NZSCA to hold array of events and educational courses

New Zealand Barista Championship

The New Zealand Specialty Coffee Association (NZSCA) has announced a range of educational courses and events to be carried out from October 2018 to February 2019.

On 18 October, the New Zealand Specialty Coffee Guild (NZSCG) and 2017 Brewers Cup Finalist Sarah Stephen will Coffee Extraction Wellington, an interactive evening where the basic principles of coffee extraction will be explained.

On 25 October, the NZSCG and Toasted Espresso hill host Water and Coffee Auckland, an education-focused event that explores how the makeup of our brewing water effects coffee extraction and flavour.

From 19 to 23 November, NZSCA will hold Train the Trainer, a program designed to provide attendees with the skills to train company staff and wholesale clients to internationally recognised instructor standards.

From 15 to 17 January, Pre-Qwill be held for professional coffee lovers wanting to get familiar with the Q-Grading system. This pre-Q course has all the learning and content but does not involve any of the testing.

From 2 to 3 February, the NZSCA will hold the Meadow Fresh New Zealand Barista Championship 2019. Applications are still open for baristas who think they have what it takes to represent NZ at the World Barista Championship in Boston next April.
