2018 US Brewers Cup Champion Becca Woodard On Coffee and Competition

2018 US Brewers Cup Champion Becca Woodard On Coffee and Competition

Thank you! I was really dead set on using the Walküre brewer from the first time I used it, it was the only brewer that held onto that aroma and gave me the most balanced brew of that coffee I could possibly find. Unfortunately, it was very hard to brew three of them consecutively in under ten minutes — it would have required me to be focusing on my brewing for the entire time. In brainstorming with my team, we had quite a few thoughts on how to pour three kettles at once — and it all came together through a combination of each idea. By hanging the kettles by their handles and keeping them aligned using the wooden box that one of my co-workers built, I was able to efficiently brew all three cups at once with minimal effort. It also allowed me to focus more of my energy and attention on the judges and relaying my message to them.
