    AASCA QLD Barista Championship 2008

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey,

    I went to the QLD Barista Championship to have a look and took some photos. I was there only for the first half and had to go so I didnt get any photos after the lunch break. It was very exciting as it was my first time to watch.
    Heres the link http://picasaweb.google.com/samliao9...aChampion2008#

    CK :)

    Nice pics CK... although I think you should have had a crack at the Latte comp yourself.

    No rumours on who won?

    I was just emailed...

    The Latte Art and Cup- Tasting competitions were not run for QLD due low numbers, the entrants will be entered to the repechage event at the Nationals held on the 31st of January 2009
    So CK can still enter!

    ;)

    Excellent pics CK... 8-)

    Also support the proposition put forward by everyone else above mate.... You should enter the Comp and give them all a good shake-up. Cant hurt and youll learn a hell of a lot in the process. Were all behind you CK... [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Thats great news CK! Dont forget that all the competitors will be as nervous as you might be, and have fun with it.

    And just in case there are any other competitors reading this thread, or people unfamiliar with your ability.....

    Good luck! :)

    Tim
    No, I took the 2009 season off due to study commitments. Expect to see me in action in 2010. D. Makin encouraged me to compete in the latte art...which was 3 days after my last exam.

    I will be up in Goldy, most likely a spectator....best of luck, Tim...with all your preparations for the nationals.

    Dave.

    yeah, one of the judges scored it a 5.5. Pretty impressed with my sensory scores all round actually, if I compete again I know I just need to put on the show.
