Twelve talented baristas competed in a world class 2016 UKBC Semi-Finals round. But like all competitions, one must be given the coveted title of champion, and before that happens, well, the powers that be must whittle it down to the very top six. Those six were announced today at the London Coffee Festival, and we have all of the information right here.

Claire Wallace – Brew Lab

Jesse Dodkins – Origin Coffee

Don Altizo – Baxter Storey

Dale Harris – Has Bean

Dan Fellows – Origin Coffee

Jana Slamova – Baxter Storey

Congratulations to all six finalists! We’ll see you tomorrow to decide to moves on to the World Barista Championship in Dublin.
