Teresa von Fuchs, a coffee and espresso consultant for iconic New York roaster Dallis
Bros. Coffee, will percolate a specialty caffeinated cocktail during the second annual
Coffee Cocktail Mash Up, which will take place on Sunday, June 24 at 5 p.m. at
Weather Up in Tribeca.
Teresa makes no beans about participating in specialty coffee competitions and
educational events. She was a judge for the U.S. Barista Competition, trained competitors for the Northeast Regional Barista Competition and competed in the Brewers Cup.
During the Coffee Cocktail Mash Up, Teresa will partner with Meaghan Doorman of
Raines Law Room, as the twosome will grind against four other teams, consisting of one
barista and one bartender, in this throw-down style competition. Teams will pour their
concoctions before a panel of judges, who will evaluate each novelty beverage for flavor, balance, concept, and presentation. The judges are: Robert Simonson of The New York Times; Mari Uyehara of Time Out NY; Kara Newman of Wine Enthusiast; Shawn Kelly of Pernod Richard; and Mike White of ShotZombies.com.
With an entry fee of $20, attendees will not only witness the competition, but also
enjoy single origin espressos from Dallis Bros. Coffee’s espresso bar, which will be
offered before and after the competition takes place. Attendees will also get to sip a
complimentary coffee cocktail and can order standard drinks and bar bites from Weather Up’s bar. Order tickets through http://coffeecocktailmashup.eventbrite.com.
A fundraiser, the Coffee Cocktail Mash Up will benefit the panel members of “Coffee:
The Missing Ingredient,” a new seminar on coffee cocktails. Proceeds will help to cover
travel costs for these members to attend this seminar at Tales of the Cocktail in New
Orleans this July.
Teresa von Fuchs is available for interviews and can share exciting coffee recipes. Press
interested in conducting a one-on-one interview in person or by phone should contact
