The Cap-Off Winner Is…

Last Tuesday we held our annual Cap-Off contest to determine which of our baristas makes the best cappuccino.  The competition is fierce, and the competition style is not unlike the barista championships held in the world of specialty coffee.  The rules are strict.  All of our coffee trained employees are eligible to compete, which means there are roughly 30 competitors, broken down into brackets.  Our judges, our own master roaster Jon along with former roaster Michael and former worldling, Nicos, sip each drink in seclusion, ranking them for their composition and quality.  One by one, the brackets get smaller until we have crowned a new champion.

So who made the best cappuccino & took home the trophy last week?  This year’s competition proved to be quite a show, and when the winner was announced, the crowd went wild.   And the winner is….
Tuc wins!


Despite the fact that Tuc has trained each and every one of our coffee makers, he has never won the title of Cap-Off champ!  More pictures (courtesy of Kathy Altimirano) in the gallery below.
