Coffee Fest to host Western Region America’s Best Espresso Competition


Coffee Fest 2015 will be in Portland, Oregon this year and will feature several competitions ranging from latte art to best espresso.

Coffee Fest has been serving the specialty coffee and tea market since 1992.

Coffee Fest is heading to the Oregon Convention Center from 23 – 25 October, where it will host the Western Region America’s Best Espresso Competition.

Twenty-eight coffee roasters will have 10 minutes to brew their best espresso shots from one of the four-espresso machines onsite.

Competitors prepare three espressos, which are then judged by a select panel of three judges. The competitors will go head-to-head until the field is paired to 16 contestants, then eight, then four and ultimately the 2015 champion will be crowned
