Passengers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport are now able to sample the perfect cup of coffee thanks to the talents of Caffé Ritazza barista, Marta Twardygrosz.

Twenty-seven year old Marta from Poland has made it through to the finals of a prestigious national competition to find the best brew. Selected from 24 participants, each of the eight finalists will produce four espresso and four cappuccinos to industry expert standards at the Barista Championships organised by leading travel caterer, SSP UK, in London on Tuesday 30 March. The coffees will be marked upon technical ability, presentation, consistency and taste balance. Marta will also have the chance to flaunt her natural flair and passion for coffee by creating a signature drink from scratch. This section offers the perfect opportunity for each finalist to display their knowledge and creativity about the wonderful world of coffee.

Marta is seeking your support. If you have got any ideas or tips on what she can add to create a coffee with a twist then email your inspirations to [email protected] by Friday 12 March 2010.

Food travel experts, SSP UK, designed the Barista Championships to showcase best brands for those seeking a quality cup of coffee whilst on the move. Marta said, "It’s an honour to be representing LJLA at the official Oscars for coffee making, I just hope I can go on and win!"
