REGISTER NOW FOR THE SIOUX RIVER LATTE SLAM!
Registration is now open for the inaugural Sioux River Latte Slam! This competition will take place on June 23 at 7:00 pm at Coffea Dawley Farms in Sioux Falls. This competition will feature two brackets, one for Baristas and one for those who have never poured! Check out each bracket below. To add to the fun, food trucks and live music will be part of the evening!
Come and enjoy fun, food, and coffee as we raise funds for those working towards self-sufficiency in the Sioux Empire. Transportation is one of the biggest unmet needs in the Sioux Falls community, especially for those who have just begun new employment and are working hard to create a life for themselves and their families. Monthly bus passes cost $30 each, but the impact we can make through this assistance is nearly impossible to fully measure. This event will raise funds to provide 30-day bus passes to workers struggling to get to and from their job, the grocery store, daycare, and other resources. In the last five years, The Community Outreach has provided nearly 3,000 monthly bus passes to help people in the community through this period in their lives. During this competition, we will share the story of many of those assisted through this fundamental service.
Not your first time behind the bar? Register for the Barista Bracket. Registration is FREE and the overall winner will receive a great prize package including a Barzata Sette 270W Espresso Grinder! The competition will feature a panel of five judges, three coffee experts and two local celebrities. The initial bracket will provide for 32 competitors. The brackets may expand based on entries. As more Baristas register, great prizes will be added to the pot!
Have you ever wondered how your Barista makes those incredible designs atop your brew? Now is your chance to try your hand! You will be provided with an espresso shot and freshly steamed milk to make your own masterpiece! This bracket is for those who’s only experience is pressing the “brew” button on the Bunn or adding water to your French Press. A great prize package will be presented to the winner of the Newbie Bracket!
More information will be posted regularly, including additions to the Grand Prize Package, door prizes, contestant updates, food truck information, and much more! If you have a specific question, please reach out to Dane at [email protected]!
