Who Is Australia's Best Campus Barista?

The search for the 2019 TAG Campus Barista is now underway, with the national champion to be decided at CampusLink 2019 in Sydney. A $500 cash prize, the trophy, a $2,000 Carisma Espresso Machine (courtesy of Vittoria Coffee) and the title of Australia's best campus barista are up for grabs! 

Last year, finalists from CITSA, UQ Union, Murdoch Student Guild and Macquarie University Campus Life competed in Canberra for the title. Congrats to Courtney Wilson from UQ Union who reigned supreme on the day!

Could it be one of your baristas in 2019?
