2015 Victorian Barista Champion!

Craig Simon of Think Tank Coffee does it once again! We congratulate him on a well-deserved win in the 2015 ASCA Victorian Barista Championship 2015, held over the weekend (February 8).

Whilst for most of us looking from the outside in it may appear he does this with ease, and he’s certainly a man of natural talent, however it doesn’t come without it’s fare share of hard work and preparation. Craig has definitely learnt the virtues of fitting in lots of practise.

For the 2015 competition period he’s been executing plenty of trials with the new season Ninety Plus coffees, and continuing to explore the hybrid processing method he inaugurated for last year’s competition with the Panama Gesha.

We can’t wait to see him in the Australian Barista Championship at MICE in March.
