This year we are delighted to be sponsoring NI Barista Championships taking place in Belfast on the 26th and 27th September 2015! We will be bringing our top of the range flagship espresso machine The Opera for the competitors to use and inviting the winner to join us at Host Milano 2015 with a 3 night stay in beautiful Milan!

Good coffee and good baristas go hand in hand – steaming milk to velvety foam, pulling espresso shots, perfecting latte art, smelling, tasting and creating the perfect coffee. Every day, our best baristas spend hours handcrafting the most deliciously perfect beverage. It’s their labour of love!

At the NI Coffee Festival, the country’s top barista talents will compete to win the NI Barista Champion 2015 title.

Baristas will showcase their signature creations and prepare exceptional coffees for a panel of judges in front of an eager crowd. Watch as they battle it out for a chance to be the best of the best and take home the top prize.

We’re also planning an exciting Latte Art Throwdown for Sunday afternoon!
