nation, providing a platform for them to showcase their expertise and unwavering passion for coffee.
“By hosting a barista competition, we are actively fostering a culture of continuous improvement among our baristas. The competitive element serves as a powerful motivator, encouraging them to dedicate more time and effort to honing their skills and crafting the best possible coffee experience for our valued guests. This unwavering dedication will ultimately result in a higher quality of service and an enhanced level of satisfaction for Batswana,” stated Wimpy Botswana Marketing Manager, Reginald Abo Kefitlhile.
The competition will feature ten exceptional baristas and their respective managers, meticulously selected from all Wimpy branches across Botswana. Each barista will have a designated 5-minute time frame to prepare and present their signature coffee creations to a panel of three impartial judges. The baristas who captivate the judges the most will be crowned the winners and will receive a P2500, P2000 and P1500 cash prize respectively.
