Dalla Corte Espresso Machines at Melbourne
Dalla Corte, in attendance at MICE from September 27th to the 30th (booth number 426), has taken this opportunity to invite some of the world’s best baristas to compete on quintessential specialty espresso machine, the Zero.
In fact, MICE (the Melbourne International Coffee Expo) is hosting the 2022 World Barista and World Brewers Cup championship finals.
The Dalla Corte Australia Team has organized a competition out-of-the-box: the stakes are high, with a cash prize of 5000 euros for the winner. However, the vibe will be very different from the championships.
At the DC World Espresso Championship, the national barista champions can flex their sensory skills and talent in a more laid-back atmosphere, experimenting on Zero the full potential of flow profiling for espresso making.
The competition will be a multi-round elimination tournament, each barista will have an allowance of time for calibration, followed by preparation time and then immediate evaluation of their espresso by a panel of expert judges.
A contest focused on sensory experience, where judges will give their blind opinion evaluating the competitors’ espresso, made with coffee supplied by the competition and Zero’s “freestyle” flow lever. Only thing that matters will be what they can taste, smell, and see in the cup in front of them. Competitors will battle each other one-on-one ‘til they reach the final, then we’ll see only one barista excel.
The winner takes home 5,000 Euros and the title of first World Espresso Champion by Dalla Corte.
