At “Throwdown for Oslo,” a latte art competition, proceeds will be raised to benefit Oslo Coffee Roasters. Why? A fire ripped through Oslo’s Bedford Ave. coffee bar, destroying equipment and the space back in January. Nobody was injured, however this was a significant blow to Oslo’s community. At the competition, baristas from more than a dozen coffee companies across New York City will face off against each other. The grand prize winner will receive a nel drip set and a Blue Bottle tote, the runner-up will receive a copy of “The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee.”
Suggested donation is $10.
