Aww you can't tell us how well you've understood the rules and then just how well you've got the date wrong. Doesn't work that way...

Lol thanks for remembering me. Looks like I fought for my right to compete frivously. My WiFi was down and for some reason I can't access the app using phone 4G. Any solutions! Good luck to all those who entered.

Just realised @M_H_S isn't in either group.

Not long to go now :)

 

Looks like the jar of marmalade will be making its way around the 6th placers to share. I suggest we send it to anyone but Snakehips first that way there’s at least a slim chance there’ll be a smidgen left in the bottom of the jar for the next recipient.

Good evening ladies, gentlemen and forum members. It gives me inordinate pleasure, as Chair, Secretary, Presenter and Rules Manager of the inaugral CFUK Christmas Pour-Down 2018, to announce the winner.

 

First up though, thank you to our generous sponsors - @Bella Barista and @Foundrycoffeeroasters.com for donating the prizes. A kilo of Foundry beans will go to the overall winner and a kilo of single origin beans from the Bella Barista Roastery to be split between the next 4 places. A HUGE big Thank You to both roasters!

Thanks to @Glenn for agreeing to the staging of this competition and technical advice where required :)

Thanks to everyone for taking part. To @ashcroc for keeping me straight. To Captcha for some extra brain training in between posts. To the latte art pourers, supporters and hangers-on for joining in the banter - and a big thank you for the voters too. Sometimes you CAN count on the public to vote for the right winner* ;)

 

The standards were high in some cases. Promising in others. And downright pathetic in others, weren't they, @Snakehips. It is, of course, the taking part that counts (plus the winning, as I know only too well having not quite recovered from the recent upset when I didn't win the forum raffle the other day.)

However without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to proclaim the winner. With her outstanding pour gaining 15 votes, is @mmmatron :) Huge congratulations and a hug for her :)

 

The 4 runners-up are @Craig-R872 with 13 votes, @joey24dirt with 11 votes, MildredM with 7, and @hotmetal with 6 votes - didn't they do well! Pats on the backs all round :)

 

If everyone wants to pm me their addresses I can pass them on to the two roasters for their prizes to be sent direct in due course.

 

Well done everyone! Keeeeeeep pouring :) :)

 

*This is a reference to SCD which you won't get if you didn't watch it last night.

Aw fab. Well done @mmmatron for taking the win, and well done to everyone else for getting involved. It’s been a really fun experience.

 

Thanks to the one and only @MildredM for doing what she does best. You’re a superstar.

Woo! Well done mmmatron! Well done everyone else, and cheers Mildred, Glenn et al for organising it. This is getting like an Oscars speech... I'd like to thank the cow who generously donated her milk for my pours...

 

It's been a while since I had beans from Bella so just the ticket! Can't believe I've actually won something with my slightly dodgy pours. Cheers team!
