Who needs tickets?

The Canadian Barista Championships are taking place on October the 14th and 15th here in Vancouver.  That’s less than 10 days people.

Here’s the lowdown -

If you would like to go to watch, you will need a ticket.  The tickets come in 2 prices:  30$ or free.

How does one get the free ticket?  Ask and you shall receive.

I will say this again -  if you want to go and watch the national championships (and you obviously do) then you will need a ticket.  We have free ones that we literally have to give away.

This offer is open to anyone who needs one, from the public to competing baristas and their moms.  If you’re coming from out of town, or know someone who is and they need tickets, you just have let us know so we can get them to you.

If you currently reside in Vancouver, keep your eyes open for a yellow fixed gear bicycle ripping around town.  That is Chris, and he is going around to all the cafes and hot spots in town giving away tickets.  That being said, you may be able to get tickets from whatever cafe you frequent, but if they don’t have any then just send us an email and we will get you taken care of.

Don’t be shy!

    Oh Chris, you charmer you. I gotta say CNBC did the right thing and waived barista fees in the end, so strike my bitchy comment from the record.

    Just got word that the 9-station Hario brew bar will be making its first appearance in Canada. Come check us out at booth 602 and look for some of the cleanhotdry crew behind the bar. We’ll have some beautiful coffees on tap.
