KANSAS CITY, U.S. — The next edition of the U.S. Coffee Championships (USCC) will take place at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, MO on March 15-17, 2019.
In order to compete at USCC, competitors must first qualify at the U.S. CoffeeChamps Qualifying Events on December 1-2, 2018 in Denver, CO or January 12-13, 2019 in Nashville, TN.
USCC events usually take place in conjunction with the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) Expo.
However, next year the World Barista Championship and World Brewers Cup competitions will be hosted by the SCA Expo in Boston (April 11 – 14, 2019), so that U.S. champions must be crowned ahead of that event.

- Barista Championship
- Brewers Cup
- Coffee in Good Spirits Championship
- Cup Tasters Championship
- Roaster Championship
