The International Coffee & Tea Festival (ICTF), will organise its 8th edition of the National UAE Barista Championship from November 2 to 4, 2016 at the Meydan Gallery and Convention Centre in Dubai, UAE. In addition, there will be three highly coveted national-level coffee competitions: UAE Latte Art, UAE Brewers Cup, and UAE Cup Tasters Championships.
The most skilled and professional baristas in the UAE will again battle for the coveted title of the 8th UAE Barista Champion at the International Coffee & Tea Festival 2016.
The UAE Barista Championship will highlight the skills and knowledge of the country’s finest baristas. Each barista must prepare four espressos, four cappuccinos, and four original espresso-based signature beverages in a 15-minute performance set to the music of their choice. As they ready their coffee beverages, contestants engage the audience, explaining their actions and selections, while expertly working on the espresso machine.
The winner of the UAE Barista Championship will receive the highest national honor for any Barista and will be sponsored to represent UAE at the 2017 World Barista Championship in Seoul, South Korea competing against 54 countries.
