The countdown has begun to the World Barista Champs in Rimini, Italy.

From 10 - 12 June baristas from around the world will meet at World of Coffee, organised by SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe).

The competition showcases incredible talent in the following categories,

  • World Barista Champs
  • World Brewers Cup (Manual Brewing)
  • Coffee Roasting Champs

This year we have 2 baristas competing from South Africa, Craig Charity (SA Barista Champ) and Dan Erasmus (SA Aeropress Champ). Both baristas are extremely excited to be competing, as Craig said "Can you imagine a South African winning this thing!" SCASA representative Kyle Fraser will be attending and TheCoffeeMag will also be reporting from the event.
