Craig Charity heads to AFCA in Ethiopia to represent SCASA February 09 2017

Last time around in 2014, when Craig Charity of Lineage Coffee, 2013 South African Barista Champ represented SCASA at AFCA in Burundi, he did not fare too well running overtime and being disqualified. Faced with this unexpected opportunity to travel to Ethiopia as our current SA Champion, Wayne Oberholzer is unable to go and Craig was the Runner Up in last years competition, he is determined to put forward his best possible set and be crowned African Barista Champion 2017.

We are behind him all the way!

Last time he traveled alone which contributed to the difficulties he faced, this time he will take Fani Myeza, his roaster, barista and trusted friend with him to claim victory for South Africa! This will be a life changing experience for Fani, who is an incredibly passionate individual with a bright future ahead.

This has come at great financial cost. Franke SA, a SCASA gold Sponsor  and Illovo Sugar have played a huge role in getting Fani to Ethiopia. If you would like support this worthy cause, please follow this link to find all the details:
