      For those of you who could not make it to the info night, i am sorry because you missed out on a great night. The 30 strong had the chance to listen to Justin Metcalf, David Makin, Con Haramabopoulos & Luca Costanzo give their thoughts on competitions in the various categories. It was awesome to see so many new faces and all bodes well for Specialty Coffee in Victoria. Looks like the Vics are going to be a real cracker.

      Just remember that if you are interested in competing or helping out get in contact with your ASSCA representative TODAY!!!!!

                          Just wondering do we have to pay for the entrance fee?

                            No, its FREE to come and watch the best in the state pour, cup and art on both days.

                            Even better, after each barista has competed they will spend 15 minutes on a coffee cart with their own coffee and for something like a a gold coin donation they will make you a cup of coffee too.

                            There will be screens to get a good view, cameras on the pour and plenty of people with a coffee passion to have a yak to.

                            Should be a great day out.
