Are you budding barista dying to stretch your wings? In case you missed the Durban barista champs in July… head on over to Joburg and check it out!

It’s that time of year again when the Good Food and Wine Show comes to Johannesburg.  This year we will be at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate from Thursday 30 October to Sunday 2 November 2008. The Good Food and Wine Show will be hosting the Regional Barista Championships where the 6 finalists will proceed to the nationals in Johannesburg during the month of February 2009.  The winner will proceed to the World Barista Championship in Atlanta, USA in April, all expenses paid.  This opportunity is not to be missed.The coffee theatre sponsored by Lavazza, Kahlua and Beyond The Bean, endorsed by SCASA will be hot when richly brewed coffee’s will be made throughout the day as contestants in the Barista Championship display their talents in latte art and perfect cappuccinos.  The cost is R300 per barista.To ensure you receive a time slot of 30 minutes which includes 15 minutes prep time and 15 minutes competition time, please contact me (Tanya) on 021 797 4500 ext 116.  We only have a limited amount of places so do not delay.

Urban Grounds has one barista, Peleka, competing in nationals in January. Cheer on Peleka in the shop whenever you have a chance!
