The 2023 Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) will introduce the Richest Barista competition. Baristas will have the chance to win a share of a $40,000 prize pool, which is the richest cash prize on offer for a barista competition anywhere in the world.
Taking place over the course of MICE2023 from 17 to 19 August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Richest Barista is a knock-out format, fast-paced competition designed to exhibit incredible barista talent to the global coffee industry and all the coffee lovers.
The winner will receive $25,000, runner-up will take home $10,000, and third place will win $5000.
Over the three days of MICE2023, baristas will compete in three intense head-to-head rounds, Barista, Latte Art and Cup Tasting, that test their overall practical and sensory skills. The winner will be the last barista standing who has achieved excellence in all rounds of coffee preparation and tasting.
Registration to enter the competition will open in April 2023.
