We are incredibly proud of SA Barista, Wayne Oberholzer for placing 29th in the whole competition. His performance was a testament to his wide coffee knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for specialty coffee.
We are already looking forward to our National competition to see which SA barista will have the privilege of competing at the WBC next year!
Thank you to everyone who makes these events a possibility for our baristas. Sponsors, team support and the passionate coffee community all play a vital role in sending our baristas to compete on an international level. We cannot wait to see what tips and experience Wayne brings home from his time in Dublin.
