Sending well wishes to every barista competing. Have fun and impress those judges. The top 2 latte art finalists will go through to Nationals, the top 6 barista finalists, and the top 4 cup tasters.

We want to encourage you to head down to the Expo this weekend and cheer on your local baristas. They learn so much at these competitions, and in turn this means your daily coffee will just get better and better.

All the details about the expo are on their website, so we'll see you at the Boardwalk Exhibition Centre this weekend!
