National Coffee Day Throwdown - September 29th

--- UPDATE - Due to weather, the National Coffee Day Throwdown will be held at our West Side location - 227 Winter Ave NW Grand Rapids, MI 49504 ---


National Coffee Day is less than 24 hours away, and we’re gearing up for the ArtPrize Latte Art Throwdown in downtown Grand Rapids! The grand prize? The coveted La Marzocco – Linea Mini! We’re excited to welcome baristas from all around the Midwest in this single elimination bracket style throwdown. It’s an event worthy of National Coffee Day!

Linea Mini

We’ve partnered with Food 4 Farmers, a non profit organization that works to ensure food security through sustainable solutions for coffee farmers and their families. Every raffle ticket enters you for a chance to win a free class in our educational facility, The Foundry, and gives you a shot at pouring your own latte art. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Food 4 Farmers to help combat “seasonal hunger”.

Festivities start at 7pm, with the first pour at 8pm.

And while you're here, be sure to check out the Official Coffee of ArtPrize 8 - Ethiopia Ayehu, as both a light roast and a dark roast!

Want To Compete?
Are you a barista looking to compete? Registration is free, but space is very limited! We’ll open in person sign-ups at 7pm in Rosa Parks Circle, so if you haven’t secured your spot through our social media contest, be sure to arrive early!

And a huge thanks to everyone who has come together to make this event possible.
