Supporting local coffee shops: Latte Art Throwdown

Local Coffee Shops

Most of us love a good cup of coffee. While we might regularly go to Starbucks or some other larger coffee chain we often forget about the local baristas we have around us.

The Bismarck Barista Guild is a community of independent coffee owners who work together.

Instead of competing against each other, they gather every month to talk about what’s working with their business and what they can do to improve.

The President of Mighty Missouri Coffee says it can be tough at first for local baristas–especially competing against larger companies.

He says once people experience a local brewed coffee there’s no turning back.

President of Mighty Missouri Coffee, Brian Jackson says, “Beyond getting the coffee in a quick way in a drive through or something we are really taking it to the farms and seeing how those growing methods affected the flavor. And the way we roast the coffee exemplifies that flavor and how we brew that coffee exemplifies that coffee further.”

This Thursday the Bismarck Barista Guild will host their annual Latte Art Throwdown. They will have barista’s coming in from all over showcasing their coffee art talents.

They hope by having events like these they can show the community the benefits of local coffee shops.
