Tazza D'Oro Crowns a Champion!
After two days of intense training with Oliver, Emily organized another Tazza D’Oro Latte Art Throwdown. We had a great turnout and several coffee rock stars showed up representing the best of the best in Pittsburgh – Aldo Coffee and 21st Street Coffee and Tea – read what they are saying about the throw down.
We had 12 (count em) competitors – 5 from Tazza D’Oro (Emily, Braden, Zach, Tone, Chase), 5 from Aldo Coffee (Rich, Belle, John, Lauren, Frank), Luke from 21st Street and a regular at Tazza D’Oro, Matt and a pot worth 60 bucks.
And the new Champion of the Tazza D’Oro Latte Art Throwdown is….
LUKE!!! Our new champ won 36 bucks and a day off and Emily took 2nd place with 24 bucks and no day off. Oliver, Kevin and I were banished to a table away from all the action because we had the distinguished pleasure of being the judges. To me it felt like 2 hours of paper work! We were grateful for the pizza and beers.
Rich, Melanie, Luke and Alexis your presence at Tazza D’Oro meant a lot to us because we think you are awesome business owners and coffee fanatics – thank you. That was fun! Rich, thanks for taking the pictures, I especially like the main caption! Check em out folks –flickr.
