  • CS Shoot-out @ Aroma

    On behalf of the good people at Di Bartoli, Im looking for people whod be interested in taking part in a Barista Jam at the Aroma Festival (The Rocks, Sunday June 22). Its going to be a bit of fun, with our great leader, Andy, having agreed to act as judge, and Di Bartoli offering a Naked PF and a $50 voucher for the winner; as well as a Coffeelab design tamper courtesy of Talk Coffee.

    It will be a pretty simple affair- you jump behind one of the machines Di Bartoli are bringing for demonstration, and make a couple of coffees. Everything youll need will be within reach.

    Points will be allocated for:
    a. Espresso Extraction
    b. Milk coffee presentation

    The catch is that you have about 5-10 minutes, and will be assigned a machine/grinder (and all the other bits and pieces) at random   So judging will be based on the coffee, and how well youve coped with an unfamiliar machine. If weve got enough people, well have a few rounds, and then a final shoot-out.

    The jam will run at 12noon!

    So, if youre thinking this sounds like a bit of fun, reply here or PM me!

          Excellent.

          I hear the judge will award bonus points to anyone who can pour a CS logo.




          Should be a blast.

                              Judging criteria will be far more than just art (although those pics of "yours" look reasonable Coastal Coffee)

                              We should have something tangible soon but I would expect a bias on the actual espresso shot because its the base requirement of all great coffee drinks.

                              Quality, process, attention to detail, speed and presentation.
                              (in roughtly that order of value)

                              Pretty drinks are "cute", great drinks are better!

                              So practice dialing in a grinder, getting a great shot and not making the milk scream for mercy and you have the makings of an Aroma Fest star.
