Baristas compete for glory in Toronto this week

The best baristas in Canada will duke it out for glory this week at Propeller Coffee in Toronto. The battle is part of the Canadian Barista Competition and will determine who gets a spot in the nationals this fall in Vancouver.

Coffee making might not seem like the most natural spectator sport, but when you throw in coffee and beer tastings, food trucks, and some outlandish latte art, it becomes far more of a party than, say, your average food fest in Toronto.

The competition takes place all day on June 11, with an after party at the new Reunion Island coffee shop on Roncesvalles at 7:30pm. Coffee buffs will rejoice at the opportunity to rub shoulders with industry insiders, while those who are more into food and beer can fill up with a little bit of entertainment on the side.
