Barista Nation is one of our absolute favorite events for coffee professionals—as it hops from city to city, country to country, Barista Nation brings together the local coffee community to share in the expertise of visiting professionals from around the world, play on the latest, coolest new equipment, discuss industry trends, throwdown some killer lattes, and have a big old party.

In depth discussions on the latest industry trends are the order of the day at Barista Nation Los Angeles, shown in this photo from last year's Barista Nation L.A.

The Barista Nation model—which is one day, totally free, all about education and relationship-building—is the most pure and transparent around. We love it.

Barista Nation brings together some of the most respected people in the coffee industry, as it did at last year's Barista Nation LA, when Heather Perry and Mike Phillips (above) led a discussion.
