From the NERBC website:

The United States Barista Championship (USBC) is a national competition designed to highlight the craft of the barista and espresso-based beverage production. The annual competition cycle consists of 6 regional events that lead up to the US Barista Championship. The winner of each competition will have proven their professionalism, passion and skill through various criteria as outlined in the USBC Rules and Regulations. In a 15 minute presentation, competitors will prepare and serve three courses of espresso based beverages to a panel of four sensory judges. Two technical judges will score competitors on procedures, consistency, cleanliness and other technical details. The top six from each regional event will be granted entry into the 2011 USBC.
