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.
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.
OK, gush-fest over: I’m really trying to use this space to tell you to hustle and register for the Barista Nation Los Angeles event taking place on September 30, because registration closes on Monday!
Highlights of this Barista Nation L.A. events:
• Keynote by 2008 US Barista Champ Kyle Glanville, and 2012, 2013 US Barista Championship runner-up Charles Babinski, who own and operate one of the most talked about new coffee companies in the country, G&B and Go Get ‘Em Tiger
