Home Barista of the Year: Show off your skills while getting your hands on a Sage appliance!

Can you produce the perfect cup of coffee? Put your skills to the test…

DO YOU HAVE a god-given talent for frothing milk? If you feel like you’re the nation’s best home barista but you’ve never been given the platform to show it, we’ve got just the thing.

Currys are launching their 2nd ever Home Barista of the Year competition in association with Sage Appliances. A host of fantastic prizes are up for grabs including Sage’s newest coffee machine, Sage The Barista Express™ Impress

In this new machine, we find updated technology to impress the home barista. It’s the machine that reimagines automation with impressive, intuitive ‘assisted manual’ technology that learns on the job.

You’ll be producing coffee like a pro with this state-of-the-art machine and will be able to show off your winning barista skills in style to friends and family. 


Still unsure of how to get started? We’ve got some delectable inspiration from Gina Daly, of The Daly Dish, who is swapping her cookbooks for coffee beans to illustrate just how easy it is to get involved.
