LA Coffee Club brings you the best of Barista Nation Los Angeles 2013, held at Curtis Coffee on September 29th.

What is Barista Nation?
Barista nation is to build the coffee community.

Who is Barista Nation for?
Barista Nation is for baristas, coffee roasters, cafe retailers, coffee enthusiasts - who come together in open forum to talk about coffee!

These events are all about sharing information and bringing people from different companies together to share their perspectives and experiences - so that everybody can learn from that.

Where does Barista Nation take place?

Barista Nations has been all over the world! This is our 2nd year doing Barista Nation in Los Angeles - it has also been to San Francisco, Tokyo, Paris, Seattle, Minneapolis.

"LA has this really incredible ability to draw people from all over the world
It's got all of the dog-eat-dog, gotta work hard, gotta be creative, gotta be on your hustle stuff that a place like new york does - but there's so much more room to grow... Its such a fascinating collection of people, I know when we come here, I come away being like, I had so many smart conversations, I met so many cool people, I found out about so much interesting stuff - and its just a really creative place." - Jordan Michelman: Co-Founder & Editor

"I think the best coffee bars will take those new ideas and at least try them.
And a lot of other coffee bars will get swept up in a frenzy and adopt stuff and not really know why. If you find yourself way down a path, doing stuff you don't really understand - you need to go back and with a really earnest approach and challenge what you're doing." - Kyle Glanville: 2008 US Barista Champion & G&B Coffee Co-Founder

"In LA you have a lot of creative people who like to see the world differently - and a lot of people who are obviously hungry for community." - Kenneth R Olson: Barista Magazine Publisher & Co-Founder
