After an intense three days of competition, 30 finalists – each of them already National Champions in their home markets – battled through coffee skills tests and demonstrated their deep passion for coffee…
Only one could take home the grand 2019 EMEA Barista Champion prize, and that prize was taken by Teddy Nzama from South Africa. He works at the Starbucks in Florida Road!
As winner, Nzama will be invited on the trip of a lifetime to visit the Milan Roastery and to join fellow partners (employees) for an annual trip to coffee farms in Rwanda where he’ll see first-hand how coffee is grown and processed, and will meet farmers who produce some of Starbucks’s coffee.
