LA Coffee Club brings you the best of Barista Nation Los Angeles 2013, held at Curtis Coffee on September 29th.
It was a jam-packed day full of our favorite 3 “C-Words” – Coffee, Community and of course a little bit of friendly Competition – with a head to head latte art throw-down as well as some barista basketball.
“..I think the best coffee bars will take those new ideas and at least try them.. . and a lot of other coffee bars will get swept up in a frenzy and adopt stuff and not really know why. If you find yourself way down a path, doing stuff you don’t really understand – you need to go back and with a really earnest approach and challenge what you’re doing.”
