Throwdown Rules

Baristas compete in a bracketed head-to-head format. The winning design between two competitors is determined by a panel of three judges that take into account each pour's contrast, definition, and symmetry. Any spilling leads to a disqualification. The winner moves on to the next round. Each round has specific guidelines on what a competitor must pour:

Round 1: Hearts

Round 2: Tulips

Round 3: Rosettas

Round 4: Barista's choice

Each tournament will yield a first, second, and third place winner.
