The Canadian Barista Championship to crown the 2009 winner

VANCOUVER, Oct. 6 /CNW/ - The Canadian Barista Championship will crown the winning champion at the competition finals taking place at The Canadian Coffee & Tea Show, October 14-15 at The Vancouver Convention Centre.

It's brewing, it's steaming and you can almost taste the victory, but who will be crowned the champion? The biggest event for the barista culture in Canada is here in Vancouver!

Every year dozens of baristas vie for the prestigious opportunity to represent Canada at The World Barista Championship, but only the top 16 contenders from around the country get a chance to strut their espresso-making skills at the annual Canadian Barista Championship, hosted by KRUPS. Each competitor must prepare four espressos, four cappuccinos and four original signature drinks in a tight window of time for a panel of discerning coffee judges. Judges will rate the competitors on taste, design, speed, showmanship and creativity. The national champion will represent Canada on the international competition stage at the World Barista Championship held next June 2010 in London, England.

The competition takes place at The Canadian Coffee & Tea Show, the only national event for coffee professionals featuring new products, dessert pairings, coffee-based cocktail innovations and gourmet tea tasting. The show offers an extensive trade show experience and educational program for new entrepreneurs, independent and chain operators alike.
