CT’s first TNT (thursday night throwdown). it’s an excuse to drink beer, pour latte art, chat with customers outside of work, and meet people from the coffee community. surprisingly, there is a pretty big community of coffee geeks in CT which makes me super happy.
this TNT was a bit different. baristas from NEAT spent some time teaching customers how to pour, then we had a customer competition. baristas then tried their hand in a professional competition and the best of both worlds got paired together to do a barista blind-folded, customer competition.
loads of fun. above are some customer pours. not going to lie, my first few pours didn’t compare to these at all…we have some serious talent in the customer pool.
