Baristas and coffee enthusiasts across Visayas are in for a thrill as Baristas’ Quest conquers Cebu City in the next leg of Baristas’ Quest — with the brewing competition.
Participants from Cebu City and neighboring towns joined in this brewing competition at the Tightrope Coffee located at Pres. Quezon Street, Cebu City.
Michael Harris Conlin, President and CEO of Henry & Sons Trading and Manufacturing Company, Inc., who is also the 2019 Philippine National Barista Champion and the 2019 World Barista Championship Semi-Finalist, leads the Baristas’ Quest campaign.
Baristas’ Quest is a month-long campaign of competitions created to empower and promote camaraderie amongst Filipino baristas and coffee enthusiasts, and to showcase their skills in making coffee. Succeeding legs of the competition took place in Davao and Baguio City.
