Single O is inviting the coffee community into its Botany location to cheer on NSW competitors with coffee, beer and burgers.

The winner from the evening will compete in the national championship at Proud Mary Coffee Roasters on 17 March, the opening night of the Melbourne International Coffee Expo.

They will join state winners from competitions taking place around the country, including Square One in Melbourne, Addison & Steel in Perth, Exchange Specialty Coffee in Adelaide and Coffee Supreme in Brisbane.

The competition has now reached maxed capacity of 36 competitors, but Sydney’s coffee community is invited to come along to cheer.

Single O is asking coffee lovers to RSVP online – it’s free – to be part of the crowd.
