June 18th - 20th
A collaborative partnership between Alpro and Emirates Snack Foods in the UAE was held to help train barista’s in this region. The Master Class was given by Alpro’s Brand Ambassador Mejin Gijsbers, a well-regarded professional who has been working in the coffee industry for over 10 years. He was the 2017 winner of the Dutch Barista Championships and the winner for 2018’s Dubai International Coffee Championship.
Barista’s from coffee chains across the country and many others were invited to Emirates Snack Foods’ State of the Art Demo kitchen for the Master Class. The Master Class covered new techniques and ways to cater the rising global trend for Plant based drinks. With the help of Alpro’s range of professional plant based drinks, barista’s left with renewed confidence in the product and a deeper understanding of ever evolving trends.
Attendees were handed certificates at the end of the completion, who were excited to get back and eager to serve their clientele with new plant based cappuccinos, latte’s and a lot more!
We would like to thank everyone who attended the event and sharing their experiences, ideas and challenges.
