As you may know, we started doing monthly barista events called Thursday Night Throwdowns at the café this fall. We wrote about them here, if you want a refresher.
This month, we take the event on the road, to D Squared Java in Exeter. D Squared is owned by Dan, who won our first TNT and returned to judge the second one. D Squared Java is located at 155 Water Street in Exeter. The event is this Thursday, Nov. 14. Doors open at 8 and the festivities start with a lesson on steaming. The Throwdown portion of the event starts at 9. We’d love to see you there whether you’re a seasoned barista or just someone who’s curious about latte art and how it happens.
It’s our goal to build a thriving and connected coffee and barista community in New Hampshire. To do that, we felt it was more important to have people from all over the state attend the TNTs, than to force people make the trek to Amherst to attend.
To that end, we’ll be looking for other cafes to partner with in 2014. We’ll bring the TNTs home every so often but we’re actively searching for cafes that are interested in hosting a TNT event.
In related news, we got some wonderful exposure from Barista Magazine this fall. You can check out the blog post here .
