On Tuesday the 26th in Cafe Frühling in Basel, the 13th Tuesday Night Throwdown Latte Art Competition was held. And we were there! It was an unforgettable experience! I swear, I have never seen so many coffee people in my whole life, let alone at one place!
Anyway, let’s continue. As I said, there were many people – 42 of them participated (next time we’ll take part too!) and what surprised me most was that actually some of them had never poured lattes before. Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that everyone has the opportunity to participate, but there were the best of the best baristi in Switzerland, so I didn’t really expect it. Everybody knew each other, talked, laughed, so it was not a competition in the real sense of the word, it was more like having fun with friends.
About the pictures…well, we weren’t equipped properly and the photos are really crappy, but there was Maurice Greder from Hochprozentig GmbH who documented everything. You can check out some of the pictures on the official TNT blog here.
Congratulations to Luzia Taschler 1st place and Alex Back – 2nd! Thank you once again for the amazing evening, we definitely look forward to the next TNT!
