ONA Coffee’s Hugh Kelly has added another feather to his cap!
He has been named one of the world’s best baristas – coming fifth at the World Barista Championships in South Korea.
Hugh earned his ticket overseas after winning the Australian Barista Championship back in April – the second year in a row he claimed top honours at the national event.
The Canberran went up against national champions of Hong Kong, Japan, Canada, USA, UK, but it was Britain’s Dale Harris who took out the title.
Hugh’s espressos incorporated flavours like orange blossom, rose petal, orange, strawberry and blackcurrant, while his milk-based coffee featured strawberry and caramel.
He even created a fairy floss which dissolved into one of the marvellous creations!
Congratulations Hugh and ONA Coffee! What an amazing achievement!
