Naming Rights and Milk Sponsor 2020/21/22 Barista and Latte Art

The team at Meadow Fresh loves coffee, and with over 80 million coffees made each year with Meadow Fresh milk, they think it’s important to do their part to support New Zealand’s coffee industry. That’s why they are so proud to be a long-time supporter of the NZSCA and are excited to be the naming rights sponsor of the New Zealand Barista Championship and New Zealand Latte Art Championship.


Espresso Machine Sponsor 2020/21/22 Barista and Latte Art

We love supporting our industry and coffee community in New Zealand, for this reason La Marzocco has long been associated with specialty coffee and the places that care deeply for the quality of the coffee served. 

The championship machine is the Linea Mini, which has all the performance of a professional machine yet is a cute domestic machine that brings café quality coffee to home, work and smaller hospo spots.

La Marzocco delivers real innovation in espresso machines and none more so than back in 1939 when we patented and made the first espresso machine with horizontal boilers, which is now an industry standard.

This was a game changer and our horizontal boiler design improved workflow, speed of service and provided baristas with an endless supply of steam to ensure perfectly textured milk.

To this day we still make beautifully designed machines with careful consideration of what baristas need, which is why La Marzocco celebrates excellence in coffee as the machine sponsor the Latte Art Championship

We love to support people willing to compete and showcase their skills in using our espresso machines regardless of their experience or background and hope to make competitions accessible to all as a sponsor.

Grinder Sponsor 2020/21/22 all events

“Everything for a great cup of coffee…except the beans!”

By now you will hopefully know AMC Roastery Supply as the place to get your Mahlkoenig, Ditting, and Anfim grinders, thanks to our long-standing sponsorship of the New Zealand Coffee Championships. But did you know that our parent company is a third-generation family-owned business that was first registered in 1950 by Alec Clubb, a canny ex-pat Scot who began importing coffee equipment in the 1960s?

And did you also know that AMC Roastery Supply is the place to go for Diedrich coffee roasters, Actionpac packaging scales, and Fetco filter brewers? In each of the different equipment segments we supply, we have set about securing what we believe to be the best performing equipment brands in each of those segments. We try to sell solutions, not headaches.

Proudly supporting the Latte Art Championship with Mahlkonig next generation E65s grinders as NZ’s original ‘King of Grinders’ dealer.

So, if you need to “Roast It, Pack It, Grind It, or Brew It” you should give Emma, Dave, or Greg a call. Go on, you know you want to! emma@amcrsnz.co.nz

Coffee Sponsor 2021 Latte Art

We’ve been roasting specialty espresso for a long time, over thirty years. From humble beginnings as a little coffee cart in Auckland, Allpress Espresso has evolved into a mature and sophisticated global brand, recognised and available throughout the world.

Three decades ago when Michael Allpress set up his first independent coffee cart, he wasn’t satisfied with the flavour or the attention to detail of the roasted beans on the market at the time. He decided that to get the taste he was after, he’d have to do it himself. He bought a secondhand roaster and embarked on a journey fueled by passion and the search for remarkable flavour.

The coffee industry can be a fast, trend-driven place. At Allpress, we do our best to carve our own path and look elsewhere for inspiration. We’ve been around long enough to have seen certain fashions cycle back for the second time. This has given us the confidence to stick to our values and focus on flavour. Great flavour is the constant.


Alternative Milk Sponsor 2021 Latte Art

“Alternative by nature, our plant-based milk’s are crafted for baristas. Welcome to the superlative alternative to dairy.

Here at The Alternative Dairy Co, we have one mission. To create plant-based milk’s that are perfected for baristas. We are driven by using what nature gave us to achieve that elusive ultimate experience in a cup. From our processes to our ingredients, our alternative ethos means we are forever pushing the boundaries to craft the best non-dairy alternatives for cafes.

We have created our milk for a strong performance with consistent stretching and canvassing, providing ideal texture and creaminess for pouring latte art. Because of this, we are proud to be the official plant-based milk sponsor of the Meadow Fresh NZ Latte Art Championship 2021 supporting the masters of the machine, the fanatics of the micro-foam, the superstars of the stretch to find the next latte art champion.”

From the farmers, competitors, roasters, judges, volunteers, coffee companies, the industry, to us, the organizers, we are truly appreciative and pumped for an epic 2021.
