Are you a Barista Champion?


Pumphreys Coffee invite all or their customers to take part in the UK Barista Championship.

Every year more British Baristi enjoy friendly competition around the country to become regional winners and go for the top award of UK National Champion. The winner has the right to represent the UK at the world championships fully sponsored and supported by the UKBC committee.

Whether you are an independent Barista or employed by a coffee shop owning company, the prestige of winning at any level enhances your career development prospects in the fast expanding coffee lifestyle industry.

Those organisations employing award winning Baristi in customer facing positions have been shown to improve sales through the prestige gained and skills exhibited.The UK Barista Championship is the official qualifying event for the annual World Barista Championship and so the UK Grand Final Champion receives a fully paid and supported trip to the world championships (either in Europe or the USA) to represent the UK.

The UK competition comprises regional events at which Baristas around the country compete for the title of regional winner. There are usually approx. 12 competitors per day in each of the 7 regions.

The top 24 highest scoring competitors overall are invited to the semi-finals at Hotelympia on 19th & 20th February 2008. Six finalists will be selected from these 24 semi-finalists and will compete in the Final on 21st February.
