- The Barista Buddy Program (BBP) is designed to ensure that all World Barista Championship (WBC) competitors coming to Melbourne experience first-hand the passion for specialty coffee in Australia. The program will give baristas a single point of contact to assist with the co-ordination of their requirements in the lead up to and during the event. Upon their arrival to Melbourne, buddies will extend a warm welcome to each barista and introduce them to Melbourne, ensuring they have a safe and enjoyable time while in our country.
Each barista will be allocated a buddy who will act as their own dedicated Melbourne correspondent. The buddy will assist with any questions the barista may have in the lead up to the trip and during the competition such as visa and customs enquiries, how the public transport system works, and where to get specific ingredients.
