A DAMN FINE SOURCE FOR COFFEE

January TNT Recap

January’s Thursday Night Throwdown kicked with old faces in new spaces. Our host was Room 11, with its newly added cafe. With a hopper full of Vigilante Espresso and a refrigerator filled with with Trickling Springs milk it was ready to go down. Our judges, former 2012 Throwdown winners Travis Beckett (Peregrine) and Mike Sammartino (Dolcezza) alongside Eric Barth (Room 11) had their work cut out for them as the theme of the night seemed to be take no prisoners!

As the night progressed we saw some great art from crowd favorite Tryst and its big Barista family, but it came down to Donte Gardner of  The Coffee Bar whose tulip execution propelled him into the final pour and Trevor Corlett of Madcap Coffee whose has an arsenal of art that is truly respected.

The final pour was a toughy even for these two experienced Baristas. The challenge was to use skim milk poured into a steam pitcher. While it was a close call, the victor of the night was Mr. Corlett of Madcap who walked away with the coveted tamper trophy, the cash pool and a gift certificate from Room 11.

TNT January was a great way to start off the year. Big thanks to our host Portia and the Room 11 team, sponsors Trickling Springs Milk and Vigilante Coffee and everyone who came to take part in the evenings event. The next Thursday Night Throwdown is at Tryst, Febuarary 14!
