Espresso Parts Presents TNTNW at Spotted Cow

December 10, 2014

Our November #TNTNW was held at Spotted Cow about twenty minutes out of Seattle. Spotted Cow is home to Maxwell Mooney who recently placed third in the NW region barista competition! He along with the wonderful crew have been elevating their local coffee scene and they’re doing an amazing job! Not only does Spotted Cow serve some pretty amazing espresso they also offer delicious gelato and ice cream which we all got to sample.

It was beautiful to see pretty much every coffee person come out for the event. We packed the house y’all, standing room only. It’s not hard to believe it but the 32 person bracket filled up in less than 10 minutes! This is the second time in a row that our bracket has filled up so quickly (the first was a month earlier in Portland during Coffee Fest) and we’re very sorry that we had to turn some folks away. As usual the latte art was top notch! The beer was flowing and the pizza was plentiful. After a couple of hours of war we had our top three!

Huge thanks to all of our amazing sponsors and everyone that showed up to support your fellow coffee professionals! See you in 2015.

Espresso Parts Presents TNTNW at Christopher David Experience

November 20, 2014

Last month we had the absolute pleasure of presenting #TNTNW at The Christopher David Experience (CDX) in Portland’s iconic Pearl District. CDX is an amazing space. This place is a cafe rolled into a high end interior design store wrapped in a floral shop. It’s all kinds of awesome.

The TNT was the unofficial kickoff to Coffee Fest Portland. We were expecting a high turnout especially since this was the first time CF landed in Portland. Well, everyone came out to party! Our 32 person bracket usually fills in about 30 minutes but this time it was 6! We were bursting at the seams.

Not only were we bursting at the seams we were bursting with talent. Tons of baristas from overseas were in Portland to compete at the CF latte art championship. Yusuke Ota who won #TNTJP at Streamer Cofffee, our very good friends from the Barista Training Centre in Taipei, and Puerto Rico’s Latte Art Champion Abner Roldáno to name a few.

Obviously there were tons of amazing pours throughout the night! Plenty of beer was consumed and all the fun was had.

We love presenting these events and it wouldn’t be the same without our gracious hosts, terrific sponsors, and all of you out there! Thanks for making #TNTNW so awesome!

See you at Spotted Cow http://bit.ly/TNTNWatSCow

Surf’s up! Our latest EP Custom Shop job for Will & Co. marks the first time we have customized a brand new Faema espresso machine. We have previously restored a vintage E61 belonging to 49th Parallel some years ago but this time we got to work on an unsullied machine!

Situated in Sydney’s beautiful Bondi Beach, Will & Co. is a boutique Cafe that specializes in quality coffee and excellent food. They’re off the beaten path and only open for very limited hours. These two factors and the fact that they pull some amazing shots and serve great food have added to their cult status in the neighborhood.

  • Weathered wood badge and cup rail
  • Etched glass back panel with hand crafted copper leaf inlay
  • Etched side panels
  • Copper plated trim work
