A very special thank you to everyone who came out to pour and support the #SlayerTNT at Coastal Kitchen.  We got to mingle with restaurant guests, compete and give away hourly door prizes to our mixed audience of eaters, drinkers and passers by.

There’s a new and wonderful movement happening in non-coffee bars as the focus shifts to a quality coffee program. Not only are they choosing to purchase phenomenal brewing equipment, they are additionally supporting with in depth coffee preparation training. If you find yourself in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, pop into Coastal Kitchen for an exceptional brunch and coffee.

Enjoy the photo recap of our incredible collaborative event!

Coastal Kitchen’s customized Slayer Espresso with Claro Walnut wood accents, Grained Black Nickel & Super Polished Xs was a head turner to say the least.

Traditional rocks glasses left their old fashion purposes to showcase the marriage of milk and coffee in the formulation of latte art. Downers to ensue.

Not pictured, the Coastal Kitchen crew who killed the nights flow by simply taking care of almost everything you could imagine. From running delightful nibbles, filling glasses, to hosting the entire Seattle barista community for the evening…you know who you are and we love you for all your hard work!

Our events would be little less glamorous and absolutely less rewarding without the generous support of our sponsors!

Thanks to the generous donations of our sponsors   Baratza Grinders, Acaia Scales,  Espresso Parts and Caffe Vita, special prizes went to the top three competitors along with door prizes every half hour to all guests and patrons.
