Australian Coffee Championships announced
Hoping to be crowned the best of the best, Australia’s top roasters, baristas and latte artists will come together in Adelaide to battle it out in the 2020 Condesa Co Lab Australian Coffee Championships.
The four-day event, hosted by Australian Specialty Coffee Association (ASCA), is being held at Tasting Australia in Adelaide from March 27 2020.
ASCA President Kieran Westlake says champions from the event will go on to represent Australia.
“Champions will go on to represent Australia on the world stage, competing against national champions from across the global to be crowned World Champion.”
“This is an exciting event for Australia and the coffee industry, the best of the best will be recognised.”
Former world coffee champion, Sasa Sestic says the competition drives baristas and roasters to be their best.
“I spent more than 10 hours a day for 100 consecutive days training in the lead-up to the competition.”
“The competition pushes you to be the best and encourages you to learn about coffee from professionals all over Australia and the world. It has inspired me to be innovative in making coffee as tasty as possible for my brand Ona Coffee,” Sasa says.
“It also brings my team closer together. Regardless of whether we win or not, after every event, we are a better team than we were before.”
Coffee lovers will have the chance to sample some of Australia’s finest coffee, take in all the action and watch the latte artists perform their magic.
