A DAMN FINE SOURCE FOR COFFEE
As 2012 comes to a close, we’d like to wish everyone a happy holiday season, and take this opportunity to share a few updates about DMV Coffee and the monthly Thursday Night Throwdowns. But first we must acknowledge the talented trifecta of Judith Mandel, Bryan Duggan and Christy Baugh who have been such excellent stewards of barista competitions and events in and around the District. As announced during the December TNT at Big Bear Cafe, they’re now passing the baton, and we look forward to continuing the good name of DMV Coffee and TNT Washington, DC, through the coming year and beyond. If you happen to bump into Jude or Bryan or Baugh, be sure to drop a kind word for all their hard work. Baugh, as many now know, is heading to North Carolina, though she’ll be near to our hearts.
With that said, here’s a quick glance at the folks now entrusted with TNT Washington DC and DMV Coffee. Don’t hesitate to reach out to say hi or inquire about happenings in the coming year.
We’re kicking off the New Year with a TNT at one of DC’s newest coffee operations, Room 11 in Columbia Heights. Room 11 has agreed to host on Thursday, January 10. Additional details will be posted to DMV Coffee.com soon, but mark you calendar for what’s sure to be a stellar event. As always, 8:30 to sign up and 9 p.m. to pour. Thanks so much to Room 11 for hosting. We look forward to seeing you there!
Also, we’ll be continuing the District Cup into 2013. If you’re not familiar, the District Cup is an overall points competitions that will be tracked throughout the year. In 2013, all TNTs will be part of the District Cup competition. A winner will be crowned at the end of the year and will receive heaps of praise and as well as a bounty to be determined. Congratulations to Travis Beckett of Peregrine Espresso for his overall victory in the 2012 District Cup!
That and much more is on the way. We’re also confirming locations for future months, so if you’d like to host a TNT please contact any one of the team to get things started. E-mails can be sent to Trevor, Jonathan, Antajuan, Chris or Colin.
