The announcement has been made and the 2015 SA National Barista Champs will be held in Durban! This is a pretty big deal, as Durban has never been host to this fantastic competition. Gateway’s Expo Xplore Court will become stage to the top 24 baristas in South Africa, where they will compete for first place.
The winner of this competition will be named South African Barista Champ and will head over to Dublin, Ireland in 2016 to compete at the World Barista Champs. Like I said, this is a pretty big deal.
Never been to a coffee competition, well this is what you can expect – Read “What happens at the barista champs?”.
The SA National Barista Champs will take place from the 19th – 22nd November.
These events are organised by the Specialty Coffee Association of Southern Africa, together with their awesome sponsors. They are run as per World Coffee Events standards and these competitions are a terrific platform for young baristas to further their skills and network amongst industry leaders.
I will DEFINITELY be at the competition so I hope to see many of you there!
