Last month I took 2nd place at the America's Best Cold Brew Competition at Coffee Fest Chicago, held at Navy Pier. While I am proud of my result, there was a bit of controversy surrounding the final outcome. Due to an unexplained rule change, I ended losing to my opponent even though I received 76% of the popular vote.
While I might sound critical of the event, it is purely constructive criticism. I want to thank the organizers of the competition and everyone who came out and tried my coffee. The organizers are wonderful people and were highly transparent about how they operate. The situation was just unfortunate.
