Two employees and the co-owner of Olympia Coffee Roasting Co. won awards at two recent coffee events: the Northwest Regional Brewers Cup and a Regional Barista Competition.
Competing at the Brewers Cup, Olympia Coffee employee Honor Forte won first place, while employee, Alex Choppin, brought home a second place award. Both were judged on their manual brewing methods, using a pour-over drip coffee style.
Co-owner Sam Schroeder, meanwhile, won fourth place at the barista competition. He was judged on serving espressos, cappuccinos and a drink of his choice.
Meet all three at a gathering set for 10 a.m. Friday at Olympia Coffee's downtown location at 108 Cherry St. N.E.
They will explain their competition routines and share free samples of their brewed coffees, according to a news release.
