COFFEE COMPETITIONS

The Competition Programs at Academia Barista Pro start from 10 full days and have a different theme than our normal courses. Although it is not essential, for such training, we recommend that the Student have previously completed a program at Academia Barista Pro, or have a minimum of 1 year experience working with the professional Barista team. Inexperienced students could opt for these trainings, however, the rules indicate that they must have a minimum of experience to participate. Each country has its own regulation to this rule, we suggest consulting with the local organizers.

We have trained Baristas for Competition since 2008. Competition trainings are exclusively conducted by both the Founders of Academia Barista Pro, Jonathan Rodríguez and Johanna de Rodríguez.

These trainings result in unique learning experiences that will make the Student develop their skills, fulfilling the desired objectives according to each Competition.

Brewers Cup or Barista Coffee Competition Trainings will aim to improve flavors of all your beverages. The students will be able to interpret the regulations with ease, they will know in depth the equipment to be used and they will captivate the National and International Judges with presentations and original drinks made to measure for each client.

These are the most intensive Barista Programs that Academia Barista Pro has. Each training is priced differently, according to the needs of each client and training days. Academia Barista Pro does not include loan of equipment to compete, each student is responsible for getting their own equipment.

It is very important for us to reserve the space for each student, therefore we require a reservation of $ 100 to schedule their training on the calendar, we recommend that it be at least 3 months in advance.

Academia Barista Pro cannot guarantee the results of the competitions, however these trainings open the minds of the students and direct them towards a path of excellence in the World of Coffee.

INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION IN HARBIN, CHINA - 2014

Tuvimos la oportunidad de ser invitados a participar en la Prestigiosa Competencia Internacional GBCC de Harbin, China 2014. Uno de los requisitos era haber ganado un lugar finalista en la Competencia Nacional del país.

 

Para dicha Competencia enviamos a 2 Alumnos con el propósito que representaran tanto a la Academia como a su país. Invitamos a Lourdes Flores de Honduras y a Victor Flores de El Salvador. Juntos, viajaron por más de 20 horas hasta llegar a Harbin, China en Diciembre 2014, época de las más frías de ese país. Hubieron días en que compitieron en temperaturas de -16 C, sin embargo, fue una maravillosa experiencia que ninguno olvidará.

 

En GBCC, Victor Logró el 3er Lugar e impactó positivamente tanto a los jueces, como demás participantes, por lo que varios grabaron los testimonios de abajo, sobre Victor, su Competencia y el Café de El Salvador.

VICTOR FLORES

Estamos muy agradecidos con los organizadores de la Competencia, quienes en esta ocasión nos vuelven a invitar para representar El Salvador y Academia Barista Pro. Esta vez, contábamos con 2 Alumnos que cumplían con el requisito, por lo que realizamos 2 competencias Internas.

 

Para estas Competencias Internas acudimos a Alumnos Jueces Nacionales, quienes nos echaron la mano para calificar a cada concursante y con su experiencia, poder enviar al mejor representante. Los Alumnos que participaron como jueces, llevan varios años de experiencia en Competencia y la mayoría, ha cursado programas completos de Barismo, Catación y Brewing en Academia Barista Pro, por lo que tienen un criterio más amplio para calificar a los concursantes.

 

En esta ocasión, Victor Flores se ganó el Viaje para representar de nuevo a la Academia y El Salvador en la Competencia GBCC de Harbin China.

 

Victor es uno de los 2 participantes Latinoamericanos que queda en la Ronda Finalista. En dicha competencia, acudieron Baristas con amplia experiencia en el tema de Latte Art incluyendo 3 Campeones Mundiales en esta disciplina.
