Starbucks Barista Championship 2022 Delivers the Best Barista in Indonesia

People, planet, and coffee are Starbucks’ three pillars, and the Starbucks Barista Championship (SBC) is looking for the best people behind the coffee. And after a two-year hiatus, Starbucks held the competition in Indonesia again this year. With three months of rigorous selection processes, the three best baristas who have demonstrated their expertise in serving coffee beverage creations were chosen.

This prestigious competition has been held in Indonesia since 2015 and has become an opportunity for Starbucks baristas to demonstrate their abilities. This year’s competition was attended by over 500 partners (as Starbucks employees are known) from all over Indonesia, before being won by Cava Timothy Sedayu Bramono after a fairly competitive competition.

“Indonesia is the world’s fourth largest coffee producing country, and coffee has played an important role in some people’s lives, including the profession of barista. Since Starbucks first arrived in Indonesia in 2002, the company has seen the potential in our baristas who have extraordinary abilities and skills,” said Anthony McEvoy, leader of PT Sari Coffee Indonesia, the Starbucks brand’s licensee in Indonesia.

“This year’s enthusiasm has been tremendous! More than 500 partners are vying for business, and we only accept the finest from each location. This competition is an opportunity for our partners to hone and show off their greatest skills. Of course, as a leader, I’m happy of their accomplishments, and I hope that they will continue making strides internationally, as that will be a source of pride for the whole country,” he said.
