Thanks again to everyone who helped us kick off Thursday Night Throwdown Season 4 at Halcyon East Village, especially our season sponsor La Marzocco. Your Linea Mini is a beautiful machine. We appreciate James Coffee Co. and Swell Coffee Co. for hosting our brew bar. Congratulations again to Sarah Girdzius of James Coffee Co. for coming in first place, Paul Ortiz from Seattle Coffee Works for coming in second, and Jonny Chesterfield from Village Cafe coming in third.
