The stage is set for an epic battle in the Gauteng Regional competition. A lot of heavyweight names stepping in to the ring for this season of coffee competitions, all vying for the top spots so they can get their ticket to Nationals! Nationals will be held in Johannesburg next year, so with the competition in their backyard it was in the homeground contenders' interests to get involved, and get involved they did!
In the Barista Championship Trevor Fitz, John Evans and Sam Naidoo are all returning, having competed at multiple Nationals each, but from there the field opens up nicely with a lot of new faces trying their hand at the most difficult discipline.
See you there!
