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

Espresso Parts Custom Shop x Will & Co. Coffee

November 15, 2014

EP_x_WllCo_E61-6

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.

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

Mazzer Robur -

  • Hand painted design
  • Weathered wood badge

Espresso Parts & Streamer Coffee Present #TNTJP 2K14

October 3, 2014

Hiroshi-TNTJP-TampsWe had the extreme pleasure of sponsoring another installment of #TNTJP! This event was special for a couple of reasons, it served as the unofficial kick-off party for SCAJ and it was the first #TNTJP at Streamer Coffee’s newest location in Gohongi. We had even more people show up to this event than last year! It’s so great to see the community grow.

Competitors were battling for some pretty amazing prizes! We created custom gold, silver, and bronze tamps for the champs. Casio G-shock upped the ante with a one of a kind gold G-Shock with EP and Streamer logos on them (this is the 2nd time they’ve done this for us). there were also prizes from AKTR and New Balance.

See you next year!

Congratulations to the winners:

1st place: Yusuke Ota Downstairs Coffee
2nd place: Kazuma Ozaki Air Cafe
3rd place: Kenta Tamura Double Tall Cafe

Espresso Parts Presents TNTNW at Anthem Coffee & Tea

September 29, 2014

Espresso Parts brought #TNTNW to the small town of Puyallup and it went off in a big way. Puyallup is a 40 minute drive south of Seattle and known more for the state fair than being a coffee destination. Anthem Coffee & Tea is here to change that! Their cafe is large (they recently expanded) and yet cozy at the same time. They do PNW hipness real well; lots of reclaimed wood, old hand painted signs, and warm fireplace. They even have a phone booth in the cafe that customers can use as a quiet space or to make personal calls without annoying their fellow cafe goers. They also serve some awesome craft coffees and tasty food!

The cafe is large but we had no problem filling it up! Normally the competitor to attendee ratio is pretty even but we were happily surprised to see that a good number of folks that showed up were there to cheer on their favorite barista or see what the coffee community was up to. The surprise match-up of the night was U.S. Barista Champ Laila Ghambari Vs. Guatemala National Champ Teco Echeverria, Laila made it to the next round! Panda even got in on the fun and poured what some would call latte art!

Winner winner chicken dinner:

1) Kyle Dols Sound Coffee & Morsel
2) Tiff Winters
3) Cristian Frostof Girón AKA Frosty

Huge thanks to Anthem Coffee & Tea for hosting and being so awesome. Dillanos get’s a shout out too for making the event poster, donating the espresso, aaaand helping to make the event run smoothly. If you’d like to see the pours from the night head to Dillanos’ Twitter account. They photographed every pour from the night!

The winners went home with an array of awesome prizes from our amazing sponsors: Espresso Parts,Barista Magazine, Baratza, Craft Coffee, Cuppow, Rip Van Wafels, and Imbibe Magazine!

See you at Christopher David Experience for Coffee Fest kick off throwdown 10/16!
