Competition training

With over 25 years of combined competition experience, we have a considerable amount of knowledge in the realm of barista competitions. Prior to winning the World Barista Championship, Pete spent 7 years in the US championship circuit, always in the top 10 of the nation, and typically placing in the top 2 rankings. During that time he perfected his details in preparation and presentation building, as well as understanding how to maximize scores for the best placement possible. He has volunteered his time as a United States judge for a total of 4 years, giving him insight into the most up to date and current judging impressions.

Holly began her competition career in 2002 as a competitor before taking on the role of judge. She was actively involved as a sensory, technical, and eventually head judge. She also worked as a coach with multiple competitors, including Pete, for almost a decade before joining Licata Coffee Consultants. She has organized competitors from the back room to the stage and has even worked as a coordinator for the competition events.

Whether you are ready to try your hand at competition for the first time, or simply want to take yourself to the next level we will help you get the most from the competition experience.

We have limited availability for this service each year, so be sure to book training days early.
