Roast Coffee Company is please to announce our fourth annual Barista Jam! Please join us June 25th at 6pm at 2132 E. Locust St. Milwaukee, WI for some awesome coffees from some of the best and upcoming coffee companies. MadCap has committed coffee as has Anodyne. Invitations have been sent to a few others and if they all come through, it will be one of our most ambitious offerings yet! In addition, we are working with Rishi Tea to dispatch a tea expert to host a tea sampling. It’s sure to be a fun filled night!

As always, the Barista Jam will follow. For this, lets just say it will be team competition versus individual pours. You and your team will have to work together in order to win!

We’ll keep you updated as more news becomes available…

Just recieved a few more coffee confirmations!

Jeff at PT's is sending coffee our way and Aaron over at Paradise.

In addition, we're talking with our peeps to see if we can get a Trifecta to play with. It's a long shot, but we'll see..

Alright, everyone. Here are all the details:

This Friday, June 25th, is the Milwaukee Barista Jam, hosted by Roast Coffee Company. There is a full schedule, packed with some pretty amazing coffee and fun. Coffee will be arriving from around the country from some of coffee’s most progressive roasters. On the table, we will have coffees from:

Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co., Barefoot Coffee Roasters, Four Barrel Coffee, MadCap Coffee, Paradise Coffee Roasters, PT’s Coffee Roasting Co., Rishi Tea, and Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters.

There will be lots to play with…we will have an alternative brew bar set up with siphons, French presses, Auro presses, Chemexes, Harios, pour overs, and the coolest, the Bunn Trifecta. Additionally, we will be raffling off a year subscription to Barista Magazine and a year membership to the Barista Guild of America.

Finally, there will be a Barista Throwdown! Action will be a little different then in past events…we’ll be taking a page out of Octane’s playbook. The Throwdown will be team oriented, not just individual pours. You’ll work together with your team to win!

So come join us Friday stating around 5pm. We’ll be jamming well into the evening. Any and all are welcome to attend so we hope to see you there!

Schedule of events:

5:00pm - Meet and greet
6:00pm - Coffee tastings
7:30pm - Barista Jam!
