Dear Coffee Friends and Fanatics,
You are cordially invited to the Kaldi's Summer Barista Jam on June 26th!!
This one day jam will focus on the basics of intense espresso evaluation, brewing and roasting demos, and barista techniques. We will also have a special guest joining us, Ellie Hudson-Matuszak, Vice President of Training and Operations at Coffee Solutions. Ellie is active in the Specialty Coffee Industry and has enjoyed success in the United States Barista Competition as a Regional Champion and as a two-time USBC finalist.
The fantastic coffee sessions will close with a Happy Hour Barista Challenge along with a special performance by Via Dove, local rock heroes.
Registration is only $15 in advance (or $20 at the door) and includes free breakfast, lunch, and happy hour, plus a sweet event t-shirt.
We'll also be hosting the first 2009 Midwest BGA Chapter meeting during lunch. Topics to be covered will be benefits of membership, upcoming events, and creating new barista events and trainings throughout the midwest.
We hope to see you on the 26th!!
Kaldi's Coffee/Midwest BGA Chapter Rep.
