Welcome to the Richmond, Virginia US Coffee Championships Prelims hosted by Blanchard's Coffee!

October 7th - 9th

We're excited to welcome coffee friends from throughout the US to join us in Richmond, Virginia for a weekend of coffee competition in the Barista, Brewers Cup, and Coffee in Good Spirits categories.

In addition to competition, there will be events, throwdowns, coffee shop crawls, educational opportunities, and of course, parties to occupy your time. Richmond's coffee scene is rich, diverse, and worth exploring, so come ready to get caffeinated, make new friends, and maybe go home a champion!
