    AASCA 2008 - South Australian Barista Championship

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    The South Australian leg of national barista competition was held today at The Beach Club in Glenelg. There was a mixture of previous and first time competitors. I am amazed that each year the standard of competition improves with Baristas extending themselves with uniques coffees and very creative signature drinks.

    The results are:

    1st Place - Ian Callahan
    2nd Place - Douglas Bolzon (last years champion)
    3rd Place - Johnny Pisanelli

    Well done to all the other competitors and I am sure that we may see some of the guys in the Open Heat on the Finals Weekend in Melbourne.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the support! It really could have gone to any of the competitors on the day. A great job all round.

    I must give a massive shout out to Jonny aswell, who was our pick of the day for the win. Cant wait to see him dominate next time round :)

    Hmmm, looks like there will be a few more competing at the Royal Adelaide Show, especially since it will be the qualifier for the 2009 ABCs.
