Barista Showdown 2015

Thursday, June 18th, 2015


This past Saturday, Daniel, manager of our Market street café, competed in the 3rd annual Barista Showdown. In coordination with Caravan Coffee and the American Barista & Coffee School, Kobos Coffee helped sponsor the event. All proceeds will benefit the Newberg Area Habitat for Humanity.

The competitors presented judges with their best shot of espresso, best cappuccino, and their own signature drink. Daniel’s signature drink was his interpretation of a ginger snap. He used steamed almond milk, heavy molasses, fresh ginger and our own Fiera Organica Espresso. The competition was fierce. At the end of the day, the winner was Cole Werfelman from South Store Café in Scholls.  We are proud to be a part of this tradition of friendly competition and community support.
