Description

U.S. Coffee Championships is caffeine-packed 3-day event, featuring final competitions to determine who will be named the U.S Coffee Champions. Coffee professionals from all over the United States competed in the CoffeeChamps Denver and Nashville events this season to qualify to compete to be crowned the US Champion in the Barista, Brewers, Roaster, and Cup Taster competitions. And, new this year, the Coffee in Good Spirits event joined the lineup to crown our first ever Coffee in Good Spirits U.S. Champion*. The champions from the U.S. will have the honor of representing the USA at the World Championships! Be sure to also check the Roaster Village, meet vendors in The Market, see brewing demonstrations, and taste competitor coffee in The Cafe. This, and so much more, is all included with your USCC Registration!

*For the first season of the U.S. Coffee in Good Spirits Championship, the U.S. Champion will not advance to WCIGS
