Who would be the best Czech barista of the year? That was the question that hundreds of visitors attending the Czech Barista Championship 2018 will ask themselves.
The event takes place at Pragovka, art centre in Vysočany that holds exhibitions, concerts, and other cultural events. The two-day final round of 12 competitors will take place on the weekend of 7th and 8th April.
Visitors can taste espresso-based drinks and hand-brewed coffee from many local and international roasters. Coffee lectures and discussions will fill the time slots between the competition presentations. One of the greatest highlights is the chance to taste the competition coffees directly from the baristas after their routines.
Czech Barista Champion 2017 title was earned by Jan Škeřík, the head-barista at Double B Prague. Last year, competitors were asked to prepare four espresso, four milk-based, and four custom coffee drinks under the scrutiny of an international jury in just a quarter of an hour.
