The USBC and Brewers Cup competitions are regional Specialty Coffee events designed to highlight the craft of the barista and hand crafted coffee beverage production. Some of the most talented baristas in the country will be out in full force during regional barista competitions and showing off what makes coffee preparation a unique art form. We hope you choose to participate as a competitor, Judge, Volunteer or spectator today!
These regional coffee events are free and open to the public to attend, so be sure to tell your customers, friends and anyone who wants to witness a culinary demonstration of skill with coffee & espresso! Those attending will be able to taste coffees made by talented baristas, engage with other people involved in the coffee community, and see the latest coffee in coffee brewing equipment, like the Nuova Simonelli Aurelia II espresso machine and Mahlkoenig K-30 Grinders. Being there means that you will get to watch as the 2013 South West Regional Barista and Brewers Cup Champions take their place in coffee history and make it one step closer to the National Championship.
Attending the three-day competition is also the perfect opportunity to build your own personal relationships within the barista and coffee community as well as meet industry professionals planning to attend The 25th Annual Specialty Coffee Event. The 2013 Expo will be held April 11-14, 2013 in Boston, MA! Attend the BGA and USBC party and connect with other BGA members as some of the country's best baristas brew coffee.
