Wayne State student, Starbucks barista generates buzz with coffee competition

To hear Jasmine Hect speak about coffee is akin to hearing a sommelier discuss wine. The 21-year-old Wayne State student and Starbucks barista's knowledge of the caffeinated bean would enlighten even the most ardent cup of joe consumer. It's this expertise (along with her gregarious personality) that helped get Hect to the 2015 Starbucks Barista Championships regional competition that takes place July 15-16 in York, Pennsylvania.
