2010 National Australian Barista Competition

Here are the details for the 2010 National Australia Barista Championships, kicking off this Friday. More info, and a live stream of the event can be found at the AustralAsian Specialty Coffee Association's website,

We'll be tweeting the event as much as possible (in between judging, helping out and generally running around) from our Twitter Account @BarNine using the hashtag #ABC10 (Australia Barista Competition 2010). I dare say that this will probably be the most up to the minute way to follow the event (except of course the live feed) if you can't make it the the Gold Coast Convention Center where the event is being held.
