Coffee Masters comes to New York City

We are thrilled to announce that Coffee Masters, the fast-paced, multi-disciplinary barista competition launched at The London Coffee Festival 2015 is coming to New York City.


Sponsored by leading US artisan roaster Counter Culture Coffee, Coffee Masters NYC will follow the same format as London, with six challenging disciplines that test the barista’s knowledge and skill as they compete for the prestigious Coffee Master title and a $5,000 prize.


This knockout competition will see baristas showcase their skills across a broad range of diciplines throughout the three days of the festival: Cupping, Brewing, Latte Art, The Order Challenge, The Signature Drink and The Espresso Blend.

But hurry – applications close on August 14th 2015.
