National Canadian Barista Competition

On October 14th, Fratello's Joel May will be competiting again in the National Canadian Barista Competition.   Last year Joel finished 3rd overall in Canada, so this year we are all cheering for him to become #1.

This is a very challenging competition that takes a lot of work and constant practice.  Joel will be competing with barista's from around Canada who have each earned the chance to compete for the chance to go to London England next year with hopes of becoming the World's top barista.

Over the past few months barista's have been competing across Canada in Regional Competitions and only the top 3 from each region are guaranteed a spot in the Nationals.   Shaw TV did a feature on the Prarie Regional's held at Fratello Coffee early September.  Please watch this video which helps explain what the competition is about.
