United states Brewers cup
The United States Brewers Cup (USBrC) is an exciting competition that highlights and celebrates the art of manual brewing. Competitors will perform three services, Compulsory, Open Service, and Serve The Audience. Compulsory & Open Service are judged by skilled coffee tasters. The Compulsory is a blind tasting, the competitors all brew the same coffee on their chosen manual devices. During Open Service competitors will brew and present their chosen coffee to the judges panel.

In 2017, there were two events leading up to USBrC that included qualifying events for all of the U.S. Coffee Championships. Brewers had to compete at a CoffeeChamps event to qualify for the national championship. Each CoffeeChamp's event featured 36 Brewers Cup competitors.
The top 12 competitors from each of the two CoffeeChamps events are advancing to compete in the U.S. Coffee Championships in Seattle, WA, from April 21 - 23, 2017. The winner of the U.S. Brewers Cup will represent the United States in the World Brewers Cup Championship. The World Brewers Cup will take place June 13 - 15, 2017 in Budapest, Hungary!
