The Australian Specialty Coffee Association (ASCA) has confirmed that the 2023 Australian Barista and Brewers Cup Competitions will take place between 1 to 14 May 2023, in Melbourne, Victoria. The winners of these competitions will represent Australia in the World Championships taking place from 22 to 24 June in Athens, Greece.
ASCA confirms that the 2022 rules and regulations for both competitions will be used. The Barista Attitude Tempesta espresso machine and Victoria Arduino Mythos MY75 Grinder are confirmed for the Barista Championship, while the Mazzer ZM Grinder will be used for Brewers Cup Championship.
The competitions will run as one open heat, followed by one Semi-Final and one Final, where the top six competitors from the semi-final heat will compete in the finals to represent Australia.
ASCA will be livestreaming the Final in its entirety, with a first-class production but slightly scaled down version for open and semi-finals rounds.
