The Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) and the Barista Guild of America (BGA) are hosting the US Coffee Championships in Long Beach. Competitions will cover Barista, Brewers Cup, Cup Tasters, Latte Art, Roasters Choice and Coffee of the Year. It’s a huge event and winners will go on to compete at the World Events. Baratza is delighted to continue as a prize sponsor for the event (Grinders FTW!). Kyra Kennedy and Joyce Klassen will be there to see the competitions, have fun and connect with our friends and partners in Specialty Coffee!
“Le Carnaval du Café is an educational and collegial coffee event hosted by the Collaborative Coffee Source, held at the La Bellevilloise Arts & Culture Center in the heart of Paris. It is an opportunity to get an insight to what is happening behind the scenes of High End Specialty Coffee Trade today.”
Our Norwegian Importer, Silje Bjerkås of KAFFAbutikk will be attending and working on the Collaborative Brew Bar. “The brew bar is a pretty unique and cool thing, roasteries from all of the world bring their coffees – but all coffees are sourced by Collaborative. At the brew bar they get to share roastprofiles , and brewing methods and serve it to the attendees during the event.” We are delighted that Silje will be grinding these wonderful coffees on a Forté-BG! #LCDC15

We understand the need for a superior grind that matches the quality, flavor, and roast of your finest beans. Our grinders support an extensive range of brew methods.
Baratza designs the grinders in Seattle. They are built in Taiwan, with precision burrs from Europe, and distributed through an ever expanding worldwide network.
Never happy with the status quo, Baratza unceasingly advances the design and functionality of our products. Our innovations include:a macro/micro grind adjust system to dial in the perfect grind, a Portaholder to grind hands-free into a portafilter, or the grind by weight system.
To a coffee professional, there are few tools as important as a grinder. The grinder is the tuning fork for the extraction. Baratza has raised the bar in not only manufacturing excellent grinders, but doing so on a scale and at a cost that brings excellence to a larger group of people and companies.
They are bridging the gap between the Coffee Professionals and the Coffee Enthusiasts. I see Baratza grinders in homes, shops, labs, and travel kits. Being the Director of Education at Café Imports means that I need a grinder that I can rely on, is efficient, grinds extraordinarily well, travels easy, and has a great team of people with excellent customer service in case there is ever an issue. Baratza has provided me with this.
