Welcome to Barista of the Month, energised by Selati Sugar.
This is a space where we take time to celebrate the amazing baristas who wake us up in the morning and keep us going through the day with their incredible coffee skills.
Selati Sugar is invested in supporting the coffee community and are putting up some wonderful prizes to make your coffee drinking experience even sweeter. With Selati's Barista of the Month, each month one barista will win R1000 Cash and the person who nominates the winner will walk away with a Selati hamper valued at R2000.
How to enter
Your selfie could be selected as one of the 5 monthly candidates in the running to win R1000! Even better if you tell us what makes the particular barista your favourite! The 5 baristas will be selected on the last day of the month and the winner of the previous month will be announced on the 1st day of the next month. We will select the 5 best pics each month and they will appear below so you can vote!

Coffee at African Roots Umhlanga with Sphelele pouring awesomeness in a cup. #africanrootscoffee #SelatiSugar #CoffeeMagazine
Just visited my favorite barista - Memory @ BeanThere #SelatiSugar #CoffeeMagazine
To you Rosemary, for always steaming my milk like an absolute champ! Thank you AfricaBlack! #SelatiSugar #CoffeeMagazine
My favorite barista Pepe at the blue cow deli makes sure everyone is well caffeinated, even if you're a cow 😉 #CoffeeMagazine #selatisugar #Thegourmetgreek
Sinazo and the beautiful ladies from Homeground Coffee Roasters have my order locked in their mind! Sinazo pretty much rings up "medium skinny cappuccino" before I say it. 😬 Definitely the best coffee shop with the friendliest and most welcoming baristas in Grahamstown! Bonus: they display #CoffeeMagazine too! I hope Sinazo wins Barista of the month with #SelatiSugar and #CoffeeMagazine
