SCA UK Barista Championship: semifinalists announced

21 March, 2022

The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) UK Barista Championship is one of the highlights of the year and as official machine sponsor for the 2022-24 season, we are delighted that the 2022 event is underway, following the inevitable delays caused by the pandemic.

The search for the UK’s most skilful barista is really hotting up. With the four initial regional heats now complete, the 14 baristas with the highest scores automatically go through to the semifinal stage of the competition. The leaderboard will return to zero as the competing baristas battle it out to claim the title and with it the opportunity to represent the UK in the World event in Melbourne in September.

“The excitement is really building as we look forward to lending our support and seeing how these star baristas progress through the next stages, said Daniel Clarke, Commercial Director, La Cimbali.

“These guys are exceptional at what they do. There really is so little between them. At this stage, it really is impossible to call the winner.”

Further details on the date/location of the semifinals and finals coming soon. Please check for more updates.
