Get Ready! USCC Prelims are coming to the LAB: Introducing our Barista Competitors!
August 5, 2019, by Zoey Thorson
In case you missed out on the Brewer’s Cup Post… The U.S. Coffee Championships are 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.
What are these competitions about?
At the U.S. CoffeeChamps Barista Prelims, competitors will have 7 minutes to make espressos and milk beverages (from a chosen coffee provided by Royal NY) for 2 sensory judges. competitors are judged on not only the taste of their drinks but, the presentation, accuracy of their tasting descriptors and their technical skills as well!
We here at Royal NY are excited to have the opportunity to host one of the 2020 preliminary events and start the journey for a competitor to potentially win the World Championship!
If you are interested in attending, please register via our Lab Calendar.
