Three new SCASA Champions travelling to World Champ Events this year May 16 2017
Wow! We are still recovering from an amazing three days spent with the amazing people in South Africa's coffee industry for the SCASA National Coffee Competitions.
There were so many incredible moments and in the end we have three new South African Champions.
National Barista Champion: Winston Thomas, Western Cape, Origin Coffee Roasters
National Latte Art Champion: Alhenrico Thomas, Western Cape, Famous Brands
National Cup Tasters Champion: Simphiwe Adams, Eastern Cape, Sumatran Coffee
You can watch all the finalists' sets on our Facebook page. The Coffee Magazine, our official Media Partner sponsored the live streaming so that people across the country could watch!
Now preparations begin for Budapest and Seoul!
World of Coffee in Budapest is literally around the corner, so Alhenrico and Simphiwe will be applying for visas and booking flights! World Coffee Events are running multiple competitions at this expo and we are proud to have two representatives!
We can't wait to see how our Champs do on the World Stage!
Thank you so much to all the sponsors of the Championships and to all the supporters who came through to make it the best Nationals yet! Let's get behind our Champions and take them to the top!
