Barista im­presses judges as star to watch

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

BEL­MONT barista Ellen Tay­lor is a star in the cof­fee-mak­ing busi­ness, with her sig­na­ture drink Ginger Cold Snap im­press­ing judges at a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion in Bris­bane.

Ms Tay­lor was among the top six Shin­gle Inn baris­tas from all over Aus­tralia se­lected to make their four best espres­sos, four best flat whites and a sig­na­ture drink.

She won the in­au­gu­ral ‘star to watch’ cat­e­gory, awarded by Grinders Cof­fee at Shin­gle Inn’s 2016 Barista of the Year cham­pi­onships.

Ms Tay­lor said team­work was the key to cre­at­ing the per­fect cup of cof­fee.

“Work­ing in a cafe is a fast­paced oc­cu­pa­tion, I feel it is still im­por­tant to take time and put 100 per cent ef­fort and skill into the process,” she said. “If it’s get­ting too dif­fi­cult to pro­duce cof­fee at an ac­cept­able speed, I trust that my fel­low barista work­ing on that day can help me out.”
