Glitter Cat Barista Is the Competition Bootcamp We’ve Been Waiting For https://t.co/LGgVmtHNCQ
T. Ben Fischer wanted to change that. After placing second at this year’s USBC in Seattle in April, he wanted to share the resources he received with others. “I learned so much working with Holly [Bastin] and Pete [Licata] , and I wanted to find a way to share what I learned with others,” he said. So he began brainstorming and came up with Glitter Cat Barista , an all-expenses-paid competition bootcamp. “Glitter Cat Barista Bootcamp (GCBB) is a barista training program focused on providing coaching to members of marginalized communities (LGBTQ+, women, racial/ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities) for the United States Barista Championship to increase representation and diversity on the national and international barista competition stages,” the website states.
