Thursday Night Throwdown, TNT, is a community building event.  Our goal is to come together once a month as coffee professionals and enthusiasts, of all different kinds, and share our mutual love for all things coffee.

TNT is held on the second Thursday of every month, rotating between several of the independently owned specialty coffee shops in the greater DC area.

The competition ranges in format (often bracket style), but is always $5 to enter, one latte to pour, winner takes the pot. TNT is the brainchild of our friends at Octane Coffee. They did an excellent job creating a space that breaks the barista, customer, roaster, barriers and brings people together. We were so inspired, we thought we’d bring the project to Washington, DC. Like Octane, we hope to meet new people, make new friends, and share our love for coffee.
