Roath Market regular stallholder Will Corby has placed in the Top 3 of Baristas at the UK Barista Championship 2013.
He also took home awards for Best Signature Drink and Best Espresso.
The Caffeine Kid
Last week’s Farmers Market in Roath saw two new additions to the stalls, trophies for Best Signature Drink and Best Espresso following The Caffeine Kid’s success at Heat 3 of the UK Barista Championships 2013. Will Corby, the man behind The Caffeine Kid, was also named one of the top 3 baristas in that heat following his successes in the other rounds.
This is once again proof of the excellence of the coffee which he serves up. Corby was named Barista Champion of the North and Midlands in 2010 and London and the South East in 2011 and has now brought that success to both Roath and Riverside Market’s every weekend.
Will Corby has become a regular stallholder at Roath Markets on Saturdays and Riverside Markets on Sundays, using his time there to perfect the winning drinks that he served at last week’s championships. He is currently still serving up the award winning coffee at markets, using the same coffee beans and technique which helped secure his victory.
The Caffeine Kid is not the only market stallholder at Roath who is part of this award; Will Corby claims that his victory would not have been possible without fellow stallholder Avril Lord. Avril who runs Avril’s Country Kitchen provided Corby with a hand-made preserve which he used to add to the flavour of his award winning signature drink.
Avril’s Country Kitchen can also be found at Roath and Riverside markets selling a wide range of home-made preserves, all using locally sourced and home grown produce.
Roath Farmer’s Market, part of RCMA Farmers Markets, is quickly becoming a hub of activity for those interested in food in Cardiff, with many stallholders creating partnerships to create the best possible produce they can. Running every Saturday from 9.30am – 1pm it is the perfect place to pick up some delicious weekend treats.
