Have you ever thought about joining the ranks of the competition barista but weren’t sure if it was for you? How do I pick a coffee? What should my theme be? How much time and money will it cost to compete? Am I even going to enjoy it? If this is you, Counter Culture is here to help. Tomorrow, November 1st at 1:00pm PST (4:00pm EST), all Counter Culture training centers in the United States will host Pro Tips: A Guide To Barista Competition and Brewers Cup.

Taking place in 12 cities across the country—Asheville, Atlanta, the Bay Area, Boston, Charleston, Chicago, Dallas (happening at The Common Desk in Deep Ellum), Durham, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, and Washington DC—each Pro Tips event will feature ”local experts giving us the rundown on current competition structure, scoresheets, and the tips they’ve picked up over the years,” per the Facebook event page.

Participants will then be able to submit questions to “former champions and current judges from both competitions” who will answer them over a livestreamed Q&A.
