The new Barista Champion Portugal is Rui Pedrosa, winning the Portuguese SCA Barista Championship 2022 in Lisbon.
9 Portuguese baristas competed for the title in what was a display of inspiring performances with the ASTROLAB Multiboiler, official competition machine. Rui Pedrosa, who is barista at 7G Coffee Roasters Porto, won the final round against competitors Brian Blaker and Hugo Ferraz. Congratulations to this victory, but most of all for the winning performance where coffee, creativity and skill came together.
Channeling what’s best in coffee
The ASTROLAB Multiboiler is designed to enable specialty baristas to extract the essence of their coffee. The espresso machine offers an intuitive and ergonomic work space. Most of all, it guarantees perfect stability and easy monitoring of all processes so the barista can move swiftly from one drink preparation to the next. Time and precision are crucial during the competition.
Within 15 minutes, competitors have to prepare an espresso, a coffee drink with milk and a signature drink, each in quadruplicate, one after the other on stage and convince the judges with a detailed and fresh presentation. A panel of international judges evaluates, among other things, the quality of the different drinks, the technical skills handling espresso machine and accessories and cleanliness of the work space.
Winner Rui Pedroso has qualified for the World Barista Championships, which will take place in Melbourne, Australia. We look forward to seeing him presenting Portugal!
