What is the Australian Specialty Coffee Association?
Founded in 2001 by a group of passionate coffee professionals, ASCA holds coffee events around the country. This ranges from casual smackdowns, to official regional competitions that feed into the Australian Barista Championship, Latte Art Championship, Coffee in Good Spirits Championship, Cup Tasting Championship and Brewers Cup. The winners of these competitions then travel internationally to represent Australian coffee talent on the world stage.
If you are a coffee professional, barista, cafe owner, coffee roaster, or even just a passionate coffee lover, joining ASCA puts you in touch with the leading edge of the Australian industry.
