2012 winner Paul Asquith

Congratulations to all the winners of the Danes Grand barista Championships (GBC) and Grand Latte Art Competition (GLAC) on Tuesday 28th August  2012 at the Specialty Food & Drink Fair Darling Harbour.

Kim Yeong from Hong Kong was the winner of GLAC and $2,000 provided by Riverina Fresh with an amazing presentation of latte art creations against some just as amazing competition presentations.

Paul Asquith was the winner of the Australian GBC on Monday and also backed up on Tuesday to take out the Australasian final and $5,000 provided by Danes in a performance that kept getting better the more he presented it.

The coffee and the competitor standard throughout the championships was outstanding and a joy to watch and to host. Thank you again to all the industry judges who gave up their time, our wonderful sponsorswho were of great support and to the entire Danes team that worked perfectly together to host a truly inspiring event.

 

About the GBC

Care, attention, intention and passion. There's a coffee maker, then there's a barista - just like the difference between a cook and a chef.
