A DAMN FINE SOURCE FOR COFFEE
February’s TNT was great with some timed pouring and head to head action! I am going to let the pictures do some talking…
These two look like twins. Did you guys plan this? Hmmmm. Poor judges.
Epic smiley! Rumour has it that a judge had it in for anyone pouring smiley faces. IMO. TNT controversy at its best!
and, the winning pours…
First off, thanks to our sponsors Counter Culture Coffee and Daryn and Alex for BonMac, t-shirt and for making the space available. PBR and Dan VanHoozer for beverages. Wrecking ball for added coffee prizes. Great job on the photo side Travis! Thank you, Sam Penix, for coming up with the idea of a National Rosettas for Relief shindig. Judges, without you, we could not have a winner-Thanks!
Thats Liz from Baked and Wired on the left and Patrick from MidCity on the right. Patrick won this one and was Feb’s champ! The winnings were in the form of the mighty Luchador trophy and TNT D.C. bracelet along with a CCC t, some Wreckingball and a bottle of Dogfishhead. The cash pot of $250 which included donations from baristas will be donated to REBATI to benefit Haiti. On top of the $250, Peregrine Espresso owners Ryan and Jill are adding $5 for every barista who threw down. Thats another $120 for Haiti! $370 total! Nice job on short notice, coffee people.
All together a great night with some really nice pours being put down- even under the added pressure of a time limit. I love this stuff! Next TNT will be held at Chinatown Coffee on March 11th. DJ and another head to head match up with a gentle twist. See you there!
