Join us on Thursday, November 7th for the Latte Art Throwdown Barista Competition at Kona Coffee & Tea from 6 pm to 9 pm. The Barista Latte Art Throwdown competition is a fun, fast-paced event that showcases local barista’s as they work magic in their cup of 100% Kona Coffee. The first place barista wins a round trip Alaska Airlines flight to the mainland, donated by Alaska Airlines.

Door prize drawings will happen throughout the evening, plus beer, wine, coffee, and food will be available for purchase. This event is open to the public for spectating with a festival button ($5). To compete, there is a $5 registration fee and you must also have a festival button ($5 for entrance into festival events).

This year, Alaska Airlines will be sponsoring a round trip flight to the mainland for the 2019 Latte Art Champion! We encourage you to use this as an opportunity to represent Hawai`i’s coffee talent at one of the National or International Specialty Coffee competitions. If you choose this route, please feel free to use the PCR trainers and facility as your support in preparation for your competition.

Don’t forget to check out the Barista Training on Monday, November 4th, same place. Registration required.
