Search is on for Queenstown’s best cuppa


The hunt is on for the resort’s best coffee brewer this Wednesday. 

Those concocting caffeine fixes around town will do battle in the Queenstown Regional Barista Competition – from 3pm- 6pm at the Events Centre. 

Coffee-making contenders have 10 minutes to make two short blacks, two cappuccinos, two lattes and two speciality coffees before the best in the business is named. 

The winner will claim the Golden Bean Trophy, which can be displayed at their work for a year. 

The competition is being held in conjunction with the Katrina Gordon Trade Show – covering the hospitality and foodservice industries – at Events Centre on Wednesday.
