The show, now in its second season, is being co-produced by Francesco Sanapo and Rimini Fiera. This year’s competition was filmed in western Honduras and wrapped Tuesday. It will air online at baristafarmer.com and eventually being turned into a documentary.
Ten baristas have been selected to appear on the talent show for coffee roasters, working on coffee farms, taking classes and participating in challenges and team-building exercises. Contestants were chosen from countries across the world, including Colombia, Argentina and Italy, among others.
“The talent show lets the world see the passion growers and baristas have for their work,” said Sanapo in a release.
Sanapo, a close friend of Conary, invited him to serve as an instructor on the show.
