This year, Cartel is proud to be sponsoring the Barista Guild of America (BGA) Barista Camp taking place this September in Tucson, AZ – home to two of our locations.

At Barista Camp, baristas of all skill levels have the opportunity to learn and attend courses taught by the best coffee professionals in the industry. Topics range from beginning coffee fundamentals to advanced courses for seasoned professionals to the most cutting edge concepts in coffee today.

In addition to Barista Camp itself, Cartel is hosting an open-to-anyone latte art throwdown on September 15 at our Broadway Blvd. location in Tucson. $5 buy-in to compete, free to come hang out and join in on the festivities.

Barista Camp will be hosted at the beautiful Loews Ventana Canyon Resort from September 14-17. Early-bird registration prices have been extended until this Friday, so grab your spot before the spaces fill up!
