PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Competing baristas prepare for
competition at the big Central Regional
U.S. Barista Competition in Kansas City
(January 18-20.)

Baristas around the country are
rehearsing and practicing to compete
in front of judges, to earn their spot
at the U.S. Nationals.

Here, at Kaldi's Coffee in St. Louis,
 barista entrants learn how to perfect their performance
on stage, under the lights (in front of 7 judges) . . .
15-minutes to prepare 4 perfect espressos,
4 perfect cappuccinos, and 4 original "signature drinks"
(a flavored concoction of their design, no alcohol.)

15 minutes sounds like plenty of time.
(It isn't!)
