Why attend? Because you’ll be using some shiny new Marzoccos there! Camp Pull-A-Shot is the first annual event of its kind that will focus on offering educational courses and content for baristas who want to take their skills to the next level. You will have the opportunity to complete multiple levels of BGA Certification in a very short period of time. Camp Pull-A-Shot will also offer a unique opportunity for all skill levels to have hands on training with some of the most innovative and dynamic baristas in the country. This event will encourage great community networking and fellowship. And at this fantastic price point, you have no excuse not to attend. Compared to private training programs or even SCAA workshops taken individually, you are saving a bundle. Advance your career and get the most cutting edge information and education from the highest level of professional baristas and trainers in the industry.
Who should attend?
-Baristas with all levels of experience looking for certification opportunities, education, and community building.
-Both small and large retailers looking to advance their training and in-store service programs.
BGA Camp Pull-A-Shot
Our friends at Visions Espresso introduces their Coffee Enhancement Lounge (nice blurb here from Seattle Times), an extension of their services into training and consulting. Spearheaded by the always cheerful Sarah Dooley, every event should be a blast.
The Coffee Enhancement Lounge, or intentionally abbreviated as CEL so people like me won’t forget, features a La Marzocco Linea Manual Paddle, a standard Linea, and a GS/3. Soon it will also feature a Slayer, so baristas can have a smackdown between a Slayer and a Linea Manual Paddle.

When not training, Sarah and her accomplices at Visions enjoy water gun/balloon fights, pranks during coffee cupping, and anything else that doesn’t relate to work.
If you’ll be around Seattle on Saturday, August 29, check out CEL’s all day class/lecture on defect cupping, PID, SO espresso roasting, equipment mods, and more presented by many industry names you may know. The event will migrate over to a BGA sanctioned Barista Jam/Latte Art Smackdown at Victrola, where winning NW baristas will compete with LA baristas during Coffee Fest.
