As this slide show demonstrates, the competition last Friday night was frothy and furious at Fluid Coffee Bar's "Live to the Fullest Cup" fundraiser for local Novo coffee roaster Semeon Abay, who was recently diagnosed with advanced metastatic prostate cancer. Shots were pulled, milk was steamed and froth was sculpted into masterpieces. Best of all, proceeds went to one of the local coffee scene's most celebrated characters.
