Have to say, we are pretty excited for this weekend. Our own, Sarah Dooley, will be competing in the Northwest Regional Barista Competition. To our knowledge it’s the first time a competitor has competed on behalf of an espresso machine company, versus a roaster.

“Sarah has added a new depth to our team and we are thrilled to have her competing this year; we wish her the best!”

– Joe Monaghan

The NWRBC will be held at the Tacoma Convention Center (1500 Broadway, Tacoma, WA 98402) Friday through Sunday and is open to the public!

Sarah will be the #15 competitor for the first round (Saturday, going on a little before 1pm).

In her words, she’s “excited to see her friends again, in this setting, and stoked on how the community comes together for the competition.”

Please come and support the competitors, SCAA & Barista Guild of America; hope to see you there!
