Calibration Baristas Needed – World of Coffee

 

Budapest 2017

Hello All!

There is currently an exciting opportunity to volunteer as a calibration barista for the World Brewers Cup, Latte Art Championship, Coffee in Good Spirits and Cezve/Ibrik in Budapest this year.

SCA and World Coffee Events are currently looking for seasoned competitors to perform 2-3 full competition routines for WCE judges and will receive feedback from them afterwards.

They’re particularly interested in national competition finalists and other experienced competitors, however it is necessary that all calibration baristas have no conflicts with any of the competitors in Budapest.

The needed calibration barista shifts are as follows:

WBrC & WLAC & WCIGS — 1pm~5pm, June 11 

WLAC — 9:30am~12:30pm, June 12 

WCIGS — 2pm~5pm, June 12

WBrC — 12:30pm~3:30pm, June 12

Cezve/Ibrik — 2pm~4pm, June 12

If you have any interest in volunteering, please contact Kyonghee Shin directly at: kyonghee@worldcoffeeevents.org

Kind Regards,

Aidan
