Inspired by London’s Ultimate Barista Fighter. Aiming to create and deepen the coffee community, while using pod coffee machines. Having fun while competing against those annoyingly skillful barista from your rival cafe. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to Ristretto Barista Fight!

The very first RBF was hosted at Kaffa two weeks ago. In order to make the event as accessible to everyone, from pro baristas to enthusiasts, we decided to pour some lattes with two separete categories: home baristas and “the ones who’ve worked at least one shift”.

The event had over 20 participants which I consider a very nice amount compared to the size of Finnish coffee scene. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves, drink some nice coffee and pour beautiful tulips and a few rosettas, too.
Thanks for all the participants and I’ll see you at the next RBF very soon! We already got a suggestion: a Versalab-themed joke competition…
