The Barista Competition for Amateurs 2017 has completed the Semi-Final round last Sunday at PJ’s Coffee Sala. The top 4 competitors from the Semi-Final will compete in the Final round on Sunday 26th March to win the awards of a Da Lat trip and a professional Barista training course from Saigon Coffee Academy.
Organized by PJ’s Coffee Vietnam, the Barista Competition for Amateurs 2017 was designed for residents and officers in the surrounding Sala urban area, District 2, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Prior to the first round, each contestant was paired up with a PJ’s Coffee barista to learn how to make coffee and to learn and practice their Latte Art skills by using the facilities at Saigon Coffee Academy – a partner of PJ’s Coffee.
During the first round, judges evaluated the 16 competitors on their ability to prepare and present beverages with beautiful Latte Art. 7 qualifying contestants competed in the second round that challenged them to show off their skills and knowledge about Espresso.
