After the success of the first RVA Barista Jam at Ellwood’s Coffee on March 24, the GlobeHopper Coffeehouse & Lounge will host a second competition tomorrow (April 14) from 6 to 10 p.m. While formal competitions can be brutal and intense, Erin Helland of GlobeHopper says that these “jams” are fun, friendly affairs in which no one takes himself (or herself) too seriously.
Around 15 competitors (who can pre-register at RVAbaristajam.com) will compete to have their coffee beverage named the winner. Darren MacMartin of Ellwood's Coffee grabbed first place at the last event with a coconut-curry mocha.
