SANTA MONICA— Yesterday the delayed Primo Passo Coffee Co. on Montana at 7th unveiled signage, meanwhile barista training is in progress. A reader writes in to say that "Katie O'Shea, Primo Passo's coffee educator, was chosen to represent Primo Passo Coffee Co. at the upcoming 2012 Ted conference (Coffee Common) starting this Sunday. This is impressive, given only a handful of barista from all over the world are chosen for this prestigious event filled with the biggest and brightest." [Eater Inbox]
