On March 18th Dalton Rhone, one of baristas and educators, won us the title of America's Best Espresso at Coffee Fest Baltimore. The head to head competition pitted roasting companies against each other in a 'spro showdown. Each competitor had 10 minutes to serve three espressos to three judges. Based on a scoresheet of mouthfeel, body, and sessionability, the judges picked the more palatable drink to move on. After four rounds, with the final against Elixr of Philadelphia, we (well, Dalton) were able to secure the win.
