Not only can she make great pastries but she can make a mean shot of espresso too! Following her win at Espresso Post's in-store qualifying event two weeks ago, Christene Anacleto Krause, co-owner, competed over the last two days and finished in 3rd place at this years Central Region Barista Championship, securing her entry into the Canadian National Barista Championship in October.

The barista championships showcase the province's best baristas in the art of making the perfect espresso drinks.

Each competitor must prepare and serve 12 separate espresso beverages: 4 espresso, 4 cappuccinos, and 4 "signature" drinks of their own creation, and present them to a distinguished panel of judges. Competitors have only fifteen minutes to prepare all twelve drinks and are judged on station cleanliness, taste, beverage presentation, technical skills and overall judges’ impression.

Christene's signature drink, Summer Plum, turned out to be the favourite of the day. Out of over 1000 total possible points, Christene was only 4 1/2 points behind the second place finisher. Christene is proud to continue Espresso Post's tradition of being among the best in Ontario and Canada.
