The New Zealand Specialty Coffee Association (NZSCA) are looking for volunteers for our 2020 Championships.

Volunteering can be a rewarding way to get to know others in the coffee industry and to get close to the action. Most of all, it’s a lot of fun!  We might even have some sponsor goodies in return for your hard work. Please fill in the forms by January 3 2020.
