Thailand Coffee Profiling Challenge 2022 to find Thailand’s best baristas announces the winners

Boncafe (Thailand) Ltd., Thailand’s leading comprehensive coffee solution, reaffirms its commitment to enhancing Thai barista skills development and capacity according to international standards by hosting Thailand Coffee Profiling Challenge 2022 contest. The competition aims to leverage the best coffee bean roaster, the La San Marco D. model MBV Italian coffee maker, in a celebration of contemporary coffee culture.
Customised to baristas’ most-favoured coffee making techniques, the MBV gives contestants pressure level adjustment and temperature alteration capabilities during brewing.
The competition kicked off by serving expresso shots alongside four servings of milk. Using single origin Craze Café Indonesia Gayo Aceh (Sumatra) coffee beans, contestants curated menus and profiled coffees to their liking. Aimed at accentuating skill competency of Thai baristas, competition rules and regulations were adapted from WORLD BARISTA CHAMPIONSHIP RULES AND REGULATIONS 2020.
The coffee contest was hosted within Thailand Coffee Fest 2022 at Pavilion CP Meiji. The winning team is VARINDA DUET, comprising Perasin Wasinrapee and Rinrada Karnchanawongpaisarn who won two return flight tickets to Italy including a complimentary tour of the La San Marco factory. The 1st runner-up prize goes to THE HARMONIC, comprising Jatupol Junngongwah and Pijarinee Suwannakul, who won a 15,000 baht cash prize along with honour certificates. The 2nd runner-ups are MALEDPRESSO, comprising Napapol Somwang and Hatairat Kuedtod who won a 10,000 baht cash prize along with honour certificates. The winning teams also received discount coupons for Boncafe products valued at 250,000 baht Usapun Inteevoravong, Chief Officer Executive and Board Member at Boncafe (Thailand), Boncafe (Thailand) Ltd, revealed: “This competition is inspired by our conversations with coffee specialists on the day we shot the La San Marco D Series ‘Proof of Perfection’ video. We have been thrilled to see their excitement and pleasure in using the temperature mode and increasing pressure while brewing coffee. The functions have a great impact on coffee flavour so we would like to share this amazing moment with baristas in Thailand by giving them first-hand experience themselves. We hope this stage can be one of the ingredients in helping Thai baristas shape the future of Thai coffee culture.”
After the contest, Boncafe held an event to introduce the winners and runners-up on stage at Thailand Coffee Fest 2022 where the baristas performed their winning skills again and the audience got to taste the coffee brewed by the winning team and congratulate them.
