South West Regional Barista Competition

by Franklin on March 6, 2011

Coffee Bean hosted the South West Regional Barista Competition on March 5, 2011.  I had the chance to check out the continuation of Round 1 at Siren Studios in Hollywood.  Baristas were set in front of a panel of judges.  Competitors created creative mixtures of coffee drinks — the baristas battled it out.

During the competition, free goody bags were given out ($5 dollar gift card to Coffee Bean).  Also, Lake Street Creamery and Buttermilk truck were there to satisfy hungry spectators.  Other non-competing baristas were there to make cappuccinos and serve drinks as well.  All in all, it was a successful event.  Check them out Sunday, March 6, 2011 for Round 2.

(Buttermilk Truck Post will come shortly.  In the mean time, check out the video of the competition.)
