On August 7th, 2018, eight teams of three baristas competed for the grand prize at this brand new, ferociously fast barista battle organized by La Marzocco and hosted at our Armitage Café.
The energy and excitement were through the roof! Our all-star barista team – Tony, Mackenzie, Cassie – used their mad skills and laser-like focus to calmly crush some of the best barista teams in the industry: Colectivo, Starbucks Reserve, Intelligentsia, Stumptown, Madcap Coffee and La Colombe.
Each team was given the same list of 8 drinks to make – the drinks needed to be made perfectly in the fastest time in order to win the round.
Our barista team took us to the finals, losing to Madcap’s Professional Competition team by 1 second.
If you’ve visited our cafés lately, you know our baristas are crushing it every day!
