Families, community members, and baristas gathered for TNTNW at Batdorf and Bronson’s Dancing Goats in Olympia, Washington. The Cafe sits blocks away from the Puget Sound and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect.
The first round of pours began at 7pm. Spectators were able to watch the judges table through a live stream hosted on the TV above the bar. 32 baristas went head to head and only 3 walked out as winners. Things got a little crazy towards the end, by the third round competitors were pouring into other serving vessels like juicers and cake stands.
Congrats to our top 3 winners. From left to right, 1st place goes to Reyna Callejo from The Curb Orchard. 2nd goes to Ashley Meyers from Batdorf & Bronson. 3rd place goes to Jared Bugg from Batdorf & Bronson.
Huge thanks to our hosts and sponsors Batdorf and Bronson’s Dancing Goats Espresso Bar, Kalita Japan, Yama Glass, Barista Basics, plus all the good folks in attendance from all over the Pacific Northwest!
On July 27th we’ll be in Bend, Oregon at Thump Coffee!
Until next time,
