University of Wollongong’s Barista Comp and Latte Art Smack-down

We are hosting the second ever University of Wollongong’s Barista Comp and Latte Art Smack-down on August 9th and 10th respectively.
It is a great opportunity for baristas and the only one of its kind in Wollongong – we love the energy and passion people bring to the event. This year we are sponsored by ZEST specialty coffee, Dairy Farmers and Pullman tamps who have collectively donated an amazing amount of products for prizes and to be used during the competition.
This event not only gives baristas a chance to compete but to start a dialogue with other people in the coffee industry at all levels. The café scene on campus is thriving and with the multiple outlets (8+) it’s perfect to spark a little healthy campus rivalry – Last year Rush2 (my café) took home the golden tamp and we will be pushing hard to bring it home again!
I was inspired to create this event due to the lack of local avenues to meet people in the coffee industry, talk beans and really nurture the drive to learn more about this incredible industry. We are all part of something great and the more people understand that the better Wollongong’s coffee culture is going to be.
