The U.S. Coffee Championships is a series of three events celebrating specialty coffee: the U.S. CoffeeChamps Preliminaries, the U.S. CoffeeChamps Qualifying Events, and the U.S. Coffee Championships (Produced by the Specialty Coffee Association.) The U.S. Coffee Champions will then move on to the World Coffee Championships in Boston or Berlin later this year. There, they will represent the United States amongst a field of 65 sanctioned National Bodies all vying for the title of World Champion.

We here at Royal NY are super excited to have the opportunity to host one of the preliminary events and start the journey for a competitor to potentially win the World Championship.  This preliminary event will consist of three competitions: Barista, Brewer’s Cup and Taster’s Cup.  Top ranking competitors in each of these individual competitions will be guaranteed a spot in the U.S. Coffee Champs Qualifying Event.

More information about the individual competitions can be found by following these links:
