Introducing Espressofest, the new home of the UKBC Finals. Sitting alongside two days of the UKBC competition will be a mini festival supported by our fantastic sponsors. Plus Sunday will see panel discussions and content provided by the world renown ‘Tamper Tantrum’, whilst both days will have a wide range of educational content curated by SCA UK board member Ben Townsend and supported by the London School of Coffee, Mercanta and the Barista Guild Of Europe. Espressofest will be held at the Passenger Shed at Brunel's Historic Temple Meads Station, where the sixteen highest placed competitors from the UKBC heats will compete in the semi-finals on Saturday 19th Augusts. The six highest scoring will then battle it out on Sunday 20th August, where the winner will be crowned the United Kingdom Barista Champion 2017 and will go on to represent the UK in the World Barista Championships in November in Seoul, South Korea. Tickets cost £6 each and cover both days; Saturday 19th August and the Sunday 20th August. All proceeds from the sale of the tickets will be donated to the charity of the 2017 UKBC Winner.* Www.espressofest.com
I don't know about anyone else but I do like to enter the odd competition here or there. Maybe we should have a topic/permanent thread entitled Competition(s) and then when anyone sees a coffee related competition details can be posted to give others the chance of winning a prize. In the past I have googled competitions which have coffee machines/coffee accessories as a prize but quite often the deadline has passed. What does everyone else think?
I know from a different thread that a few people were watching the WBC in Copenhagen, but I was wondering if anyone was going for any barista competitions this year, or if anyone had already competed? If you are wanting to compete, but haven't, do you have any questions? And people who have already competed, do you have any tips on presentation, music or even signature drinks? As a competition virgin myself (and hoping to enter the UKBC this coming year), I'd love any kind of inspiration or advice from would-be or have-been competitors. Thought I'd throw it out there. Cheers, Seamus
