What we do

Below are the 3 competitions we do at international standards

Cup Tasters

Coffees of the world have many distinct taste characteristics and in this competition format the objective is for the cupper to discriminate between the different coffees. Three cups are placed in a triangle, with 2 cups being identical coffees and one cup being a different coffee. Using skills of smell, taste, attention and experience, the cupper will identify the odd cup in the triangle as quickly as they can.

Baristas

Competitors each prepare 4 espressos, 4 milk drinks, and 4 original signature drinks to exacting standards in a 15-minute performance set to music. Baristas are judged based on visual attributes, creativity, identical patterns in the pairs, contrast in patterns, and overall performance.

LATTE ART

Latte Art is always a fan favourite. Baristas have 8 minutes to pour their most beautiful and creative milk designs. Baristas are judged on contrast, symmetry, innovation and being able to replicate the pattern.
