LONDON, UK — Amongst many new products, tasty coffees and a new World Barista Champion, perhaps the most exciting event at this year’s World of Coffee, was the presentation of a European Barista Camp.
The Barista Camp will be held from October 5th to 8th near Athens in Greece and, with tickets starting as low as €350, it will offer incredible value for baristas looking to take their skills to the next level.
The Barista Camp is put together by a workgroup of great baristas and coffee professionals, aiming to create the Barista Guild of Europe (BGE). The workgroup is chaired by James Hoffmann, and includes people from different parts of Europe who all have a very strong connection to the barista community.
The goal of the BGE is to both aid in the professionalism and development of baristas around Europe, along with providing events and opportunities to come together and be part of a community.
The first European Barista Camp provides great value for baristas, whether only starting out in the coffee industry or looking for the next step in their career.
Participants will have the opportunity to choose between 3 different tracks of SCAE’s Coffee Diploma System modules, with optional certification. In addition to these training sessions, Barista Camp offers lectures and tastings focusing on a variety of cutting-edge subjects.
A beach resort setting and exciting social activities in the evenings will help baristas relax and connect with new friends from all over Europe.
