Who Is Australia's Best Campus Barista?

The search for the 2020 TAG Campus Barista is now underway, with the national champion to be decided at CampusLink 2020 on the Gold Coast. 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 The University of Sydney Union competed in Sydney for the title. Congrats to Sarah Lim from Murdoch Student Guild who reigned supreme on the day!
