Sitting alongside two days of the UKBC competition will be a mini festival supported by our fantastic sponsors.

Espressofest will be held at the Passenger Shed at Brunel’s Historic Temple Meads Station, where the sixteen highest placed competitors from the UKBC heats will compete in the semi-finals on Saturday 19th Augusts. The six highest scoring will then battle it out on Sunday 20th August, where the winner will be crowned the United Kingdom Barista Champion 2017 and will go on to represent the UK in the World Barista Championships in November in Seoul, South Korea.
Tickets cost £6 each and cover both days; Saturday 19th August and the Sunday 20th August. All proceeds from the sale of the tickets will be donated to the charity of the 2017 UKBC Winner.*
