The First Ever Deaf Barista Competition July 24 2017
SCASA successfully hosts the first ever Deaf Barista Competition:
"I can honestly say that this is the best experience of my life. Better than winning Latte Art and Cup Tasters, better than any coffee experience I've had before."
Esther Maasdam, Dutch Latte Art and Cup Tasters Champ in different years and current WCE All Star, was overwhelmed by the passion and skill of the 6 deaf baristas who competed on stage at Coffee&Chocolate 13-16 July 2017.
Have you ever wondered where your SCASA Membership fees go to? Part of the funds go to running the association, another part goes to running the barista competitions and the final part is ploughed into Barista Education and training. The latest initiative, was to hold the first ever Deaf barista competition, which was initiated by the Ciro team Lani Snyman, Lizaan Alberts and Johnson Sehoro - and carried through with support from the SCASA Board members and SCASA volunteers.
