Kansas City’s coffee scene is an ever growing and ever changing. We’ve talked to industry’s veterans, who have seen this industry grow in Kansas City the past 10 years. Kansas City just hosted the Big Central Regional Barista Competition in January 2013, the regional champion was Pete Licata of Parisi Coffee in Kansas City. In that competition, we saw a lot of young baristas competing from Kansas City, who definitely brought a lot of passion, and believe have taken our coffee scene to another level. We also like to get a little nerdy in the industry, so every once in a while we will post experiments that we do.
We will take you to the coffee shops, roasteries, and other coffee events and enjoy the beautiful caffeinated drink we love; as well as the baristas who train so hard to do what they do best.
