The baristas will have two hours to create their beverage, and all coffees and extraction methods are fair game. The nonalcoholic drinks will be judged on taste, consistency and creativity. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place competitors.

The St. Louis coffee community will be well-represented, with competitors participating from Kaldi’s in both St. Louis and Kansas City, as well as Blueprint Coffee, RISE Coffee House, Sump Coffee, Wayfarer Coffee Co., Goshen Coffee and Comet Coffee.

In addition to samples of the competing coffee beverages, they’ll also have food, drinks and music. The competition starts at 7pm.
