Matcha Latte Throwdown

Ever Heard of a Matcha Latte Throwdown?

Ever heard of a matcha latte throwdown?

A latte throwdown is one of specialty coffee culture's most fun events!

Baristas gather after-hours to hang out and compete against each other to make the prettiest lattes you've ever seen! Matcha latte throwdowns aren't as common as the coffee kind, so we had a BLAST teaming up with our hometown BFFS Dune Coffee in Santa Barbara, California. We had a great night of competition! The Mizuba Matcha was flowing and the pours were intense! Sneak a peek at prime barista culture!


Huge congratulations to our winners!




Have you ever competed in a throwdown? Would you like Mizuba to host one at your coffee shop? Comment below!
