Impress with NZ's best at the Huhtamaki NZ Barista Championship

Roaster Members! The machinery is yours for 90 minutes – The New Zealand Barista Championship is all about espresso & the baristas’ skills. But rarely under the same roof are you able to taste a variety of NZ’s finest espresso as an attendee. You can’t jump up on stage and join the judges, darn it!
The Huhtamaki New Zealand Barista Championship is on in Wellington 26th & 27th February and we are proud to have an extra 2 group Victoria Arduino ‘Black Eagle’ on display alongside the much awaited Mahlkonig ‘Peak’ grinder. But why just look at the machinery, when it was built to make the finest of espressos.
We’re offering Association Members an opportunity to show off their most interesting espresso roasts and their finest barista skills.
This is your opportunity to play with machinery that you may not have had the chance to play with before and dial in on one of the world’s most awaited grinders ‘the Peak’.
To take advantage of this, simply:
– Contact Emma to arrange a time slot: 021 415 810
– Roast & bring along 2-3kg
– Get your best and most engaging barista/s on the machine
What you offer is up to you – You will be serving your coffee in Acme & co ceramics and of course our Huhtamaki NZ Barista Championship takeaway cups.
Please note: If interest in the time slots exceeds demand, preference will be taken to those supporting the championships though barista entrants, judges and volunteers.
All drinks will be made for the public for a donation. All proceeds will go towards the development of the New Zealand Barista Guild.
