Local Coffee Roaster Tasting
Latte Art Battle to the Death
"Come to flaunt your skills or bask in the glory of Puddletown's finest pours. Rub elbows with local roasters, packers and pullers" This event is part of a larger effort to unite the Portland coffee community. We've been trying to spread the word the old fashioned way (riding around town and handing out flyers at coffee shops) but a little print exposure would be incredibly helpful. We really want every coffee dork in this town to have an opportunity to jam with us. Oh, and you mortals are welcome too. If you haven't been to a barista jam before, you have not lived. A room full of people geeked out on coffee. . . drinking beer. . .smack talking. . . tasting. . . pouring. In a word: heaven. Portland will be hosting the United Stated Barista Competition in early March. We hope that this event will be just the kick in the pants our fair city needs to get focused on the beans.
The competitors: Cherry Coffee Roasters, Courier Coffee Roaster, Cellar Door Coffee Roasters, St. Johns Coffee Roasters, World Cup Coffee Roasters, Coava Coffee Roasters,
and our neighbors from the Columbia Gorge:
10 Speed Coffee Roasters, Hood River, Oregon, Sasquatch Coffee Roasters, Skamania, Washington
