Barista Guild to host first Barista Camp in Queensland

From the July 2017 issue.

The Australian Specialty Coffee Association (ASCA) Barista Guild will host its first Barista Camp in Queensland, taking place from 25 to 27 August.

The Barista Guild Camp is a chance for like-minded baristas to come together and better connect with different aspects of the coffee industry to help them in their profession, while making new friends and having fun.

The camp will based out of the Gold Coast, with daily trips that touch on different facets of the coffee industry. The camp includes a coffee workshop, a tour of the Beenleigh Artisan Distillery, and a visit to Wirui Estate coffee farm.

“We’re so lucky in Australia as Baristas to not only be on the cutting edge of specialty coffee, but also to live in a coffee producing country,” says Nic Michaelides, Head of the ASCA Barista Guild. "So in the same weekend we can talk about what’s really pushing coffee preparation forward, while also strolling through rows of coffee plants and learning about how they grow. It’s crop to cup all in one weekend.”

Cost for the camp is $250, and is currently only open to ASCA members only.

The price includes all activities, transportation on Saturday to the farm, and lunch on Saturday.
