When:  5pm – 10pm Wednesday 6th January

 

As you may know we are hosting the South East regional of the UK Barista Championship this year.  There is a pdf download of information about the heat here.

 

We highly recommend competing (but then we would!), and as part of our involvement in the South East regional we are hosting a workshop about competition.

 

The aim of the workshop is to take some of the mystery away from competition, help competitors understand what is expected of them and how to get the most out of it.  We’ll cover the DOs and DON’Ts of competing and do our best to answer everyone’s questions.  It should be a lot of fun, as well as being informative.

 

Two World Barista Champions will be on hand to give talks and answer questions – this is a great opportunity to tune up those performances.

 

Numbers will be limited, and those who have signed up to compete in the regional event – which you need to do by December 31st – are guaranteed a space.  For those interested in attending/competing then we will also put tickets in the webshop at the start of January.  We anticipate about 15-20 spaces.

 

We’re working hard to make sure that the London/South East regional is a great experience for all involved, especially the baristas who compete.  Competition is a great learning experience and if you’ve made it through a single round of the UBF then anything else should be easy!

 

Any questions then do please leave a comment or get in touch.
