BINASCO, Italy – Faema, a long-standing brand with a lengthy record as a pioneering designer, manufacturer and distributor of espresso machines, will be the official sponsor of the 2018 UAE National Barista Championship, that this year has incredible industry prizes awarded to the finalists and winner.

The competition focuses on promoting excellence in coffee, advancing the barista profession, and engaging a worldwide audience with an annual championship event that serves as the culmination of local and regional events around the globe.

From October 30th to November 1st at GulfHost 2018, baristas from all Emirates will compete for industry acclaim, awards, and the chance to represent the UAE at the World Barista Championship, taking place in Boston.

Faema will be the sponsor of the championship with the new Faema E71E, a machine designed and realized for coffee specialists and baristas.

Optimal management of the entire extraction process, from the extraction temperature to the infusion time, and enhancement of the sensory profile of every blend or single-origin coffee.

Intuitive and ergonomic interaction with the machine that simplifies the barista’s work. Maximum customization, both in terms of settings, enabling perfect extraction, and of accessories. These are the main advantages offered by Faema E71E.


For the first time ever the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place competitors will be awarded with a full week of brewing and sensory training at Mumac Academy in Milan, Italy, with return flights and accommodation provided by Faema.

Khalid Al Mulla, National Coordinator of the SCA/UAE, says “We believe this year’s competition is the most exciting yet. Aside from the winner representing the UAE in Boston next year, three competitors will have the opportunity to train at MUMAC Academy – one of the best coffee training academies in the world. MUMAC and Gruppo Cimbali’s support is a significant development for specialty coffee in the UAE. Our community continues to grow with every Championship and UAE barista’s have started to make their mark on the global stage.”
