Hi guys - just a reminder about this for NSW forum members - a great event... by the way, it's not only David who went on to win the Australian's after this - am pretty sure Scottie Callahan was involved in a number of Danes Comps, and possibly even Paul Bassett as well?

g'day all,

just wanted to drop a quick (though belated) line to congratulate all the finalists of the danes grand barista champs this year, and to sincerely thank all the people at danes for putting on such an awesome day.

manly yacht club was a great venue and we were lucky enough to have a sun-shiney day to make the water views that extra bit amazing. comp was run without a hitch, and being able to make coffee for the crowd on the balcony i thought added a really comfortable feel. the audience were able to experience the baristas' work first hand rather than just trusting the judges choices and i think that really added to their enjoyment of the day. it also gave each of us a chance to socialise and get to know others in the industry.

cocktails and canapes to round off the day was a lovely touch. again, fostering the feeling of togetherness, everyone was able to unwind, have a drink, and just chat to everybody.

definitely the most fun i've had in competition. my hat goes off to all those who made it possible.

and hey, should you find yourself in westfield liverpool, swing past morgans kitchen and i'll whip you up a wonderful coffee.


Habib :c)
