This week the UK barista championships are going no at Olympia in London. I’m privileged that 5 competitors wanted to use our coffee in the finals out of the 26 people entered.
We are even more pleased that today from the semi finals we have had three of those competitors progress through to the final six. I’m so proud of these guys who have done themselves proud.
So well done to Barry Lawrenson from Roasters, Scarborough
Also well done to Neli Petkova (the second year she has made finals with our coffee) and Mariusz Mescek both from Café Krem. Also well done to Se’ cafe krem owners who has trained them all (also not a bad Barista himself runner up in last years UKBC)
I also want to say well done to Ben and Lance, who didn’t make finals but made me incredibly proud.
Its so good to work with some of the best baristas in the UK and really good to see the rewarded. Will post an update tomorrow on how they do but fingers crossed.
