A little competition never hurt anyone…

PT's-Challange

Of the many things in life worthy of great love, coffee is near the top of the list. You love coffee. We love

coffee. For many who don’t work in the coffee industry, it can be hard to find the time to explore all the

different coffees and brew methods. Here’s the thing – you shouldn’t have to sacrifice on quality. You still

want a lipsmackingly delicious cup of Joe, so we’ve designed the PT’s Challenge with you in mind. We’ll do

the experimenting so we can share the tasty results with you. It’s a win-win situation!

 The PT’s Challenge: 

Twice a month, the team at PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. will take part in an internal competition. Many will

compete, but only one will be victorious. Here’s how it works:

 Step One: The team will select one coffee and one brew method to feature in that week’s competition.

Step Two: Each competitor will develop their own secret recipe and brew it for our panel of judges.

Creativity is encouraged – anything goes.

Step Three: We establish our bracket. Each round, our panel of judges will vote on the brew they

believe to be best and competitors will be eliminated.

Step Four: We share the winning recipe with you so you can enjoy these coffees at home

(or in a cafe) without having to do all the research yourself!

That sounds cool. When does it start?

The first official PT’s Challenge will be hosted next week! Visit our blog Friday, March 6 to get the

winning recipe and to see who won the bracket.

LOOKING BACK & LOOKING FORWARD

Well, the inaugural Flatlanders’ Barista Cup is in the books now and all of us are exhausted, but feeling pretty good!

The presentations were awesome and far beyond what I think… Continue Reading
