Thanks to Beyu Caffe owner Dorian Bolden and his staff for letting us have some fun in his shop on Wednesday night. The competition was so fierce that even Mr. Bolden decided to hop behind the bar to pour!
We also had other incredibly talented baristas show up from all over the Triangle, including Larz from Electric Beanz, James from Bean Traders on 9th and Curtis from Beyu. The competitors each poured twice and the highest combined score determined the winner.
3rd place: Michael Harwood – Caffe Driade, Chapel Hill, NC
2nd place: Lem Butler – Counter Culture Coffee, Durham, NC
…and your winner, by a single point, Simon Aceves from La Farm Bakery in Cary, NC.
Congrats to Simon and thank you to all the competitors for a great night!
