Coffee Face-Off

The US Barista Championship is happening this weekend in Portland, where baristas from across the country are converging to compete for the national title and the right to go on to represent the U.S. next month in Atlanta at the World Barista Championship. This is always a fun chance to see talented baristas show off some pretty impressive skills as they make espressos, cappuccinos and signature drinks, all under the watchful eyes of onlookers and judges. The event is free and open to the public, but if you can't make it in person, you can watch a live stream of the competition online by clicking here.
