Erin M. with Gimme Coffee speaks to Dan Mueller about the competition at the NERBC 2011, performance time during the brewers cup, and the overall excitement of the event. ERIN WON THE NERBC 2011 BREWERS CUP!!!! Congrats ERIN!!!
As the 2011 NERBC chugs along, we have the distinct pleasure of seeing a manual-brew master at work. Note the controlled pouring angle, impeccable posture and menacingly black ceramic Bon Mac cones!
Her opposition are trembling in their vintage flats and desert boots!
The Brewer’s Cup is a recent addition to the United States Barista Championship circuit. In it, baristas are tasked with brewing a mystery coffee for a panel of judges before being given the opportunity to brew one of their personal favorite coffees.
This little competition is new to the circuit, but it’s making a big splash. Finally, manual brewing is getting the widespread exposure it deserves!
