The competition is over. Everyone’s packed up their cups for another year. And it was an amazing competition! Both to be a part of and to watch.
The judges had their work cut out for them last night determining the winners out of what was a group of really talented baristas. I’m so proud of all of the hard work that everyone put in!
First place went once again to the talented and poised Ben Put! We all saw the hard work he put in and he certainly was highly deserving of this win. Watch out regionals!
In a close second place finish was the ever exuberant and equally talented Jeremy Ho. His espresso looked beautiful and he certainly put a lot of hard work in the week leading up to the competition.
Third place: Chris Tellez
Fourth place: Elyse Bouvier
Fifth place: Tim Houghton
Sixth place: Owen Edwards
The scores between all the competitors was very close and it was an amazing night to be surrounded and inspired by everyone’s passion for coffee. Photos coming soon.
Thanks to everyone who came out to support the competitors, help judge, take photos, make food, or do the dishes. It was our best competition yet!
Up next… regionals!
