  • Barista Competition Routine by Chris Deferio of The Coffee Institute
  • Chris has been a finalist in the United States Barista Championships, won and served as a judge in the Millrock Free Pour Latte Art Championship, and is currently Training Director at The Coffee Institute in Muncie, Indiana. Chris will be sharing the routine he's using in regional and, hopefully, national competition this year as a way of showcasing to us his skillful presentation of specialty coffee. He's also a really nice guy who isn't afraid to walk around the shady parts of Seattle, just to hang with coffee people.
  • Hario Products
  • The coffee world has become quite enamored with Hario in the past year or so, particularly with their hand mills and V60 pour-over style of brewer. We'll have plenty of these products on display for all of you to inspect, up close and in person, ready for you to purchase if you so desire.
  • Brewing Demos
  • What, you think we'd just show you the goods without serving some up, too? No, sir! We'll be pouring brews using the V60, pulling shots with the paddle-group Linea, and generally creating all sorts of coffee deliciousness. All for you to consume. For free.
  • Latte Art Contest judged by Chris Deferio, Jesse Harriott, and Ryan Soeder
  • Details:
  • Due to time constraints we are limiting the number of contestants to 24. It will be FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, so if you want to compete make sure you show up early.
  • It's going to be single elimination head-to-head tournament style.
  • You can bring your own mugs and pitchers.
  • There will be prizes for 1st and 2nd place.
  • It's FREE to compete.
  • Judges:
  • You already know about some of Chris Deferio's credentials, the likes of which are much longer than we have listed above. Jesse Harriott is a close friend of Mr. Deferio, having known and worked together during their days in New York. Jesse's coffee skills are many, and he's an extremely under-appreciated gem of Louisville's coffee community. Rumor has it that he's working on a special little espresso blend just for use at the Bash. Ryan Soeder is a new addition to the judges table having recently taken 3rd place at the Millrock Free Pour Latte Art Contest in NY/NJ.
Friday, March 26th, 8pm, Quills Coffee, 930 Baxter Ave.
