On February 8th from 5PM-8PM, Coffee Project NY's new Long Island City location (21-10 51st Ave.) will host a fundraiser ($35) to raise money for six Glitter Cat baristas who will be competing in the upcoming 2020 National U.S. Coffee Championships. (Glitter Cat is a not-for-profit that trains NYC baristas for coffee competitions.)
Tickets, which cost $35, entitle entrants to sample five coffee beverages, one from each baristas station. The drinks served will be the same ones the competitors will be offering in their respective competitions.
