Northeast Regional Barista Competition
We're proud of all of the competitors at this year's Northeast Regional Barista Competition (NERBC) for continuing to elevate the craft of coffee. We're honored to have so many dedicated, talented folks representing our coffees, as well. And, we are super-excited that Samuel Lewontin of Everyman Espresso in New York won the NERBC Barista Competition!
Check out Samuel's suggested espresso parameters for Mpemba – the coffee from Burundi used in his winning presentation.
Brian Gellently from Ultimo Coffee in Philadelphia also used Mpemba and placed second in the barista competition! In the Brewers Cup, Counter Culture NYC's Erin McCarthy and Amanda Whitt from Everyman Espresso were both finalists using Buziraguhindwa, also from Burundi.
Congratulations and thanks for all of your hard work!
