All Coffee, All Play: Chinatown’s Iron Barista May 15th


All is fair in coffee and play.

This Friday, daring and brave baristas will gather in Chinatown’s Bamboo Plaza for the second annual Los Angeles Iron Barista Championship.

Sponsored by Cafe Demitasse, Chimney Coffee and MC’d by LA Coffee Club this  evening will be prime time. Three judges – Joshua Lurie of Food GPS, Jolie Myers of KCRW and LA Weekly and yours truly – along with eight teams in total will go round for three rounds  of competition as they make drinks with unknown ingredients. Tasty!

For onlookers, what’s a coffee event without food trucks and vendors, which will be at the plaza including:

Currywurst Truck
Van Leeuwen Ice Cream
Vchos Truck
Empress Pavilion
Sugarbird Sweets & Teas
Mcfaddy Candy Co.
Cherry Hero Bar

May the best ‘coffee’ win.

See you in Chinatown!


Time: 6-9 p.m. Be there, the coffee sure will be.
