Obviously we would love to have as many international competitors as possible so if you’re considering taking the trip consider that there’s also the following on at the Twisted Pepper that weekend;
Irish Brewers Cup
Tamper Tantrum Live
Irish Cup Taster Competition
The event is called the WORLD home barista championships because its open to everyone so we’re looking forward to a wide range of competitiors. The idea is basically to serve 2 espresso, 2 cappuccinos and 2 filter coffees using your own home equipment and we’ll look favourably on those making the most of their equipment.
Competitors will receive a full run down of the rules but in short, here are the main ones outlined below. If you’re interested, sign up ASAP. Its going to be an amazing weekend and if you win people will like you more as you will own lots of cool stuff.
