It’s worth noting that next week there will be a barista competition in Las Vegas. In the Arizona Coffee Forum there is a debate brewing about this event. Primarily because there is little awareness about the event.

I’ll get to the facts:

February 25, 2008: SWRBC Judges Certification Workshop
February 26-27, 2008: Southwest Regional Barista Competition

Hosted By: International Las Vegas Restaurant Show
Location: Internationl Las Vegas Coffee & Tea Expo, Las Vegas, Nevada
