For the hand full of you out there who haven't heard, we are the new host for the Northeast Regional Barista Competition. What that means is a mess of barista will come into town to compete for top honors.
Beyond the competition, and there will be plenty, we felt strongly our local community needed this. The desire to compete has been there the last few years but the costs and distance were too great for many locally to attend. After the turnout for the Barista Jam @ ERC, I expect a very large turnout of local barista and first time competitors. We are patiently looking forward to it and working hard to settle the location.
