Coffee experts and amateur coffee makers will gather from all over the world to confer on how to make the best expresso coffee. Rob Forsyth, International Barista judge, from Sydney Australia, will oversee the event and judge the entries.
Le Lagon Resort, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, will host the competition. Vanuatu is the home to its own world famous organic coffee, Tanna Coffee, grown on the tropical island of Tanna.
“We held our first competition last year, which was such a huge success.” hotel owner and Barista organizer, Joanne Wade of Poppys on the Lagoon said. “Now Barista Vanuatu has become an annual event on the Vanuatu social calendar. The atmosphere around Port Vila during the competition time and the prizes alone, including air fares, are enough to draw numerous entrants. This is an unbeatable exotic location for an international event.”
Appreciation of good coffee and coffee growing has grown dramatically in the past few years, across the globe. Organically grown coffee beans now feature large on supermarket shelves and making café latte has become café art.
Sponsors of the 2008 Barista Vanuatu include the Poppys on the Lagoon, ANZ bank, Air Vanuatu, Le Lagon Resort, Friendly Bungalows on Tanna and Tanna Coffee
