  • Coffee Wars 9 Results! (and apology)

    I begin this post with an apology: I am an idiot, and apparently
    incapable of reading. Fortunately, Shrdlu called this to my
    attention.

    My announcement of the Coffee Wars winner at the closing ceremony
    was erroneous: apparently, I am unable to look at a column in a
    spreadsheet and pick the biggest number. The coffee that received
    first place was actually second place: it was great coffee, but it
    was judged out by another competitor. When I looked at the
    spreadsheet to identify the winner, I simply misread the scores,
    and picked the wrong one.

    I have no excuse and I apologize.

    I've notified both contestants, and we will be awarding two
    championship mugs this year-- since it would be unacceptable to
    withdraw the one that was announced at the winning ceremony. In
    addition, it should be noted that the second-place contestant whose
    name I announced as the winner really did have some excellent
    coffee.

    So, then.

    The bang-for-the-buck winner remains, as stated, Brian with his
    entry "Salawesi Schitso." His bang-for-the-buck score was 1.5,
    rivaled only by "Peaberry Scuffle," his other entry. Clearly,
    this is an area in which home production pays dividends.

    And finally, the winner of CoffeeWars 9, with an overall score of
    7.5, is G Mark Hardy with "Aloha Fed" (Royal Kona Roy's Blend),
    hand-carried straight from Hawaii. Well played, G Mark.

    Sorry, once again, to the two contestants whose scores I reversed.

    That concludes this Coffee War. Shrdlu will be posting the full
    results spreadsheet in the very near future, over on the
    coffeewars.org web site. View the judges' ratings and comments!
    Relive the insanity! And see you next year.

    This is what I'm for, of course. I will fight anyone who calls you an idiot, however. You were just too busy contemplating the role of Zed.

    The best thing in my book is that my two personal favorites were these very coffees. Clearly, as a judge, I am brilliant. Too bad I'm not as amusing as Der Foofus, but I have excellent talent at drinking and appreciating fine coffee.
