If you’ve ever been to a Barista League competition, then you know these folks know how to throw an event. Did you watch the Game Show Network when you were a kid? Do you like drinkin’ a beer with your coffee buds after a long day of competitions and seminars? If you answered yes to either of these questions, The Barista League has got an event for you coming up in Boston.
“This April The Barista League is headed to Boston to host a fast-paced, coffee-focused trivia game presented by Ally Coffee and Pacific Foods Barista Series,” a press release states. “Hosts Lem Butler & Erika Vonie will wrangle eight teams of superstar coffee pros competing to answer questions with the most popular answers—determined by the crowd of the SCA Expo!” Pretty much think if all your coffee faves competed in teams on Family Feud, working together to figure out what the most popular answers to coffee-related questions would be, and you’ll have a great idea of what this night will be like!
The event, which will be held on April 12 at Middle East Restaurant & Night Club, will be free and open to all. It is hosted in partnership with Ally Coffee, Pacific Foods Barista Series, and us over here at Barista Magazine!
