The upcoming Los Angeles Coffee Festival, taking place from November 8 to 10 at Magic Box @ The Reef in Downtown LA, brings even more to enjoy than last year. 

It will feature not only exceptional coffee, but also incredible local food, cocktails, live music, art and film.

The three-day festival returns to LA and will include a wide variety of coffee vendors and other exciting brands including, but not limited to: Bluestone Lane, Black & White Coffee Roasters, Minor Figures, Califia Farms, Rishi Tea, Truth Coffee Roasting and so many more.

To highlight some talented coffee baristas the LA Coffee Festival will hold a competition called Coffee Masters.

Coffee Masters™, the fast-paced, multi-discipline global barista tournament, is making its West Coast debut at this year’s festival.

Previously taking place at the London and New York Coffee Festivals, 2019 will mark the first year the competition hits California.

Judged by a panel of industry figureheads, the fast-paced knockout battle format of Coffee Masters™ will see 16 baristas showcase their skills head-to-head across a broad range of disciplines: The Cupping, The Brewing, The Latte Art, The Order and The Signature Drink, with The Espresso Blend being included for those who successfully make it to the Coffee Masters™ semi-finals.

As previously announced, Judges will include Anne Lunnel (Koppi Coffee), David Donde (Truth Coffee), Michelle Johnson (Coffee Manufactory / The Chocolate Barista), Ben Kaminsky and Bronwen Serna (Counter Culture LA / 2004 US Barista Champion).

The competition will be MC’d by Erika Vonie (Trade Coffee) and Lem Butler (Black & White Coffee Roasters). 

For those who are coffee drinkers, but don’t consider themselves enthusiasts, or those hoping to discover new and exciting coffees, there are many activities to educate and excite everyone.

The Lab program will be making its return, featuring an exciting line-up of interactive demonstrations, education workshops, talks and tastings from industry experts including The NoMad Hotel’s Ryan Bailey and Devocion’s Maya Albert.

The Coffee Music Project and Coffee Art Projects will once again have a notable presence, while the Coffee Art Project – Film Edition will be taking place in the festival’s Movie Room.
