20 baristas; one $5,000 prize and a lot of coffee… We can now reveal the first winner of Coffee Masters NYC. After a long first day of battling between the 20 contenders, as they tackled the cupping and brewing disciplines, we were left with 8 baristas who went head-to-head in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
Let battle commence! The wait is finally over and we can now reveal the exciting line-up for Coffee Masters NYC.
We are thrilled to announce that Coffee Masters, the fast-paced, multi-disciplinary barista competition launched at The London Coffee Festival 2015 is coming to New York City.
Ladies and gentlemen – we have our first Coffee Master! We started with 20 of the world’s top baristas, who travelled to London from as far afield as Australia, Indonesia, Germany, Italy… Each of them had a goal – to become the first Coffee Master.
