A bursary for talented baristas is available from Beyond The Bean
Financial support is available through Beyond The Bean’s Barista Bursary that could see a UK barista receive £2.5k towards expenses to compete in Korea.
The Bristol based supplier of specialist barista equipment has been involved with the UK Barista Championship for many years and understands the costs that competing can bring.
The recipient of the Barista Bursary will get support attending the UK Barista Championships, including £100 credit to use on the Beyond The Bean gear range and a days training with a past year’s judge. If chosen to represent the UK at the World Barista Championships, the barista will then receive £2.5k towards expenses for the final in Seoul, South Korea.
To apply for the bursary, send a letter of video explaining why you should be picked as the Beyond The Bean Barista. Deadline for entries is December 1st 2016 and shortlisted applicants will be invited for interviews on 8th December.
