Event description

Description

Enter the Championship now to secure your spot at the premier barista event!

Enter now for your chance to take the Crown of New Zealand Champion 2018! This truly is the main event for Baristas in New Zealand.

The winner will travel to The World Barista Championship which is taking place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in conjunction with the World of Coffee this June.

We are searching for the best barista in New Zealand to represent us at the World Barista Championship 2018.

The World Barista Championship organisation (WBC) has licensed The New Zealand Specialty Coffee Association (NZSCA) to run the New Zealand Barista Championships from 2008 and into the future.

NZSCA is committed to running the event in close accordance with WBC standards. Our focus is on producing a field of finalists capable of competing successfully at an international level, and of course, a winner who can excel at the world finals.

If you are keen to compete there are a few things you should consider. Running to the WBC standards is time-consuming and means we can put only 20 contestants through in a day. In the event that there are more than 20 entrants for the championship, we will conduct a selection process, awarding entry to those competitors we consider best able to excel in competition conditions. This means the information entrants provide us at the time of entry is particularly important, to help us make a sound selection.
