It’s been a whirlwind of a month, as we’ve been running from event to event in Boston, then down to NERBC, where Boston made a strong showing. February’s Boston TNT at Render Coffee went down on 2/16! Sixty baristas packed the space, and the competitor list filled just twenty minutes after it opened.
Marzocco for sponsoring us and picking up the tab! They also sent us a bunch of prizes, and lots of folks walked away with these swanky Marzocco – Made in Florence scarves. Counter Culture threw in prizes, including a sought-after Bonavita electric kettle.
As the competition got going, our final round pitted Ben Pratt, roaster at barismo, against the reigning TNT champion, Chuck from Render. Both chose gibraltars for their final pours, and Chuck walked away with his title intact (plus a cupload of cash)!
