Here’s Everyone That’s Eligible For The UK Barista Championship

Now that the UKBC Superheats have come and gone, we’ve got a clear picture of who’ll be competing for top honors at the 2014 United Kingdom Barista Championship, held in conjunction with the London Coffee Festival April 3rd-6th. Sprudge contributor Nico Halliday went deep on the top three routines from prelims, and today we’re presenting you with the overall field for the big event to come.

Any one of these 20 baristas could be crowned UKBC Champion, and here they are, presented in descending order based on their scores at the Superheat. Information compiled by Nico Halliday. All photos are by Kate Beard for Sprudge.com / SCAE UK.
