U.S. Barista Championship
February 20, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The United States Barista Championship (USBC) hosted by Espresso Supply, Inc., is a platform for baristas to enhance their espresso beverage making skills through an exciting and challenging competition. In 15 minutes, the barista must prepare and serve espressos, cappuccinos, and a personally designed signature beverage for four sensory judges; all while being assessed on their preparation abilities by two technical judges. The USBC is more than a competition; it’s a place to develop community and meet other coffee lovers from across the US. Throughout the year, baristas from all across the country compete in six regional competitions to qualify for this national event and the winner of the USBC will go on to represent the United States in the World Barista Championship at The SCAA Event in Seattle, WA on April 9-12.
