Come baristas, coffee lovers & café people one & all to the La Marzocco Barista Throwdown on Friday November 8th 2013, 5-10pm, at our roastworks in Botany.
We look forward to getting everyone together from the industry!
This is no ordinary comp. No need for WBC-like jitters. It features a series of twists & challenges that could see anyone going the distance, & taking home the mega-prize from major sponsor La Marzocco; A $6000 GS3 Paddle machine.
While staying tight lipped on the particulars of the event, it’s rumoured to be something like Whacky Races meets The Gong Show with competitors fate determined by a chocolate wheel. Skills will be put to the test!
Baristas from coffee companies across Sydney will take part in the throwdown.
There will be three La Marzocco FB70 – 2groups centre stage on the night for the competing baristas to work on.
Some unique, specially selected coffees will feature in the competition, from green coffee sponsors Origin Traders & H.A. Bennett. Country Valley milk will be used via a Juggler Milk on Tap System from Six Simple Machines.
Visiting from Handsome Coffee, Los Angeles, the throwdown MC will be Michael Phillips, World Barista Champion 2010 winner.
Judges include La Marzocco’s Tom Beaumont, H.A. Bennett’s Fay Kamanis, 4 Pines Head Brewer Andrew Tweddell as well as volunteers from the audience.
Food will be catered by the Three Blue Ducks. Door prizes include a Vario home grinder, kindly supplied by Appliance Maintenance.
