The internationally-renowned barista competition 'Grand Barista Championship' was held at HOFEX the first time in 2011. The first collaboration between HOFEX & Danes Gourmet Coffee in organising 'Grand Barista Championship @ HOFEX' was a tremendous success as it served as a platform for barista's to show their talent amid a lively fun atmosphere.

Returning again at HOFEX 2013, the competition will generate greater industry awareness for Hong Kong's rapidly expanding coffee market whilst drawing attention to Hong Kong's emerging world class barista's. The judging panel consists of local and overseas industry professionals including cafe owners to coffee roasters who will assess the Barista's serving for taste, beverage, presentation, technique, personal presentation, cleanliness, efficiency and productivity.

We provide various sponsorship opportunities for you to network with industry professionals. Please contact us at for more details.
