The Daily Brew #6- The UKBC London Heat 2017

Today, I popped over to Union roasters in East London to watch a little of the UKBC's (UK Barista Championship) regional heat, and caught most of the rest on the online stream.

If you're not familiar with coffee competitions, it might seem a little strange to begin with, but just think of it as the gamified version of coffee making. There are lots of rules and each individual competitor has 15 minutes to present to a team of judges while preparing and serving lots of tasty espresso based drinks! The top 16 competitors from heats around the country will progress to the UKBC final in August.

Make sure to tune in tomorrow for the second, and final day of the London heat- just check out SCAE UK's twitter tomorrow for the livestream link!
