UKBC Barista Jam at Pumphrey's Coffee


The UK section of SCAE together with Pumphrey’s Coffee and Beyond the Bean will be hosting Barista Jams for future budding barista champions.

The jams will focus on all aspects of Barista Competitions, from roasting and blending to perfecting milk and espressos, and the all important WBC rule changes. Following the huge demand for places at last year’s event there will be two jams to cover the North and South of the country.

Tobacco Factory, Bristol 29th Oct 2008
Pumphrey’s Coffee, Newcastle 26th Nov 2008

Following the impressive 10th place win (competing against 51 other countries) by Hugo Hercod the UK now needs to get behind the 2009 UKBC, to compete in Atlanta, Georgia next April. The jam’s are a great place to start! Leading industry speakers will be on hand to lead the workshops throughout the day.

Stuart-Lee Archer, of Pumphrey’s Coffee comments “I’m twice the barista I was before the
championship. The jam in Bristol helped me so much in my preparation, I can’t recommend it enough!”

Places are limited to 25 per jam and can be booked as follows -
