Just a quick message to wish all of our Brum-based baristas competing at the ukbc superheats at Millennium Point this week (9-12 February) the very best of luck.
It’s so great to have the Championships in Birmingham this year. If you can’t get over to Millennium Point this week, you can watch all the action here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ukbc-2014.
From SCAE website: The UK Barista Championship heats will run throughout the four days with baristas from across the country competing in the regional heats together. Regional winners will be announced at the end of the heats and will be awarded to the top scoring barista from their pre-declared region; one each from the 5 regions of – London & South East and East of England, South West and Wales, The Midlands, The North of England & Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Regional winners are not guaranteed a spot in the finals however as these will be based on the top 20 scoring baristas from the entire UK going through to the finals; the finals will be held at The London Coffee Festival (3rd – 6th April 2014)
