SCA Ireland are pleased to announce we’re hosting a new foundation judges workshop for anyone who’s ever wanted to start judging but didn’t know how! The workshop will be free for participants to attend and is being held only for the people who have never judged before so no previous experience is necessary.
The workshop will take place on the 24th of November (Saturday) and will run from 9am until 6pm in Bewleys Northern Cross with lunch provided on the day. Completion of this course (or previous judging experience) is required before taking part in our National Judges Certification course being held in early December with WCE Rep, John Stubberud.
On the day participants will complete four sessions across different aspects of becoming a judge with the following speakers:
- Renata Malyszko (WCE Latte Art Judge)
- Dominik Roman (WCE Technical Judge)
- Maria Cassidy (Q Grader)
- Alin Giriada (QQQ)
We will have 2 time Irish Cupping Champion, Daniel Horbat, on hand as a barista along with sponsorship from Bailies Coffee and Bewleys.
For more information or to register your interest please email email@example.com with your name, contact details and your SCA membership number or company SCA membership number (SCA membership is required) and we’ll confirm details closer to the date.
