USBC-2013-sponsor-trademark-copy-620x597We are pleased to announce that Baratza is a national sponsor of the 2013 SCAA Regional Barista and Brewers Cup Competitions.
The Season has started! Yes it’s that time again when barista people across the country are busy practicing day and night for the upcoming SCAA regional competitions. The ultimate goal is making it to the National Championships at the annual SCAA event in Boston, happening April 11-14, 2013.

From what we hear from past competitions, there is much learning and deeper appreciation about the role of coffee preparation, and the learning journey can be as rewarding as the big win! There are two components to the Championships – the Barista Competition, featuring espresso based drinks, and the Brewers Cup focused only on manual brew. Baratza is providing grinders for the top three finalists of the RBC and Brewers Cup.

The Championships have got off to an unfortunate start as the NERBC in Atlantic City had to be postponed as it was scheduled the week that Sandy came thundering on to the east coast. Organizers made a wise choice in postponing it. Health and safety of all involved is most important! A revised date has not yet been announced.
