That means so far, our final throwdown field is look as follows:
Yeekai, Cognoscenti Coffee
Frank, Cafe Dulce
Nicely, Handsome Coffee Roasters
John, Intelligentsia Pasadena
Marcelino, Intelligentsia Venice
We’re working on the next 3 events so that we have the final 3 Throwdowns set, and the final location will then be announced. As always, thank you to everybody for participating, and keep coming out, supporting the community, and having a grand old time.
I apologize for the lack of updates everyone! So all’s been going well. We had a throwdown at Bru in Los Feliz which Christoper “Nicely” Abel Alameda killed in the month of May, and then John Martin plowed through the competition at Iota in June, winning the biggest pot, yet. The kind folks who host these events are stepping it up more and more, and we’re having a great time.
The next TNT will be 7/12 at Brew Coffee Bar in Santa Monica in the Yahoo! Building. First pour will be around 7pm, and they’re also providing some apps and reserved the bar area at Daily Grill for us! Word.
So come out, have some fun, and watch us kill it.
On another note, if anyone has photos from any of the events, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks everyone, and let’s keep this going!

Hey All, Just in case, finally hammered out a format and we’re making it a full season for the year. $5 buy in, winner take all some months, others we will be donating to charity (the finals will definitely be for charity). From here on out, there can only be pours based around hearts, tulips, rosettas, and any variation of those. We are going for symmetry, contrast, and cleanliness of pour. Basically, difficulty will get you nowhere if someone pours a really clean rosetta. There will be a total of 7 TnT’s, 2 have already passed. Each winner will get their name engraved on a tamper we’re having made for the 2012 season, and after 6 TNTS, we will have a final TnT with each of the 6 previous winner’s getting a bye until the round of 16, with 10 folks getting in through a final TnT bracket (sort of like USBC). At the end of the season, the winner will take home the tamper and a super awesome prize that will be revealed later. Thanks for the support everyone, and keep pouring your hearts out! - J
