‘Tis the season for our last TNT of 2015!
Cafe Javasti is nestled in the cozy neighborhood of Wedgwood in Seattle, WA. A dedicated group of baristas and coffee fans braved the holiday traffic and infamous Pacific North West rain to watch 16 baristas vie for this month’s title and prizes.
The top 3 took home a sweet prize pack: copies of Imbibe and Barista Magazine, a lovely set of Yama Glass tea cups, Espresso Parts magnet set and shirt, and a brand new pair of Brooks running shoes from their Heritage Coffee House Collection!
And 1st place also got a 1 year subscription to Imbibe and Barista Magazine, a Yama Glass Sock Pot, Acaia Scale, and cash money!
The warm cafe was filled spectators as the pours started being laid down before the judges.
Sometimes it’s so hard to choose when the latte art is this good!
Serious business contending for the top prize!
Seattle locals and TNTNW regular contenders took the top slots this month!
In 3rd Place: Defending Champ from last month, Brian Hernandez from Morsel
In 2nd Place: Dustin Thomas from Ladro Roasting
And in 1st Place: Kyle Dols from Lardo Roasting/Empire
The year has come to a close – but the fun isn’t over. 2016 will hold more TNTNWs than ever before! Check out our previous blog post with the full 2016 Schedule. Next month we’ll be at Honor Coffee in Seattle, WA.
See you in 2016! Stay Caffeinated!
