OLY vs. ATL Manual Brew Battle
A Manual Brewing Battle is this: a coffee brewing competition whereby baristas are judged not on the method, but on the aspects of the finished cup. It’s a blind-judged competition, and is totally fair for all. All use the same coffee, and each barista has 10 minutes to submit their final brew to the judges who evaluate it based on aroma, flavor, body, and balance. The scoring is done by a panel of three judges which includes a local coffee lover (not a professional), a local coffee professional, and a local chef. The competition will be against the Atlanta and Southeast region baristas that will be at our Atlanta roastery via Skype video chat.
Sunday, January 16th 4pm
The event will be held at Batdorf & Bronson’s Olympia and Atlanta coffee roasteries.
