    Results from Adelaide AASCA Barista Competition

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just returned from the comp today, and the winners were as follows:

    1: Fiefy (Bracegirdles)
    2. Jonny Pisanni (?)
    3. Mark Bowler (The Coffee Barun)

    Congrats to all the guys and girls who competed, particularly to these three and to Fiefy who was last years state champion too. The whole day was a real marathon for all those involved in running the show but was a great event that was well attended by the public and really showcased what specialty coffee is all about.

    Tomorrow is latte art and cupping.

    Greg

    Oh and it would be remiss of me to exclude this photo of a guest of honour... ;)

    Is Andy actually walking around with a crown on his head, or is it an honour bestowed upon him by you? ;)

    I was hoping a friend of mine would enter, but no such luck this year (too many staff on holiday where he works apparently...) Well done to all the entrants and winners, and its good to see that the weather has warmed up today for the show-goers :)

    The crown is not a physical one the public can see. This photo was just taken using a SSR (Snob Status Revelation) filter. ;) But glad you think my photoshopping skills are that good!

    It does look real....Greg. Good work! ::)
    I was thinking when I first saw the picture that I didnt see Andy was wearing the crown. I was wondering where did he get it from... ;D

    Also, thanks for coming...Andy! ;)
