The Brewers Cup competition highlights the craft of filter coffee brewing by hand, promoting manual coffee brewing and service excellence. In this Championship, competitors prepare and serve three individual beverages for a panel of judges.
The Championship consists of regional heats and a national final.
The Final has two rounds: a first round and a finals round. During the first round competitors complete two coffee services – a compulsory service and an open service. For the compulsory service, competitors prepare three beverages utilising whole bean coffee provided to them by the competition. For the open service, competitors may utilise any whole bean coffee of their choosing and must also accompany their beverage preparation with a presentation.
The six competitors with the highest score from the first round will go on to compete in the finals round consisting exclusively of an open service. One competitor from the final round will be named the UK Brewers Cup Champion.
The UK Brewers Cup winner will then go on to represent the UK at the World Brewers Cup in Budapest in June 2017.
This years heats will take place in early 2017 with dates and venues as soon as we have confirmed them.
