We can’t wait for Coffee Fest St. Louis May 30–June 1. You’ve probably heard that the city in Missouri is quickly becoming one of the most vibrant new coffee communities in the country, and we can’t wait to see that for ourselves. Check out the recent post we featured about coffeehouses in St. Louis.
What’s the most exciting part of any Coffee Fest event? The Latte Art Championship, of course! Coffee Fest’s latte art competitions are incredibly cool, totally thrilling, and way popular. They happen at every Coffee Fest event in the United States, and recently, there was even one held in Tokyo! Look for Barista Mag publisher Ken Olson’s article about that event in the June+July issue.
But I can’t help but be overcome with delight at the thought of the Coffee Fest St. Louis Latte Art Championship. The reason (besides the obvious)? We’ve never done it in St. Louis! That means the baristas working at all of the city’s amazing cafes will have a chance to step up and try for the win for the very first time!
