The application deadline to compete at the Coffee Masters tournament is August 20th. Competitors enter by submitting an original video, 1-2 minutes in length, documenting the creation of a new and hopefully delicious coffee drink. Complete details and entry information is available here. This year’s cash prize is $5000.

We’ll know more soon about this season’s judges, hosts, and cast of competitors as summer 2017 steams on. For now, here’s some of our favorite videos from past events. Good luck, all you entrants out there, and we hope to see you in New York.
