BEST BARISTAS
SHOW THEIR STUFF

Coffee baristas competed for top honors
in Kansas City, Missouri,
to earn the chance to attend the U.S. National
Barista Championship in Boston this April.

Each barista had 15 minutes to prepare and serve
12 espresso beverages in front of 7 judges.
They earn points for technical skills, precision,
creative presentation and of course taste!

Contestants were allowed to add their own
ingredients, roast their own beans,
create their own recipe (and story) . . .
and bring their own cheering section.

What a show!

  3. It must have been very exciting this competition! Your pictures tell so much! I can feel the atmosphere, the tension, the concentration and the sweet artistry of some of the participants. I like all the details you've noticed! My favourite are the empty bottles of milk!:D

    I like short and no sugar ... preferably if arabica coffee.
    Fancy? I prepared it in 1 minute!

    Kisses ... Rick, a hug.
