With the U.S Coffee Championships coming up next month — which our lead roaster Paul is competing in — we wanted to take a moment to look back on last year's competition. We had three semi-finalists: two in the Barista Championship and one in the Brewers Cup Championship.

Our competitors in the 2022 United States Barista Championship (USBC) both used our Luis Reinoso coffee. We just added this coffee back to our menu last week! So, while each harvest tastes different year after year, we still wanted to share the Luis Reinoso Signature Drinks recipes our team competed with last year using that harvest of Luis Reinoso.

Madcap barista Rhianna Bennie made it to the semi-finals using Luis Reinoso’s AAA separation coffee and her expertise in espresso. Here’s the signature drink recipe she used.

Rhia and her signature drink at USBC 2022

-100g honey
-7g black sesame seeds

To make dragonfruit simple syrup

- Simmer 150g dragonfruit flesh, 100g honey, and 50g water for 12 minutes on a medium heat

Madcap’s Sales Manager (and former Madcap barista) Ben Martin impressed judges with his skills and Luis Reinoso’s AAA separation coffee, also making it to the national semi-finals. Here’s the signature drink recipe he used.
