Today's the day! 2015 Western Cape Barista Champs August 27 2015

It's an exciting day in Cape Town at the start of the 2015 Western Cape Barista Champs.

The baristas have come from all around the province and are ready to give it their best in 15 minutes of performance time. This group of baristas are all passionate and excited for their set, where they are to prepare a cappuccino course, espresso course and a signature drink for 4 sensory judges. These judges will taste their coffee and make sure that the texture of the milk is also as should be. While the baristas are making their courses they are being judged by a panel of technical judges, ensuring their station is always clean and their techniques are up to standard. 

These competitions are always great fun and the baristas really get an opportunity to learn about the competition space, as well as connect with other baristas and learn from each other.

This years competition is being hosted by the Homemakers Expo at the ICC.

Tickets are still available if you'd like to go and support the baristas and have a look around the expo.
