Latte Throwdown in NYC

Posted on August 24, 2009


Congrats are in order for Faith from Spruce Street Espresso!!  She entered a latte art throwdown at Counter Culture’s training lab in NYC last thursday and she won!!!  Faith went up against some of New York’s finest barista and although she was nervous pulled out the win!  When as how she felt while pouring her winning rosetta here  repsonse was ,”I think that because my hand was shaking so much it helped with my shake out” as she laughed out loud. The judges who had to make the tough decision of who would make it to the next round included Amber Sather of Cafe Grumpy, Katie Carguilio of Counter Culture Coffee, and Katie Duris a recent addition to the New York scene.  Many coffee shops were represented such as Cafe Grumpy, Everyman Epresso,  and Third Rail Coffee just to name a few.  We had alot of fun at the throwdown and made many new coffee friends, who we hope will come visit soon!  Til next post!  Press on folks!
