The Hotel Show and NBC 2108 will be held from the 20th to 22nd July at BMICH.


As the flag carrier of the world-renowned "Lavazza" brand in Sri Lanka, CCC has been recognized as being instrumental in the revival of the coffee industry in the country. The introduction of the Sri Lanka National Barista Championship which happens simultaneously to the Hotel Show was one of the first pioneering ventures carried out by CCC. The competition sees the most-talented baristas from hotels, restaurants and coffee houses battle it out creating signature coffee-based drinks in order to crown the Top Barista in the country. CCC has selected Lavazza as the Official Coffee Brand and La Cimbali Professional Espresso Machines as the Official Coffee Machine Brand for the competition. Participants therefore will be using one of the best brands of coffee and an advanced coffee machine to prepare their signature drinks.


This year too CCC will be flying down foreign judges and providing free coffee for young baristas to train and compete. The 2018 competition is larger than ever with 6 regional rounds and 200 participants competing in preliminary rounds spanning the entire island. This is the first time the competition will also see participation from outside of Colombo at a regional level. The winners will be sent to Singapore to take part in the "Asian Barista Championships" which brings together coffee enthusiasts and mixologists from the Asian continent. The 5th consecutive Sri Lankan National Barista Championship will be on the 20th July at BMICH and CCC invites café owners, coffee enthusiasts and the general public to come witness this grand event.
