This is for the most part behind the scenes footage at Coffee Common, TED 2012.

I'd like to say a big thank you to all of the Coffee Common organizers for allowing Chris and I to be a part of this beautiful event, and thank all the great baristas I had the privilege to work along-side this week. It was a great experience, and given the opportunity, I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Please note: I was limited in what footage I could take as I wasn't able to record attendees, nor during busy periods because it was too crazy. I also missed about half of the baristas taking part in coffee common, so this is by no means a complete video of everyone.
