Veneziano’s Barista Brawl features prize pool worth over $7000
Veneziano Coffee Roasters is holding a Barista Brawl event, taking place on 18 August from 5:30pm at its Richmond roastery.
Thirty baristas will have five minutes at each of the five stations to test their barista skills, building points as they go.
The first station, ‘Pour It’, involves spinning a wheel to decide their pattern and milk and pouring two identical patterns in a 200-millilitre latte glass. The second station, ‘Taste It’, asks competitors to identify the origin, processing method, varietal, three tasting notes, and intensity and type of acidity of a sample of brewed coffee. The third station ‘Smell It’, requires baristas to identify the coffee aromas from eight vials. The fourth round, ‘Assess It’, involves guessing the intensity of sweet, salt and sour mixed in five different solutions.
The final station is a secret challenge that will be revealed on the night.
