Marco are delighted to announce that we are once again sponsoring the BGE Barista Camp for 2015. We’ll be sending the very best in brewing equipment and hot water delivery systems (more details on what is travelling will follow). For now, here’s a little about the camp itself.
From 23-26 September 2015, Barista Guild of Europe will hold its second annual European Barista Camp in Riccione, Italy.
This year, Barista Camp will have an extended capacity of 200 baristas across no less than 5 educational tracks. The ticket registration opened online on June 16th.
“We are really excited to bring this second edition of Barista Camp to Italy,” says Isa Verschraegen, BGE Coordinator. “Building on the experience from last year’s Camp, we are able to offer places to more baristas while still maintaining the program balance. We’re offering 5 tracks of education for baristas at all skill-levels combined with inspiring lectures from diverse speakers and ample opportunity to test high-end equipment, to meet with peers and trainers, and to wind down in the sun. We are confident this is a unique and important event for all baristas looking for professional development.”
“It’s a dream come true,” starts Eddy Righi, Barista Trainer for Caffè Pascucci and Authorised SCAE Trainer who helped BGE bring Barista Camp to his hometown Riccione. “Together with the SCAE Italia chapter, we’re very motivated to develop a strong and professional barista community, focused on quality and modern industry standards. By helping organise and promoting Barista Camp in Italy, we can create an incredible opportunity for Italian baristas to increase their skills as well as connect more to the international community!”
Barista Camp 2015 offers interested baristas the choice between 5 different tracks of education, named after four Italian artists, and their master:
Raphael — Barista Foundation and Sensory Foundation
Michelangelo — Green Foundation and Sensory Foundation
Leonardo — Barista Intermediate
Donatello — Brewing Intermediate
Splinter — Sensory Intermediate
