“Barista introduces the world to the competitive espresso-maker circuit, profiling five enterprising young baristas as they vie for a national title.” — Variety
Five top baristas find themselves pushing the limits of coffee perfection to win the National Barista Championship in the U.S. – a surreal competition where even one mistake is far too many. Once a year, thousands of baristas square off in competitions around the U.S., but only one will become the National Champion. Barista takes viewers on a humorous, emotional and enlightening look into the unimaginable world of coffee competitions and the passionate, lovable and quirky characters who devote their lives to them. If you think you know coffee, this film will make you think twice.
To celebrate Galway’s growing coffee culture we will be pitting the finest baristas from Galway and Ireland against each other in an old-fashioned barista-style competition in Badger & Dodo café at 4.30pm. Admission free.
