Death Match

Lindsay, Kimmy, Wiggles and Devlin listen to the Death Match rules.

Death Match.

Even the words conjure fear in the hearts of gladiators.

Tonight is the La Marzocco Hand Brew Death Match pitting baristas against each other in a mano y mano fight to the death for prizes. The person with the highest scores for presentation, taste and Extract Mojo scores wins.

A modicum of pilfering accompanies any coffee event.

Almost as many brew methods as Spro Hampden. Almost.

I don't want to know and didn't want to ask.

Almost ready.

A certain amount of concentration and meditation is required for brewing Chemex.
