US Coffee Championships Preliminaries
We are proud to be a 2019-2020 US Coffee Championships Preliminaries host this year featuring the Barista, Brewers Cup, and Coffee in Good Spirits categories, September 6-8, 2019 in Richmond, Virginia.
The US Coffee Championships is a competition series for coffee professionals competing in one or more of five categories including the U.S. Barista Championship, U.S. Brewers Cup, U.S. Cup Tasters Championship, U.S. Coffee in Good Spirits Championship, and U.S. Roaster Championship.
US Coffee Championships Preliminaries are community driven events hosted throughout the US to offer competitors the chance to compete regionally for guaranteed bids for regional qualifying events for each year's national championship.
Due to Richmond's central location, the event will draw competitors from a wide swath of the nation. With this in mind, we look forward to showcasing Richmond's vibrant coffee community on a national stage. There are plenty of opportunities for local coffee professionals who are not competing, and the coffee loving community at large to get involved and participate in the weekend-long event, from volunteering or judging, to attending side events and parties, to just being a spectator.
