Baristas from both cities will put their latte art skills to the test as they host concurrent events that will be streamed in DC and Chicago. The finalists from the two locations will square off to determine an overall champion.
The event is organized in the city by DMV Coffee. “We’re quite proud of the quality of baristas around here, so it’s time to have some fun and let it all hang out in a throwdown between DC and Chicago,” said Jonathan Riethmaier, who co-organizes the throwdowns with DMV Coffee. “It’s also a great opportunity to come out and cheer on your local coffee pros in a different environment than what you may be used to.”
