USBC Alternative

Postby Ryan Mason on Tue Feb 24, 2009 1:16 pm

Get excited!

If you were at Coffee Fest Chicago, you probably already know. Roast Coffee Company is holding our second annual Barista Jam Friday, March 6th at 5:00pm. This will be THE alternative to the USBC. Since it is happening the same weekend, we will be streaming it live in the café.

Schedule of events includes:

5:00pm – Meet and greet with industry professionals

6:00pm – Coffee Cupping with coffees from 49th Parallel, Anodyne Coffee, Johnson Brothers, Novo Coffee, Ritual, and Victrola.

6:30pm – Home Coffee Brewing Seminar

7:30pm – Latte Art Throwdown

If it all works, we will have two Zocca’s side-by-side….one 2 group Linea and one 3 group FB-70. It will be head-to-head competition, with a losers bracket on the second machine. Five-dollar buy in and, depending how many people show, cash prize for first, second, and third place. Our friend, Terry Z, has graciously donated an awesome custom tamper for the winner!

If that’s not enough, Barista Magazine is sending over some issues and perhaps some T-shirts. Four Barrel Coffee will be our guest espresso for the night.

Check out the newest issue of Barista Magazine (page 22) for a write-up on the jam. We will also have information on our website so keep an eye out there. We will also have T-shirts for sale at the event printed by Ink Designs. I’ll post a pic of the shirt so if anyone wants one, go ahead and PM me and we’ll send one out.

Also, if you want to pre-order a T-Shirt, send me a PM. I'm more interested in printing t's for the ladies. I'd like to print them on a women's fitted versus a guy's shirt. Ya know, just trying to get some shirts for the women to wear...

The front graphic is the Milwaukee skyline with the rosetta as Lake Michigan. And, of course, all the sponsors on back. Pretty f'ing rad if you ask me.

I love it! Ryan, I just wish we could all be in two places at once. Great job putting this together, and I'll be excited to hear about it!

And yes, barista mags and t-shirts for giveaways are on the way to you!

Have a blast,
Sarah
