Cappuccinists and foodies unite! Tomorrow kicks off the 3-day Southwest Barista Competition
at Hollywood's Siren Studios. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf-hosted event will find the six best baristas of the region, who will go on to compete in the national contest. The top U.S. winner will represent the country in the World Barista Championship to be held in Colombia in June. L.A.'s own Devin Pedde of Intelligentsia was among the top six U.S. baristas in last year's contest.

Food trucks serving it up at the event include @ManilaMachine, @ButtermilkTruck, CoolHaus, Crepe'n Around and @NaanStop; click here to see the full list and schedule.
