NERBC Competitor Times!

As we’ve mentioned once or twice in the past, the 2012 Northeast Regional Barista Competition is THIS WEEKEND, February 25 and 26 at 7W Studios, 7 West 34th Street, in New York City. We’re proud to host this event in the city we’ve roasted coffee in for nearly 100 years, and we’re even prouder of the eight talented baristas representing our coffee that registered to compete this year!

If you’d like to catch some of the action, either stop by the competition anytime Saturday from 8am-5pm or Sunday (finals!) from noon til 5. Those tuning in at home can watch a live stream here. Check out these guys if you get the chance—they have been working SO hard.
