Pullman Espresso Accessories has announced that it is the prize and trophy sponsor of the UK Barista Championship 2014.

Pullman is donating the Championship trophies for first, second and third place in the UKBC 2014, as well as sponsoring flights and accommodation for the Champion and their coach to travel to Rimini for the 2014 World Barista Championship in Rimini in June.

Pullman is also donating trophies for SCAE UK Coffee In Good Spirits Competition, SCAE UK Latte Art Competition, SCAE UK Brewers Cup Competition, and the SCAE UK Cup Tasting Competition.

Semi-finalists and finalists of UKBC 2014 will also be presented with Pullman tampers for their efforts.

UKBC 2014 finals will be held during The London Coffee Festival from April 3rd – April 6th 2014.

Mark Ruta, Sales and Operations Manager of Pullman Espresso Accessories, said “we’re very excited to be a part of this event. The Festival itself is expected to attract around 20,000 visitors so to be front and centre as the UKBC prize sponsor is huge for us.”

Steve Leighton, SCAE UK National Coordinator added “we're really pleased to have Pullman on board as a UKBC supporter. Tampers are so important to the barista and Pullman has emerged as the tamper of choice for many top baristas. As World Barista Championship sponsors it's great that the winner of the UKBC will win a trophy and more importantly, a Pullman tamper to take to Rimini.”

Visitors to The London Coffee Festival will have the opportunity to see Pullman tampers up close at the Jaguar Espresso Supplies exhibit. Jaguar will have the tampers for sale and will be on hand to answer technical questions.

It will be a big year for Pullman, with visits to the Melbourne International Coffee Festival and also SCAE World of Coffee in Rimini, Italy scheduled.

 Pullman Espresso Accessories began trading in Adelaide South Australia in 2002. Its namesake Greg Pullman stepped away from the business in 2013. Now operated by Mark Ruta, customers will continue to receive the same quality products and service they have come to expect.

“The future for Pullman is very bright,” said Mark. “We recently relocated to a new facility in Adelaide because the previous premises were no longer able to accommodate our growing business.”

 “In addition to maintaining the excellent reputation built by Greg, I have big plans for Pullman. Customers can expect to see new high-end product lines, a refresh of the brand and a bigger presence in the market globally.”
