Almond Breeze is looking for the country’s best baristas, following the launch of its Barista Blend in Australia 18 months ago.
The nationwide competition – the Almond Breeze Breezey Masters – will visit each state, with baristas from across the country invited to craft the most creative latte art using Almond Breeze Barista Blend.
Roger Ringwood, country director at Blue Diamond Growers Australia said, “Almond Breeze Barista Blend has achieved significant success in terms of sales, barista endorsement and distribution presence since launching in 2014. We wanted to take this to the next level with a program designed to support and highlight the world class barista talent we have in Australia.”
The first of eight rounds will take place in Darwin in June and will progress around the nation ahead of a grand final in Sydney in October, where the winner will take out the title of Breezey Grand Master 2016 and win an all-expenses paid trip to America.
Almond Breeze Barista Blend is exclusive to the foodservice market.
The Breezey Masters heats will take place in the following states over the coming months:
• Darwin: 21st June 2016
• Brisbane: 28th June 2016
• Adelaide: 5th July 2016
• Perth: 12th July 2016
