Monday, 10 June, 2024, 16 : 00 PM [IST]
The next edition of the Singapore National Coffee Championship (SNCC) returns next month from June 26 to 28, 2024, at Speciality Coffee & Tea Asia (SCTA) held at Sands Expo & Convention Centre Singapore (Halls D, E and F). SCTA is now part of the inaugural SIGEP Asia, the first-ever Asian edition of the world’s leading Italian international artisan gelato, pastry, bakery and coffee trade show SIGEP, that is expected to host up to 10,000 trade visitors and buyers, and over 250 exhibitors and brands from 20 countries and regions.

Organised by IEG Asia, SIGEP Asia will be held alongside the 5th edition of Restaurant Asia – co-organised with the Restaurant Association of Singapore (RAS), and co-located with IEG Asia's recently acquired series of food and beverage (F&B) trade shows Speciality Food & Drinks Asia (SFDA), Speciality Coffee & Tea Asia (SCTA) and Food2Go.

The SNCC is the flagship competitive event staged by the Singapore Coffee Association that raises the profile of the barista profession, promotes best practices in coffee preparation, and encourages local baristas to continually improve their craft. With SIGEP Asia and SCTA as the platform for this edition of SNCC, participants, supporters and coffee enthusiasts alike will be immersed into all aspects of coffee production – from sourcing and brewing – and be a part of the growing competitive coffee scene.

"Coffee competitions like the Singapore National Coffee Championship are incredibly important as they push the boundaries of coffee excellence and inspire a new generation of passionate baristas. This aligns perfectly with SIGEP's mission of creating the ‘dolce experience’ and celebrating the artistry behind the beverages we love. We're thrilled to partner with the Singapore Coffee Association, a stalwart of Singapore’s coffee industry since the 1950s, at the inaugural edition of SIGEP Asia and showcase Singapore's vibrant coffee scene to the world," said Ilaria Cicero, chief executive officer of IEG Asia and organiser of the events.

Four highly coveted competition titles
This edition of the SNCC comprises four competitions and a total of 60 participants are expected to participate.

The Singapore National Barista Championship, presented by Santino, will see Singapore’s top baristas come together to showcase their coffee-making talent – judged based on taste, presentation and technical skills – with the National Champion going on to represent Singapore at the World Barista Championship 2025.

The Singapore National Brewers Cup, presented by Timemore, will showcase the best talents in brewing filtered coffee by hand, promoting manual coffee brewing and service excellence. The Brewers Cup Champion will represent Singapore at the World Brewers Cup 2025.

The Singapore National Latte Art Championship brings out the artistic side of coffee making – specifically the skill of creating designs with milk foam atop a latte. The participant with the most artistic pouring methods and designs will represent Singapore in the annual World Latte Art Championships 2025.

The Singapore Cup Tasters Championship seeks to identify professional coffee cuppers who demonstrate speed, skill and accuracy in distinguishing the taste differences in specialty coffees. The victor will represent Singapore at the annual World Cup Tasters Championships 2025.
