Haskins Garden Centres celebrates the success of Barista of the Year

Company: Haskins

Haskins Snowhill Garden Centre is celebrating the success of restaurant supervisor, Adam Kelly, who recently won the regional heats of Costa Coffee UK’s Barista of the Year competition to progress to the UK and Ireland final.

Adam initially came top of Haskins internal competition, before also emerging victorious in the fiercely competitive Costa Coffee franchise heats. He will now compete against the best baristas across Costa Coffee’s UK and Ireland stores for his place in the International Barista of the Year competition.

The 24-year-old, who has been a part of the Snowhill team for five years, follows in the footsteps of Haskins’s own Michaela Wilson. Michaela finished third in 2023’s International Costa competition and has been supporting Adam in preparing for the next stage of the process.

Adam continued: “I have a passion for coffee, and love to spend my spare time experimenting with different types of coffee beans and methods. I know better than anyone that having an awful or amazing coffee can make a huge difference to your day."

Haskins is proud to have been a Costa Coffee partner business for over 14 years and is the only garden centre brand in the United Kingdom to serve Costa Coffee within its centre restaurants.
