The farmers we visited grow coffee served at our local train station cafe here in Waterbury, Vermont.
Our friend Rusty from Bunn takes a moment to discuss the Bunn Trifecta, a brilliant new by-the-cup brewing device that automates a lot of the finicky manual-brew techniques to craft complex, reproducible cups every time.
Showing off some serious skills by creating a yogurt/milk based foam which compliments his Papa New Guinea Espresso (Counter Culture).
5th Bar Cafe is the exclusively Dallis Bros-branded cafe located in the entrance to the event. All coffees are brewed in either a slow-brew method or on a beautifully-crafted lever espresso machine from Nuova Simonelli.
The prize fight, the main attraction, the feature presentation! Hosted by the crew at Dallis Bros. Coffee, this year’s NERBC is staged to present one of the single greatest meetings of spro-slingers this side of 2010!
This is the day your local macchiato maestro has been tirelessly preparing for these past few months. This is why your cappuccino foam is now more silk than dairy, and why your daily doppio has been served with everything from wood-steeped orange honey to puffs of bacon-flavored foam.
The NERBC is the ultimate showcase of barista skills, pitting competitors against each other, their coffee and time itself! The barista’s are given 15 minutes with which to wow judges with their mastery of the product and their tools. In this time, they must present to the judges three flights of coffees including espressos, cappuccinos and a signature beverage of the barista’s creation.
Often seen screaming at others and busting chops, “el jefe” will make sure stuff gets done.
Sure to be seen around the 5th Machine Café, the competition floor, the NERBC party, the NERBC party throwdown, and at the Brewer’s Cup – all at the same time!

Will be overseeing the classes and the pop up café along with representing full tilt in the NERBC!
As a guerrilla reporter, I will be trawling the dark edges of the event, reporting the news as it breaks, and with crushing objectivity! Will be leading educational courses on espresso and latte art technique.
