September 6, 2019— The Barista Guild (BG) has announced the 2019 Nestlé Professional Scholars for this year’s Barista Camp Greece, taking place next week (September 10-13, 2019). Candidates for the scholarship must clearly demonstrate a motivation to pursue a specialty coffee career through learning, experience, and networking.

  • Francisco R. Gudiño | Manager at Silvestre Coffee in Tijuana, Mexico 
  • Dimitar Todorov | Head Barista at Takk in Manchester, UK

“Nestlé Professional has been focusing a lot on the training of coffee professionals, identifying the importance of supporting new generations of people who will build a better future for the coffee industry,” said Anestis Nedopoulos, Nestlé Professional Senior Brand Manager. “So, it was very pleasant news for us to hear that this year’s Barista Camp will take place in Athens, Greece. Having an already well-established collaboration with SCA, we felt it was our duty to sponsor this event. We are happy that the Nestlé Professional Scholarship program will give the chance to four young people from different parts of the world, to enrich their professional knowledge and become members of the exciting coffee universe.” 

The scholarship is designed for people without the financial resources to attend Barista Camp on their own, who are part of the barista community, and deserve the opportunity for professional development. The scholarship award will cover winners tickets to Barista Camp Greece, accommodation on the nights of September 10-13, and flight to Athens, Greece. 

“We’re so please to work with Nestlé to provide opportunities for professional advancement to dedicated baristas from all over the world for whom, without this scholarship, attending Barista Camp wouldn’t be feasible,” said Cindy Cohn, SCA Chief Events Officer.
