Event description

Description

One of the issues we see with a typical latte art throwdown is that they generate a huge amount of waste! Plus, there’s a lot more to being a barista than just pouring latte art. We like to think our motto for this Barista Skills Throwdown is ‘Not just another throwdown.’ This Barista Skills Throwdown is focused on different types of barista abilities. So here’s what’s different:

  • One round will be a “dialing in” competition where baristas have to dial in a grinder and machine to certain specs. Fastest and most accurate barista wins.

  • We will have one traditional latte art round as well as one with an alternative milk

  • We’ll have a taster’s cup competition running

  • During the latte art rounds, we’ll be auctioning off the finished drinks with the proceeds going to Water Street Studios.

Our last throwdown in 2018 we had 100 people crammed into a cafe to watch 16 people compete! We had lots of buzz from the event before and after the event where Barista magazine, Acaia scales, Baratza, and others promoted our event via their social media outlets.

We love supporting local businesses and bringing more awareness to the coffee community, that is rapidly growing. That being said, we are in need of sponsors for our event. We admire your dedication to the local community and we’d love to have you sponsor us! The Barista Skills Throwdown will be held on May 23, 2019, at Penrose Brewing Company located at 509 Stevens St, Geneva, IL 60134. The event will begin at 6:00 pm and the throwdown will begin pouring at 7 pm.

We look forward to you joining us for our event and may the best barista, win!

Please also share this event on your social media to help us spread the word, we would greatly appreciate it!
