Singapore National Barista Championship 2010

I’ve been busy at work and I almost forgot about SNBC this week that I didn’t even have time to plan leave. Hope to see all of you there. Although SCA’s website didn’t specify the time, I’ve gotten word from one of the competitors that the final day on Saturday, 27 February will start at 11 am, and will end approximately at 4 pm. As Ben Ruane has pointed out in the comments below, SCA has updated their page with the schedule. As with all SNBC’s since 2007, the competition keeps getting tougher each year, thus raising the bar and hopefully, we will see more of a coffee culture in Singapore. Good luck to all the competitors, and we hope this year’s finalist will improve Singapore’s global standing to under #20.

And a shout-out to all the readers attending, free free to comment on this blog (not the facebook post) about the results or any other tidbits. Thanks in advance.

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Colin! Hoping to finally get down to the event this year.

    Just to update, the linked website now shows the programme and times for each of the 3 days.

    Cheers, Ben

    1. It must be Fate. I have just been moved to a night schedule at work this week so that I can attend the first half of SNBC. Thanks, Ben for the update, it was actually your tweet that reminded me of the event.

  2. Thanks so much for blogging this barista competition. Relatively little info out there. Nice photography as well – do you plan to shoot the competition?

      I’ve already updated the blog with new photos from SNBC this year. I will not be covering the event though. A friend has volunteered his time and effort to be SNBC’s photographer and I will try to persuade him to put his photos online.

      Your link is Interestingly enough, this year’s SNBC has many competitors using Terra Keramik cups. I count 3 competitors so far. There may be more.
