BMag Back Atcha “ Week of September 23 “September 29, 2013

Wow! It’s been another busy week on the blog with stories from both coasts as Sarah traveled to Rhode Island for MANE, and Ken flew south to Los Angeles for Barista Nation.

In between we had all of our regular features, too including another fun week of Humpday Giveaway with an amazing prize from Espresso Parts.

Add it all up, and we need to get reviewing! So here we are with another Sunday installment of BMag Back Atcha!

First up, we had a preview of La Marzocco’s upcoming Out of the Box  event in Milan, Italy later in October.
