16 contenders, 5 disciplines, 1 champion
Coffee reacts under pressure, but so do baristas, especially when tasked with showing off their coffee-making skills in a competition where time, taste and tactics are all crucial.
But that’s what makes Coffee Masters such an exciting competition.
It’s fast-paced and multi-disciplinary, ensuring that contenders have to demonstrate all of their barista skills in order to win.
Applications for this year’s competition are now open.
To enter, head to www.coffeemasters.org/apply
and submit your one-minute Signature Drink video.
You can be as imaginative as you like – we want baristas who are talented, creative and passionate.
The deadline for applications is June 30 and we’ll let successful contenders now in July.
Good luck and let battle commence!
