Anas­ta­sia Paloyian­nidi was the win­ner of the lo­cal Barista of the Year com­pe­ti­tion hosted by Costa Cof­fee and will rep­re­sent Cyprus at the Euro­pean fi­nals to be held in Barcelona in Oc­to­ber.

She was one of nine fi­nal­ists in the lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion where baris­tas had to cre­ate their own spe­cial­ity drink us­ing the Costa mocha blend and also took part in a speed con­test to make a many espres­sos as pos­si­ble within two min­utes.

By adding pas­sion and high stan­dards of pro­fes­sion­al­ity, Anas­ta­sia ex­celled among the lo­cal baris­tas and con­vinced the jury.

Costa Cof­fee, the UK-based cof­fee house with an Ital­ian touch, launched the Barista of the Year com­pe­ti­tion in 2006 and since then many of the win­ners’ cre­ations have made it to the main menu of the in­ter­na­tional chain.

Costa Cof­fee marked its tenth an­niver­sary on the is­land where it en­joys a fran­chise net­work of 18 out­lets.
