A DAMN FINE SOURCE FOR COFFEE
In honor of the start of the Barista Competition season Madcap Coffee is hosting this months TNT in their office space in Dupont Circle. Prior to the TNT, starting at 7pm, will be this years first Prepfest and the first Prepfest event to ever hit the East Coast. What the heck is a Prepfest you may ask? Prepfest is an event focused on preparing baristas for the upcoming Big East Regional Barista Competition. The event will feature the reviewing of a USBC finals performance with live feedback from both competitors and USBC certified judges. Audience members will also receive copies of the competitors USBC score sheets for review. Following that a USBC competitor will serve an espresso round with the judges doing a live evaluation and calibration. The Prepfest will wrap up with a panel discussion composed of both competitors and judges followed by a short Q&A.

The monthly DC TNT will be immediately following the Prepfest with an opportunity to talk further with competitors and judges during the TNT. As always pouring will start at 9pm and it’s a $5 buy in. Sign-ups will not begin until the Prepfest ends.
