a cup of TNT
Coffee Eiland put on the TNT competition this month. They are a wholesale roaster with great equipment to show off their coffees to clients. I have been meaning to come out to their place in Richardson for a while so it was great to see everyone there. I especially loved the neon coffee sign.
There was a big group this month and I really enjoyed meeting some new faces. There’s still a smaller showing of girls than guys competing and one of my good friends and competitors is leaving us for Houston so if any girls out there are thinking about competing I want to see you next month. It was very nice to be joined by a couple other baristas from Avoca and to hang out with our fellow Dallas baristas. Mike Mettendorf took home the victory this month after challenging Jonathan Aldrich. It was a beautiful show of tulip latte art but Mike was the victor. He’ll be judging next month at the Oaklawn coffee event! Can’t wait to see you there!
