The Great Plains Barista Jam!

is coming March 11-13, 2011!!!!

The Nebraska Coffee Association is working with Cultiva Coffee Roasting Co. (and others) to organize our very own Great Plains Barista Jam!

It will take place March 11-13th. We are still putting the details together but here’s what we have so far. We will offer classes on Roasting, Cupping, Basic Barista Skills, Tea and Espresso Equipment Maintenance. There will be fun events including a beer tasting with Modern Monks Brewery and a Latte Art Throwdown!

We are so excited that Chris Schooley is confirmed as the instructor for the Roasting class. You can learn more about him HERE.

The other instructors have not been confirmed yet but check back because we will be updating this blog as soon as we have more information.

There is a small fee to attend classes. You can purchase an all-weekend pass for $75 or purchase individual classes for $30/per class(the Tea and Espresso Equipment Maintenance classes are $10). You must register in order to be able to attend classes. There is limited space so registration is first come first serve. Register by downloading this form: Register for Great Plains Barista Jam and mailing it to the address on the form.

We are looking for all the help we can get. If you would like to help by sponsoring or volunteering please leave a comment or you can contact me at

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at this same email address.
