All past champions of AASCA endorsed events are invited to take control of the espresso machine, whether the title be at a regional, state, national or world level. Champions are asked to email nswbarista@aasca.com to let us know you will be coming.

      Excellent, lets hope the weather is as kind as other years!

      Im sure some CSrs would be happy to drop some cards around to help promote the comp. Might be worth get a few sent to the Sydney bean pickup point for July so that members can grab them from there?

      There is also another Aroma thread where CSrs have been chatting about the day...

                  Hi Bree,

                  The Overseas Passenger Terminal is the massive big grey building that runs north to south.
                  On the attached image, it is where the "D" and "L" letters are
