The yearly Australian Grand Barista Challenge
In 2011 the Australasian winner was Sasa Sestic, a roaster/barista from Ona Coffee House in ACT. He joins the ranks of the best baristas in the world. Sasa felt a lot of pressure travelling to Thailand as the Australian representative of DGBC and wanted to make sure the title remained in Australia.
"I trained 3-4 hours a day for 3 days a week and also spent time with the Danes team in Australia perfecting my shots. It was a great opportunity to travel to another country and see the comparison in techniques. I am excited about bringing the title back to Australia with me" Sasa explained.
Entry is FREE to the public and doors open at 10am.A Latte Art competition, Taste Test Challenge and Danes Home Barista Competition supported by Giotto, will make for an exciting day of all things coffee.
