Kyle Ramage and Lemeul Butler
David Sedaris doesn't just tell a funny
story, and Kyle Ramage and Lemeul
Butler don't just brew a cup of coffee.
They're what you call champions, and
they have the titles to back it up. Lem is
the 2016 U.S. Barista Champion, and Kyle
holds that honor for 2017. Lem placed
fourth globally at the 2016 World Barista
Championship; Kyle placed sixth in 2017.
That's right, for two years running the
national champion was right here in the
Raleigh area, not in New York or San
Francisco. We're kind of proud of that!
And now you can enjoy a taste of their
combined talent. The pair teamed up last
year to buy a local coffee shop, which
they renamed Black & White Coffee
Roasters. Together they serve a carefullycurated selection of coffees from around
314 Brooks St., Wake Forest,
