No Pressure! Brew Competition

For the April batch of the Peoples Sessions series of extra-coffee-curricular events, we ran a non-pressurised brew competition.
Competitors (everyone that attended entered the comp) chose a brew method of their liking, or design, and prepared a cup from the same roast of Colombian CENCOIC coffee. We waited for the brews to do their thing, and then all sampled them (everyone was also a judge), noting their taste qualities — looking for the brew method the best exhibted the qualities of the Colombian.
Scores were toted up, and the top 3 brews and brewers (have I over-used those terms yet in this post?!) went into a final round, where they reproduced their method, and then blind-judged their own and each others’ cup. Winning the comp with his standard cupping method, was our own Zayd Olaad, who took home a Hario Syphon for his skills.
A massive thanks to everyone who showed up on that cold night, and enjoyed a great evening of coffee exploration and geekery!
