Staff pick: Cafe Brioso Barista Jam

If you’re hoping for espresso-stained guys playing bongos and guitars, you’ll be sorely disappointed at this weekend’s barista jam at Cafe Brioso. But if black gold is what you seek — and work hard to achieve, darn it — you’re in luck. This occasional event is for professional coffee crafters and passionate amateurs.

There’s an open “jam” — copious talk about roasting beans, making coffee and espresso drinks and all the techniques and tricks that lie between — from 6-9 p.m. The evening ends with a latte art throwdown. You can see from the photo that the folks at Brioso have an upper hand. Bring on the challengers!
