CONGRATULATIONS to our very own Barista Benji for winning the UK Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Breezey Masters competition last week. Almond Breeze Barista Blend is Australia’s first almond milk developed in partnership with baristas, specifically for baristas and now styled by baristas. The unique formula in Almond Breeze Barista Blend comes from Blue Diamond Growers, The Almond People, who have over 100 years’ experience in growing and harvesting the world’s finest almonds.
The Breezey Masters is a top class, global latte art competition, now in its third year, that allows baristas to showcase their skills using Almond Breeze almond milk. The competing baristas are required to make four different patterns and a free pour – a heart, tulip, rosetta, swan and a free pour design. The baristas are judged on the quality of their designs, with the added pressure of completing their drinks within a set time period.
The winners go on to battle it out for the Grand Champion title in one final competition held in Australia in November, and Ben is going to be one of them (we’re not jealous at all!) The winner will also appear in a designated space on the side of the packaging of the Almond Breeze’s Barista Benchmark series Almond Breeze Barista Blend. So watch out for his lovely face on the side of a carton near you!
Good luck Ben!
