IMPORTANT: event date changes

EDIT: September 2020
Given that COVID-19 has officially been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, we believe that this is the best course of action to protect the health of everyone in the specialty coffee community who gather at our events every year.
We are working to post updates as soon as possible.
Following the advice and guidance from World Coffee Events, and with the announcement today that MICE and the World Barista Championship 2020 are postponing their event dates to 3rd-6th November, we have decided to postpone our two events planned for April.
Coffee In Good Spirits Throwdown due to be held on Thursday 2 April at Prefab Hall will now take place on Thursday 3 September.
The Meadow Fresh NZ Barista Championship 2020 due to be held on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 April at Expressions in Upper Hutt will be moved to the new dates of Saturday 5 September and Sunday 6 September.
In consultation with our invested Sponsors, and with support from the Board, our coffee community remains at the heart of our decisions.  We sincerely apologise to all that may have made travel and accommodation arrangements prior.
The health and safety of all remain our highest concern.
Thank you for your understanding.
