    Does anyone know anything about competing? Has anyone done it? What was it like? Was it what you expected? Was there anything unexpected about it? Anyone know where i can find out more??

    Actually Lindz...im curious to know also?

    I have long wondered what it would be like to enter either latte art comp or a round of the Australian barista comp.

    I imagine the first time you compete would be comparable to doing a trial for a new cafe/ resturant only 15 minutes long? I had a laugh

    Anyone?!?!?!?!?

    Gday Lindz and Luke,
    I dont know about competitions but I think a good place to start doing some research on barista comps would be the Austral Asian Specialty Coffee Association (AASCA).
    Heres a link to their page.
    https://www.aasca.com/
    All the best,
    Steve.

    Not sure where youre located but if wanna see a comp going on check out the AASCA site as Lovey has posted. I think the NSW state comp is on the 24th October.

    There is also comp going on at the Willoughby street fair in Chatswood on September 12th between 10-1pm. I wont be competing but might be judging at them.

    Re: Barista Competitions

    It was a topic at work this afternoon actually!

    We might be holding a barista jam at my cafe/resturant one evening with canapes and wine.

    A small cover charger for baristas wanting to take part on the day and cheap if not free coffee based drinks for all?!?!?!?!?

    It would be in about a month or so.
    ANYONE interested?

    Northern rivers area(Lismore, Ballina, Alstonville) area.

    Were looking to promote barista talent in our area.. there will be a small prize on offer to the winning barista on the day(scores not revealed to the public) but in all honesty..were only wanting to promote coffee and wine in out area.
