The GOODS from 49th Parallel

Vancouver, BC | On Saturday, July 26th, the Western Regional Barista Competition was hosted at Rocanini Coffee Roasters. 49th Parallel sent two competitors to compete for the opportunity to advance to the Canadian National Barista Competition. Cole Trepanier and CJ Yang placed first and second respectively and will be competing at the Canadian National Barista Competition in Mississauga, ON September 28-29, 2014.

Following months of training with former Canadian Barista Champion and coffee educator at 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters Kyle Straw, Cole and CJ put their hard work to the test. With presentation themes concerning current issues affecting the coffee industry such as coffee leaf rust and processing methods, the extensive amount of knowledge Cole and CJ presented to the judges set them apart from the other competitors.

During competition, baristas give a 15-minute service oriented presentation in which they serve a team of certified sensory and technical judges 4 espressos, 4 cappuccinos and 4 signature beverages of the baristas choice. It is a race against the clock as competitors are scored on a complex set of rules that emphasize cleanliness, taste, professionalism, efficiency and mastery of craft.
