For the first time, we made the trip down to Eugene, OR to host a Thursday Night Throwdown Northwest. The Barn Light opened up their east location to baristas from all over Southern Oregon to come compete.
The Barn Light’s strength is not just in their coffee, but in their perfect combination of cool late night bar vibes and clean coffee aesthetic. They served beer, wine and cocktails while a DJ spun tunes.
Baristas went head to head pulling shots of Bespoken Coffee from Corvallis and steaming milk for a perfect silky smooth texture. It’s always incredible to come into a town with a growing coffee community and watch the specialty coffee culture thrive.
Thanks to all who came out to party with us. Congrats to our winners 3rd Place goes to Jamie Peng of Glass House Coffee Bar.
2nd Place goes to Jonathan Paul Doerr of La Marzocco USA up in Seattle who traveled down via bus just for the event!
1st Place goes to Raymond Detweiler of The Barn Light East.
Thanks to our sponsors for helping make this event possible – Espresso Parts, Kalita, Barista Basics, Yama Glass and The Barn Light for hosting.
Tacoma, WA, we are coming for you!
Next TNTNW will be at The Curb Orchard on March 23rd.
