Results from the Western Cape Barista Champs August 31 2015

This past weekend the CTICC was flooded with foot traffic around the Homemakers Expo. Host to the Western Cape Barista Champs this made for an enjoyable weekend for all. Baristas were supported by expo attendees, as they competed for a spot at Nationals later this year.

The talent was impressive and the baristas pulled out all the stops when it came to great coffee.

However, as we all know, there can only be one Western Cape Barista Champ. The 2015 Barista Champ was named and a huge CONGRATS goes to Wayne Oberholzer of Portland Project.

The top 6 baristas going through to Nationals in November are (in no particular order)...
