The countdown has begun, as the National Barista Champs take place at the end of November. Baristas who have placed in the top 6 of their regions are all gearing up for their chance at a spot in the finals, and maybe even being crowned SA's next Barista Champ.

The winners of the Cup Tasters Competition, Latte Art Competition, and the Barista Competition will all have a chance to compete at the World Barista Champs, to be held in Durblin (Ireland) in 2016.

The National competition is being held in the sunny, coastal city of Durban, at the Gateway Shopping Centre. If you want to watch this exciting competition make sure you save the dates, and have a look at the line up for this epic coffee competition.
