UK Barista Champ

Thursday, 4.40pm
The new UK Barista Champion is Hugo Hercod of Relish, a deli in Wadebridge, who won the title this afternoon at the Hotelympia show.. He was closely followed by Neli Petkova of Cafe Krem in Belfast, and then Subi Tweed of Ground, again Northern Ireland. This is a remarkable success also for Steve Leighton of the roaster Has Bean in Stafford - he had his coffees used by three of the top six, including Neli in second place.
