Round 1 Results

23 07 2009

The first round was an absolutely packed house, with nearly 80 people crowding into the Square Mile Roastery to watch the action!

16 baristas, from London, Brighton and Reading went head to head pouring in 6oz cups for cheers of the crowd who decided who won each round.  The crowd were awesome!  So noisy, and they picked a great winner!

Results:

1st – David “El Grifo” Gibbons – 10 points

2nd – James “Big Jim” Phillips – 6 points

3rd – Neil “Number 1” Le Bihan – 4 points

4th – Gwilym “WBC ’09” Davies – 2 points

Those that made it through the first round also got 1 point.  The best place to see how people are progressing is on the League Table page
