Day 1 – Mid-Atlantic Barista Competition

Written by Amy | No Comments

Emily and Zack were freakin great today! They finished under the 15 min time limit and they say their 12 espresso drinks were beautiful. Batdorf and Bronson, the espresso was WOWZERS! Turner Dairy, the milk was delicious as always. It’s difficult to see the drinks from the peanut gallery and the audience doesn’t get to taste the drinks either so from our standpoint it’s all about how it looks and the presentations given by the baristas -our baristas looked and sounded great. With amazing poise and style, they shared their passion and comittement to Tazza D’Oro, the coffee, the milk and the art and craft of being a barista. That’s called a WIN!

Here are a few pics to capture the day-
