OK, the prize for the coolest new name for a coffee contest, in my book, has to be Brew Fight Club. Founded and organized by Amnaj Bholsangngam of Chimney Coffee in L.A., and Kian Abedini of Compelling & Rich Roasters, also in L.A., Brew Fight Club, Battle: Chemex takes place TONIGHT at Chimney Coffee House, 1100 North Main St., Los Angeles.
Competitors should check in at 6:30 p.m., and brewing will start promptly at 7 p.m. Want to compete? Just email email@example.com, or check out the website, www.brewfightclub.com.
“Anyone is eligible, so long as they are competing with a coffee the shop they’re representing is offering that day,” Kian tells us.
The prizes? $100 cash and a year’s subscription to Barista Magazine.
Here’s how it will go down, according to Kian:
The first Brew Fight Club event was a huge success. The Battle? Kalita.
