Coasting : Issue 11 May 2010
29 www.coastingtoday.com.au COASTING RECIPE in good Australian champion barista Mitchell Faulkner shows how to make the coffee that is taking him all the way to the world titles. Central Coast barista Mitchell Faulkner knows what it's like to make a coffee while under pressure. And we're not talking about making a brew for a few picky party guests at his Wamberal home. We're talking about making an original concoction, on stage and under lights, for a panel of judges at the Australian Barista Championships. Throw in some tough competition in the form of Australia's best baristas, and all under the pump of a ticking clock. Faulkner overcame the odds, however, to wow the judges with his Café Agave, and win the Coffee in Good Spirits category at the national titles. On June 23, Faulkner will represent Australia at the World Barista Championships in London. On June 8, he'll leave for Milan, Italy, where he'll practice his craft on the new Dalla Corte DC Pro coffee making machine that he'll use at the world titles. About Mitchell Faulkner Mitchell Faulkner works as a barista and barista trainer for the Retail Food Group (RFG) which owns the Donut King, Brumby's, Michel's Patisserie and bb's café brands. He has been a barista for four and a half years, and is mentored by Central Coast resident Instaurator, a master coffee roaster of 20 years experience, the author of The Espresso Quest, and president of the Australasian Speciality Coffee Association in 2009. Faulkner said making a good espresso was a mix of science and art. "It really is a bit of both," he said. You have the science aspect in the measurements and temperatures, and the art is in the taste and presentation."
