Every year the Ferguson Plarre Barista Championship allows our hard-working baristas to show off their skills and represent their store. As this year's Barista Championship final fell on the same week as the AFL Grand Final, dressing up made the event even more fun.
From 55 baristas in round 1, to 15 baristas in round 2 to our top 4 finalists, there were some exceptional performances marking yet another exciting step forward in Ferguson Plarre’s strive for barista excellence.
The Top 4 Finalists that battled it out for the Barista Battle Royale Championship were
- Daniella Saif from Endeavour Hills
