Event description

Description

We are excited to begin the 2017 round of Canadian Barista Competitions! There are some changes to how the competitions will be run this year, so please make sure to have a read. First, there will be 2 qualifiers this year. Both will be open to all eligible Canadian baristas, regardless of where they work/live within Canada. The two qualifiers will be held on the following dates:

  • July 29/30: Edmonton, AB at The Ritchie Market (9570 76 Avenue NW)
  • August 20: Toronto, ON at the Harbourfront

The top 8 baristas from each competition will be invited to compete at the National Barista Championship in Sept/Oct in Vancouver, BC. If for any reason, any invited competitor can not attend, the next highest placing competitor from the same regional will be invited until all 16 spaces are filled.

The winner of the National Championship will go on to represent Canada at the World Barista Championship in Seoul, South Korea in November 2017.

We will be using 2017 WBC National Body Rules. The rules can be found here, and a summary of the changes for the 2017 year can be found here. Please make sure to note that the rules for National Bodies are not identical to the rules for the World Championship.

The sponsor machines is the Victoria Arduino Black Eagle, and the sponsor grinder is the Nuova Simonelli Mythos Clima Pro. Use of the sponsor grinder is Mandatory, and 2 grinders will be available on each station.

Entrance Fee for regionals is $300 + fees
