We're Going to the US Barista Championship!

We're Going to the US Barista Championship!

We're thrilled to announce that Edward Griffin, a barista at our College Hill cafe, placed sixth in the US Coffee Championship Barista Qualifying Competition in Reno, NV last weekend! His high finish sends him directly to the Semi-Final round of the US Coffee Championship in Seattle, WA in April 2018. 

Lots of hard work went into his presentation in a short period of time, and we couldn't be more proud of the result!

Edward's presentation consisted of serving espresso and a signature beverage of his own creation to the judges. He competed with PT's Finca Kilimanjaro Natural, produced by Aida Batlle in El Salvador. Aida is a longtime PT's Direct Trade partner whose unique processing methods have produced truly one-of-a-kind coffees.

Our Finca Kilimanjaro Cascara Fermentation—a process involving fermenting the coffee in an infusion of the dried husks of the coffee fruit prior to drying—was recently named the sixth-best coffee of 2017 by Coffee Review.

Show Edward some love next time you visit our College Hill cafe!
