Vacherin Barista of the Year
This week saw the first ever Barista of the Year competition, hosted at illy’s Centre of Excellence and judged by illy’s Head of Quality, Marco Arrigo; our man at illy, Davide Rocchi, and our very own coffee guru, Anna Morris.
5 finalists had to prepare the perfect espresso, followed by the perfect latte, cappuccino and machiato, and finally their own signature drink.
The standard of drinks was superb, with all 5 performing well under pressure, but the outright winner was Lukasz Pancewicz, barista on Premier Crew, who impressed throughout, not least with his signature Boozy Hazelnut Mocha.
