Save the date because the Barista Battle Royale is back and its even bigger than last year, not least because we’ll be having the Big BTBirthday Bash as well.

Think you know your beans and machines? Go dippy over drip? Or just a slightly unhealthy obsession with all things barista?

Then why don’t you come to Paintworks, Bristol and watch the South West’s top barista battle it out to win their place in the UK Barista Championship and the UK Brewers Cup finals. Entrants prepare for months in advance; from sourcing beans, cracking the right roast, to perfecting all the skills assessed during their routines.

This is no walk in the park. Open and FREE to all coffee enthusiasts, the event takes place at Paintworks, from 9am-5.30pm on 14 February for UKBC and 15 February for the Brewers Cup.


On 14 February, once the UKBC heat winner is announced we will be cracking open the DJ booth, firing up the pizza oven and opening the bar for cocktails and beers. This party is the first in a series of events to celebrate Beyond the Bean turning 20, we know, we don’t look it! With a few other BTB party treats up our sleeves and some coffee related antics from Bewleys, we are sure it’s going to be a night not to be missed. The party is also FREE but ticketed, so register now to secure your spot on the dance floor.
