Interested baristas across Canada are welcome to apply to this three - day barista competition training program born and developed to provide access and resources to coffee professionals. These include, but aren’t limited to, womxn, LGBTQ+, POC, and cis men.
We want to give select first-time competitors an opportunity they wouldn't otherwise have to train with experienced professionals sharing skills and knowledge gained through years competing and coaching. Stronger competition makes for a stronger industry.
A panel of coffee professionals will select five trainees to attend the program in Vancouver, BC from November 22nd to November 24th.
Trainees will have accommodation, flight ticket to Vancouver, and meals during the training covered.
After two days of intensive training, there will be a public event where trainees will have the opportunity to compete with each other to practice and demonstrate their new skills.
Registrations are CLOSED now, and the selected trainees will be announced the first week of November 2019.
