SDCN is proud to be a part of this event organized by Slayer Espresso. Their words below
"We’re teaming up with our partners at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters to roll out this massive joy ride, the #Slayer5K.
The SLAYER5K begins with 64 competitors separated into two 32 person brackets via blind draw for seeding. Barista’s compete head to head with an immediate elimination. The top three competitors from each bracket will move on to the finals. Here’s where it gets interesting. Every drink that does not move forward throughout the competition will be given a score (judging parameters on our blogpost). The two top scores from the losers circle (either bracket) will come back into the competition as the great eight! These folks are vying for very big cash prizes:
FIRST PLACE, $5000
SECOND PLACE, $1250
THIRD PLACE, $650
FOURTH PLACE, $300
Buy-in is $20 to compete, complimentary to attend as a guest. Guests and competitors are automatically entered into our prize raffle, tickets and two beverage vouchers are complimentary, available at the door.
