Join us for a night celebrating the Southeast's vibrant barista and coffee community! Of course there will be a ridiculous latte art throwdown, featuring some of the hottest latte artists around, including Millrock Latte Art champ Ben Helfen. This year, besides the famous super rockstar custom tamper from Espresso Parts, we are giving cool home coffee brewing packages to the top two baristas, as well as many other cool prizes from Bellissimo and Barista Magazine! This year will also host the first ever Southeast Regional City vs City Throwdown. Special Guest MC and Latte Art Extraordinaire Chris "Defurious" Deferio will be showing off what has made him a multiple and current Millrock Latte Art champion!
Prizes are as follows:
First Place- A home brewing package featuring a Baratza Virtuoso grinder, Chemex, and Digital Scale. Also, a custom first place tamper from Espresso Parts.
Second Place- A Yama Siphon Brewer, a Digital Scale, and a custom second place tamper from Espresso Parts.
Third Place-Various package from Bellissimo, a year's subscription to Barista Magazine, coffee, and other goodies, as well as a custom third place tamper from Espresso Parts.
(Plus, all participants receive a goody bag with Spouted Bell pitcher, CoffeeTool, and other swag!)
Let's not forget about the Bash! Open bar, grub, and the unstoppable and unbeatable DJ skills of former SE Regional Champ and amazing barista Lem Butler. We will be providing shuttles from and to the event for all needed.
This event is part of the BGA Southeast Regional Jam, and is sponsored by Dilworth Coffee, Carolina Espresso Services, Barista Magazine, Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup, Coffeegeek.com, Torani, and Big Train.
(There is a $5 donation to enter the throwdown, which is going to charity.)
