Help Out & Hang Out in Boston or Berlin

Volunteering with the Barista Guild at the upcoming Expo and World of Coffee Events is one of the best ways to get a front row seat to all the action happening on the show floor, in lecture and workshops, and at the World Coffee Championships.

Whether on stage with the World Coffee Championship competitors, on the show floor promoting sustainability on the Green Team, or helping with any of the lectures, panels or workshops offered, volunteering is truly a priceless experience!  

If you’re headed to Boston for Expo in a few short weeks, we still have volunteer opportunities available Wednesday-Sunday of the show and with the World Barista Championship and World Brewers Cup. All you need is 16 credits for a free Expo badge – that’s access to the show floor, the activities hall, lectures, and more! It’s possible to earn your Expo badge by volunteering in one day, or spreading your volunteer hours across the entire weekend. Check out the opportunities still available here or if you’d like a little assistance putting together the perfect volunteer schedule, send an email to

Not making it to Boston, but joining us at World of Coffee Berlin in June? We still have volunteer positions available! From World Latte Art to Cezve/Ibrik Championships, cupping or lecture rooms – there’s ample opportunity to get involved and one of the BEST ways to meet fellow baristas from all over the world! Find out how to volunteer at World of Coffee here!
