Last Thursday was the third installment of TNT NW and it was a good one. Neptune was gracious enough to host this kickoff to the Coffee Fest weekend. We had some great Baristas in attendance from all over. Nicely, Lewontin and Cannon I’m looking at you!
It’s a little difficult writing re-caps of throwdowns because well people poured a lot of pretty things in cups. What I think is worth reporting is the continual feeling of community. We are getting Baristas behind machines they haven’t used before and they’re pouring against people they haven’t worked with. I for one got to use the Synesso for the first time thanks to the Neptune TNT!
Big thanks to Our judges Dismas, Sara Z. and Mr. Leon. They rocked it! Major props to Mr. Mike Cannon for taking the first place pour against Mr. Brandon Paul Weaver(thanks Cannon). Cannon won a lot of money and street cred. And of course thanks to everyone who came to cheer on their favorite Barista! Without all of your support these event would be lame.
