South African Champion at All Africa Barista Champs this week! February 12 2018
Winston Thomas, SCASA National Barista Champion, will compete this week at the All African Champs held at AFCA in Kampala, Uganda.
We wish him all the best and hope that he gains valuable insights that he can bring back to the broader industry. When we chatted to him last week, he was feeling confident and excited for this adventure!
AFCA is a very prestigious event, in fact the biggest coffee event in Africa! It's focus is for producers and exporters to share knowledge and strengthen Africa's position on the global coffee stage. South Africa has always been very active in this organisation.
