Portland Smokes Seattle in Coffee Competition

Seattle Weekly's coffee/gluten free columnist Rose Tosti was a judge at the just concluded NW Regional Barista Competition and Brewers Cup, and compared Portland(the winner) to Seattle(the loser): PDX showed up in our state, rolling three or four rows of spectators deep, with the hashtag #TacomaByStorm already set for all their Tweeting... But seriously? The Portlanders had t-shirts, and signs, and obnoxious levels of noise any time one of their own took the stage. There was jumping, and hugging, and high-fiving, and altogether entirely too much Bro-fection for a non-sporting event." [Seattle Weekly]
