CHAMPIONS’ HUB

A 2 DAYS FULL IMMERSION TRAINING FOR
WBC PARTICIPANTS

in order to support them to prepare better for their competition. They can learn, practice and exploit the Scientific Lab of the Hub Coffee Science. The purpose is to make competition training more accessible to all participants. The first edition of the Champions’ Hub will be held on May 8-9 in Italy at Simonelli Group factory, and all National Barista Champions are invited to attend.

This is a service that Victoria Arduino intends to deliver to the barista community. With this project we want to support the barista community making the competition more sustainable, but at the same time pushing the high level of performance even further.

In just 2 days you can:

  • have the preview of the next competition
  • learn directly from the best experts in the WBC competition
  • practice with the official machines
  • play different roles
  • clarify your doubts
  • make scientific analysis of your coffee and discover some hidden aspects of it
  • make connection with all other competitors and the speakers

This two-days full immersion training focuses on the next WBC. We planned 3 sessions for each day: Lectures, Role playing and Private practice and Coffee Lab Analysis

LECTURES. During the morning of both days speakers (some of the best coffee competition experts) will offer competitors useful tips, suggestions and mistakes to avoid pitfalls during their routine.

ROLE PLAYING. Under the guide of a head judge, competitors will play both barista competitor and judge. Playing both roles helps to understand the different points of view and the critical aspects of each role. This information will be useful in structuring the competition routine. In this session all baristas use a standard coffee to prepare their signature drink, so it will differ from the one they will use in the competition.

PRIVATE PRACTISE & COFFEE LAB ANALYSIS. Depending on requests each competitor can practice with their own coffee and the official WBC machine. They can also make also some scientific analysis to collect useful information for their future performance.
In this session the barista can interact with Researchers from the International Hub for Coffee Research and Innovation, with speakers and with Victoria Arduino technical staff. The head judges will not be present to ensure they are not influenced in any way at the WBC. Any barista interested in getting scientific analysis must notify in advance the type of analysis they would like so the researchers can organise the necessary material.
