North West Regional Barista Competition Rescheduled
We wanted to inform you that the NWBRC will not be held in conjunction with Coffee Fest Seattle in September 2011. Both Coffee Fest and SCAA have worked hard this past week to work through all the planning details and, in the process, discovered that production costs would be much higher than we originally anticipated. Coffee Fest worked especially hard in trying to accommodate our needs, but since their agreements for Seattle were already in place, there wasn’t much room to move this year. However, we do see the potential for future events to take place in partnership.
As much as we would have liked to hold the NWRBC in conjunction with CoffeeFest this year, we recognize this change offers a bit more planning time for competitors, which we heard from some, would be a good thing.
We've definitely taken note of the comments about preparation time and will do our best to make schedule announcements further in advance in the future. We'll inform you of new dates and venue as soon as we have them secured. Thank you for your understanding.
