USBC Eastern Conference Standings—The Final Leaderboard


The Eastern Conference Barista Competition Qualifying Event is a wrap, and we now know the six competitors to receive the much sought after first-round bye in 2016 US Barista Championship later this year in Atlanta. The new 10 minute routine format meant that hot,  hot barista action was coming at breakneck speeds. Blink and you may miss the winning run.

For those competitors that fell short of the top six, there’s still hope. 24 spots are still up for grabs, to be awarded at the end of the week to the highest scoring competitors from the entire East/West field (sans the top six from each, naturally). We’ll have the complete list of 36 USBC eligible competitors here on Sprudgelive in two shakes…
