Thump not trump… don’t get it confused. This coffee shop sits in the heart of downtown Bend, OR. Thump coffee has a unique vibe and serves great coffee along with special house made syrups. Next time you visit Bend be sure they on your coffee crawl list!
Baristas traveled from all over Oregon to compete at Thump. Judges sat away from the bar and were presented each round lattes on a separate tray. Judges picked the best pour blindly and the winner moved on the next round.
Baristas went head to head until the last round. The top 3 baristas competed to determine 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place.
Congratulations to our top three winners, William Wayne Ball-Gilbert from Sisters Coffee for first. Michaela Tufy from Thump coffee for second and Nathan Hunt from Sisters Coffee for third.
Huge thanks to our hosts and sponsors Thump Coffee, Kalita Japan, Yama Glass, Barista Basics, plus all the good folks in attendance from all over the Pacific Northwest!
On August 17th we’ll be in Redding California at Heritage Coffee Roasting Company!
Until next time,
