The 2020 US Coffee Championships Qualifying Rounds came to a close on Sunday at Dillanos Coffee in Sumner, Washington. Half of the national field was decided this weekend at the first of the two Qualifying Events (the second happening next month in Nashville).

20 baristas competed on Day Two (included three from yesterday due to a technical mishap) and Sprudge was on deck to capture every single one with Lead Photographer Elizabeth Chai and roving social media reporter Joshua Littlefield. Take a glimpse at all of the competitors from Day Two here in Sumner.

Sprudge Media Network’s coverage of the 2020 US Coffee Championships Sumner Qualifier is presented by Cafe Imports, Acaia, IKAWA, Pacific Barista Series, Bellwether, and Baratza
