#NashCoffeeMadness FINALE [insert fanfare]

The first ever #NashCoffeeMadness has come to a close. [awwwww]

Thank you SO MUCH for participating -- voting, filling out brackets, reading our posts -- you guys are the best. We were pleasantly surprised at the voter turnout!

Without further ado...our winner of #NashCoffeeMadness 2k15 is...after a VERY close race...


[insert more fanfare]

We couldn't be prouder of all our shops that competed -- they all performed admirably. CREMA is a Nashville treasure and we are proud to name it our winner.

Oh, and one more thing...our bracket champion! Drumroll, please...

...is BLAKE T.!

It was so, so very close. Nicole P. almost pulled it out, but as the last round is worth more points and Blake called the winner, he managed to squeeze by and claim victory.

Blake, e-mail us with your mailing address (and preferred coffee roast level) and we will send you a prize pack from the winning shop, CREMA!

We can't wait to do this again next year. Especially since there will probably be 16 new shops to try between now and then.
