So you think you know your ristretto from your lungo, your flat white from your latte'?

Why not enter the 'Barista Smackdown' competition? A live event in The Brew Theatre, at this year's NZChefs National Salon - NZ's annual hospitality championships.

Each heat will consist of competitors preparing and presenting a coffee selected at random by our judges. At the spin of a wheel you could be brewing up anything from a classic rosetta latte to a 1970's style cappuccino.

Competitors will have 3 minutes to prepare their machines and grinders before their coffee is selected. Then 90 seconds to present and prepare the coffee, followed by 2 minutes to clean down.

The winner will be the last competitor left after all the heats.

See link for competition and entry details. There will be a few spots available for entries on the day.

This event is part of the NZ Chefs National Salon which is being held at the Logan Campbell Centre from Thursday 30th July to Sunday 2nd August, 8 am - 5 pm daily. Come along and see some of NZ's top chefs and hospitality professionals in action, along with margarine sculpting, barista and cocktail competitions and the national primary school 'Kiwi Kids Can Cook' competition.
