The Ultimate Barista Challenge was back at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo. We watched as professional baristi face challengers on the exhibition floor where they prepared their signature espresso beverages for a panel of discerning judges. There was a showdown of three flights of espresso frappe, espresso cocktails and beautiful café latte art.
In addition to watching the action unfold you learned the value of fine espresso and coffee on your menu, secret tips to drive profitability into your offerings and tips to impress your customers.
What is a barista? A barista is someone who demonstrates their passion and knowledge for coffee for customer's everyday in cafes, restaurants and coffee bars around the world.
