself is always the better option, leave those expensive bottles on the shelf and get down and dirty in your kitchen while creating your own delicious combination. Exfoliating Your Skin Coffee grounds are the perfect consistency for the perfect body exfoliator. Why purchase one at the store when you can easily make your own at home. Grab some natural products and get to mixing. This scrub will help unclog pores and brighten skin. It is gentle and natural enough to be used on your face as well -- your skin will appreciate you. Repair Dry, Cracked Feet Mix together coffee grounds and coconut oil with a splash of vanilla for a yummy scent to repair and soften dry, cracked feet. Allow your feet to soak in soapy water and apply mixture for ten minutes massaging into damaged skin before rinsing with warm water. Your feet will feel and look good as new. Brighten Brown Locks Who needs hair dye when you have coffee? If you find your hair color fading, but don't want to spend money on hair dye -- mix together coffee grounds and water to create a past. Apply the paste to freshly shampooed hair and allow to sit before rinsing off. Your color will be alive and kicking. Get Rid Of Puffy Eyes Tell those bags under your eyes to get lost. Letting coffee grounds sit under your eyes and on your eyelids while you soak in the bath or take a shower will reduce puffiness and give your eyes some life. Give this method about 30 minutes to an hour before seeing results. Folger's wasn't lying. It is the best part of waking up. If you're looking for an amazing product that won't break your pockets, but will leave you vibrant and healthy looking -- choose coffee. Always.
