It’s Jam time again at Roast!!!

Get excited!

If you were at Coffee Fest Chicago, you probably already know. Roast Coffee Company is holding our second annual Barista Jam Friday, March 6th at 5:00pm. This will be THE alternative to the USBC. Since it is happening the same weekend, we will be streaming it live in the café.

Schedule of events includes:

5:00pm – Meet and greet with industry professionals

6:00pm – Coffee Cupping with coffees from 49th Parallel, Anodyne Coffee, Johnson Brothers, Novo Coffee, Ritual, and Victrola.

6:30pm – Home Coffee Brewing Seminar

7:30pm – Latte Art Throwdown

If it all works, we will have two Zocca’s side-by-side….one 2 group Linea and one 3 group FB-70. It will be head-to-head competition, with a losers bracket on the second machine. Five-dollar buy in and, depending how many people show, cash prize for first, second, and third place. Our friend, Terry Z, has graciously donated an awesome custom tamper for the winner!

If that’s not enough, Barista Magazine is sending over some issues and perhaps some T-shirts. Four Barrel Coffee will be our guest espresso for the night.

Check out the newest issue of Barista Magazine (page 22) for a write-up on the jam. We will also have information on our website so keep an eye out there. We will also have T-shirts for sale at the event printed by Ink Designs. I’ll post a pic of the shirt so if anyone wants one, go ahead and PM me and we’ll send one out.
