Baristas are the craftsmen and women who have the task of honoring the farmer with the final preparation of the coffee to your cup. This group was in full force through the SCAA sanctioned Big Central Competition, an event designed to celebrate specialty coffee and the passion behind brewing. What better way to showcase extraordinary talents and visionary thinking in specialty coffee than through friendly competition!

THRIVE’s VP of Coffee Excellence, Rob Tuttle, who often judges in barista competitions around the world, reflects on his road to becoming a judge in a recent blog post via The Barista Guild.

Enjoy our photos from Big Central, and congratulations to Lorenzo Perkins from Cuvee Coffee for winning the South Central Brewers Cup.
