The Phoenix Valley’s coffee scene is thriving, with the makings of local roasters, creative coffee shops and talented baristas. These are the perfect ingredients for The Legendary PHX Barista Throwdown.
There are a lot of passionate coffee lovers out there, and whether to you, coffee is an art, an expression, or your lifeline in the morning, the Barista Throwdown is a showcase of what the Phoenix Valley community brings to the table - coffee table that is! This city has a lot to offer and there are a lot of baristas in this city, but this throwdown will prove who’s pour will out-skill them all.
BUT, WAIT. HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Baristas will compete tournament style to create their most beautiful latte art. Each round will showcase two baristas pushing their limits to produce the winning pour. Every dual will be broadcasted live onto two large monitors where the audience will be able to experience every skill, steam, pour and production each Barista will make, so that you, the audience can determine which barista will battle on to the next duel.
The Baristas won’t be the only ones getting crafty with their Latte Art.
