Free State Barista Champs Results August 21 2018

Well done to all the competitors of the first Barista Championship in the Free State! The idea was to get this region going so they started with a shortened format with less judges, having to complete the espresso course and the milk based course in 10 minutes. The Top 3 will proceed to Nationals. See full results below.

1. Thabo Kheleroa - Jaru Coffee

2. Stevo Kuhn - Urban Brew

3. Lizé Taljaard - Royal Roastery

Thank you to all our headline sponsor DaVinci Gourmet and the Supplier Sponsors as well as all Judges who volunteered their time. Thank you also to the Venue Host, Coffee Extravaganza at Windmill Casino. A great time was had by all and SCASA looks forward to the growth of this region.


The victorious Top 3!
