Irish Coffee Notes

It was only three months ago I was posting a picture of an enormous glass of Irish coffee. But the Buena Vista Café's world record has already been toppled. The World's Largest Irish Coffee was made and consumed on Friday, in Cardiff, in the run up to CeltFest 2009. (Thank you to Dwyer McClorey for drawing my attention to this.)

Diageo (Bushmills) sponsored the attempt, and contributed 13 litres of their own spirit. And this time there is a video...

Since we are on the topic of coffee, I must congratulate friend of Irish Whiskey Notes, Colin Harmon, who became the 2009 Irish Barista Champion this week. I know Colin from the Science of Taste and Aroma class I took last year so I like to think I had something to do with his rise to fame :-)
