Agnieszka Rojewska (or Aga for short) is the 2018 World Barista Champion.

Agnieszka Rojewska, the first female World Barista Champion in the competition’s 19-year history is coming to New Zealand and demonstrating her winning techniques at The Chocolate & Coffee Show!

Taking place 9am – 4pm, 5 and 6 October 2019 at The Cloud, Auckland, the event is filled with life’s finest indulgences and Aga is scheduled to appear at the show’s demonstration kitchen on Saturday October 5 at 10am.

Since 2011, Agnieszka Rojewska has been a mainstay in coffee competitions, taking part in more contests than perhaps any other barista in the world. From barista competitions to Brewers Cups to Latte Art Championships and beyond, Agnieszka has devoted her time and energy to competitive coffee on both the national and international stages.

Her visit is part of an Australasian specialist coffee tour sponsored by Almond Breeze Barista Blend and – an online community designed to help Kiwi baristas develop their careers with access to specialist training, jobs, and industry updates on latte art, coffee beans and machines.  Aga is hosting a masterclass workshop on the 4th (visit for more details) before she demonstrates her craft at The Chocolate & Coffee Show the following morning

The National Barista Champion of Poland appeared in her first World Barista Championship in 2015, when she placed 34th in Seattle; the next year, in Dublin, she finished in the exact same spot. She didn’t compete in the barista competition in 2017, but she returned with force in 2018, leveraging her experience and savvy to win the 2018 World Barista Championship. With the win, she became the first woman to ever earn the title.

Now in its 6th year, The Chocolate & Coffee show is considered one of Auckland’s most loved events dedicated to showcasing talents and success of artisan, boutique and craft business.
