What’s happening for Regional Barista Champs?

We are bringing you parred-down Barista events to the regions next March. Get out your 2024 calendars, there are more events for baristas than ever!

Then the big event to showcase all that talent, The Aotearoa New Zealand Barista Champs will be held on Saturday 5 – Sunday 6 October 2024.

What are the regionals about?

We are breaking down the barriers to entry by focusing on what baristas know. It’s all about knowing your coffee and serving it with great customer service. No signature drink in the regions, just espresso and milk beverages.

You bring your coffee and presentation. We will provide the machine, grinder, milk, cups, spoons even the milk jugs and tamper if you need it. Table decoration and all the other stuff are actively discouraged. Baristas may bring menus to assist in describing their coffee, however, this still needs to be verbalised during the competition time.

Similar to the main event you will have to pour four x espresso and four x milk beverages to two scoring sensory judges and two guest non-scoring sensory judges, one technical judge, and a one head judge. All competitors will receive a full debrief on their performances to set them up for the main event. You don’t have to go on to compete in the main event, but we would love to see you there!

You will have 5 mins to dial in and 10 mins to present.

There will be three regional titles and prizes TBC. Places 2-4 will receive a reserved space to compete in the national event if they wish.

This event is free for spectators. Competitors, head to our website for all the details.

Here's to an extra caffeinated 2024!
