Ultimate Barista Challenge USA
The Ultimate Barista Challenge® is an action packed competition where baristi, someone who professionally prepares coffee, compete in a dueling stage of identical espresso stations to shake, not stir, their espresso cocktails, to prepare beautiful caffe latte art, blend espresso frappe and brew the best they have. Each Barista has a tight 10 minutes to prepare drinks in each category and serve to a discerning professional tasting judges panel comprised of coffee specialists, trainers, food writers, chefs or sommeliers before a live audience to win the right to Challenge the reigning champion and in turn become "The Ultimate Barista".
The challenge takes place at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo.
