Baristas across the UK & Ireland can WIN £1,000 with La Marzocco as part of our BARISTA HERO competition!

To really celebrate our local baristas and the dedication to their craft and customers, La Marzocco are excited to announce the return of the La Marzocco Barista Hero 2021!

As part of the La Marzocco Roadshow, we’ll be travelling the length of the UK and Ireland to speak to, and hear stories about,  some of the amazing local baristas who’ve worked in your local coffee shop, delivering great coffee, hospitality and support when it was needed.

Beginning with the South East and London (you can find the locations and details of our South East roadshows here), La Marzocco would love to hear from you about which baristas have positively impacted your coffee-run and made a difference to your local coffee community, and why you think they deserve to be our South East Barista Hero.

Perhaps they’ve overcome adversity to become a barista? Or they do charity work alongside being a barista to really give back to the community? Or maybe they simply make you smile every time you order a coffee? Either way, we want to hear your nominations!

We’ll be announcing our Barista Hero at London Coffee Festival on the 26th September ’21 and awarding them with a £1000 cash prize, as well as a wide range of La Marzocco prizes. Four runners-up will also win £100 each. To nominate your Barista Hero, simply fill in the form here to tell us your nomination with a description of why they deserve to be our Barista Hero.

We will be announcing a Barista Hero for each section of our Roadshow, which will later see us travelling to the North, South West, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. If you have a barista nomination for any of our other locations then please feel free to also fill the form and we’ll save your nomination and be in contact when the roadshow is coming to their region of the UK or Ireland.

We look forward to hearing from you and celebrating the Barista Heroes.
