This three-day competition is open to baristas from around the world and promises to be an exhilarating showcase of talent and skill. Participants will engage in three rounds of intense competition, including a barista skills round featuring the creation of eight different drinks, a latte art round, and a cup-tasting round to test their discerning palates.
The prize pool for this exciting event is a staggering AUD$40,000, making it one of the most lucrative barista competitions to date. The prize money will be divided among the top three winners, with AUD$25,000 awarded to the first-place winner, AUS$10,000 to the second-place winner, and AUS$5,000 to the third-place winner.
