It has been an honor for us to assist in the organization of the Starbucks Barista Championship - Bulgaria for the fourth year in a row.
The event took place on the 18th of July 2022 at Sofia Ring Mall, with the winners from each store competing in two rounds - Coffee Storytelling and Barista Craft for the title of Best Barista.
The competition was won by Polina Spasova from the Starbucks Paradise Center team. Polina will represent Bulgaria and compete with baristas from all over Europe at the next stage of the international competition in October this year. Coffee wizards from 44 countries will compete to be among the selected top 10 Starbucks baristas who will show off their skills in Milan at the chain's largest roastery cafeteria.
We also invited some of the most famous TikTokers and influencers from around the country who contributed to the fun and created an even more interesting atmosphere of the competition.
