US Barista Championship This Weekend

The United States Barista Championship is taking place this weekend! If you’re in the Portland, OR, area and want to see the bright and the beautiful of the American barista scene compete against each other, now’s your chance.

The regional winners from over the past couple of months will be automatic semi-finalists in the competition, but dozens of other baristas will be throwing their cappuccino in the ring for the opportunity to compete in the World Barista Championship that takes place at the SCAA’s annual exposition in Atlanta, GA, this April.

In addition to the competition itself, which will take place beginning tomorrow, March 5th, and culminate with an awards ceremony on Sunday, March 8th, there are tons of fun events like a bike tour of Portland’s cafes, a welcome party and even a barista prom (backed by live band karaoke — egad!)
