And Bahrain just hosted the most sought after competition on the Island- The Bahrain Coffee Championship!
The brain-child of Mr AbdulRahman Almoayed – Director Khalid Almoayed and Sons and Mr Ali Mudara(CEO PROJEKT8), the idea of the Bahrain Coffee Championship was to bring forth the talent in coffee making on the island. This was a competition that focusessed on promoting excellence in coffee and the barista profession. Mr Abdulrahman Almoayed and Mr Ali Mudara flagged off this event at Seef Mall on the 14th of December 2017. It was the perfect day and venue for this amazing competition.
‘We are very glad to see this amazing response in the very first season of the Bahrain Coffee Championship and hope this will improve every year’’ Said Mr Abdulrahman Almaoyed.
Attracting the best talent from across the island the event was professionally organized and executed. This was the right platform for all those barista’s for whom coffee making is not merely a profession-It’s a passion.
‘The spirit and talent of participant baristas is truly remarkable. We are pleased to have the best baristas on the island on board the Bahrain Coffee Championship’’! Said Mr Ali Mudara.
The competition uses the best coffee machines from Nuova Simonelli and beans from Illy.
The participation list included baristas from the most prolific Hotels/Cafes/Restaurants of Bahrain.
