Baristas from Wild Bean Cafes all over the country are gearing up to showcase their talents at the Retail Excellence Awards (REX). Up for grabs are the much –coveted titles of ‘Best Rookie’, ‘Best Manager’ and ‘Supreme Barista of the Year’.
Head Judge and Cerebos Greggs Coffee Coach Anita Ritchie said the Wild Bean Café baristas display their expertise every day and the competition is an acknowledgement of their skill and passion for great coffee. Judging is based on taste, smell, presentation, composition, speed and the all important wow factor that makes one barista stand out from the rest.
Regional heats are already under way, culminating in the National Final in November.
