Don't despair – you can still attend! Come along on the day, we can't wait to see you there.
Check out the best baristas from across Australia, going head-to-head to see who is crowned Champion!
ASCA runs the country's most prestigious competitions - the Australian Coffee Championships. These competitions feed directly into the World Coffee Events competitions, garnering competitors critical acclaim worldwide.
Come and see the country's leading baristas compete for the change to represent Australia at the World Coffee Championships in May!
BARISTA – competitors produce a milk-based drink, an espresso drink, and a signature beverage. Competitors must accurately convey tasting notes to judges, and many take judges and the audience on a journey to origin with their coffees.
LATTE ART – competitors produce three gorgeous designs, all in a cup of coffee! They must create two free pour designs (pouring milk directly from a vessel) and one designer pattern (they can use colour and additional tools to create their image). Their drinks must match the pictures that they present to judges. Make sure to get up close when they're done pouring to see the accuracy of these beautiful designs!
BREWERS – competitors must brew a coffee of their choice, as well as brewing a coffee that is pre-selected, and presented 'blind' to the judges. Again, competitors are taking judges and the audience on a journey with their coffee - often to a remote corner of the world, where coffee producers pour their heart and soul into growing a delicious bean.
CUP TASTERS – competitors go head-to-head in this battle of skill and time. They must taste all the coffees put in front of them, and guess the 'odd one out' of each group, in the fastest time. The person with the most correct in the fastest time wins!
COFFEE IN GOOD SPIRITS – competitors produce a signature cocktail and Irish coffee for the judges. This competition is about creativity and flair, with competitors able to show off their bartending skills. Points are awarded on the accuracy of tasting notes.
COFFEE CHAIN CHALLENGE – ever wondered which chain makes the best coffee? Wonder no more! The Coffee Chain Challenge will definitively name the best chain from across Australia for 2020.
