The search for the 2018 TAG Campus Barista is now underway, with the national champion to be decided at CampusLink 2018 in Melbourne. 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 UOW Pulse, UQ Union, Murdoch Student Guild and Macquarie University Campus Life competed in Canberra for the title. Congrats to Demelza Jones from UOW Pulse who reigned supreme on the day!
