VIETNAM AROMASTER CHAMPIONSHIP 2022 – THE UNIQUE SENSORY COFFEE CONTEST IN VIETNAM
On 09 December 2022, within the framework of Food & Hotel Vietnam 2022’s last day, Informa Markets Vietnam accompanied Barista School to launch the unique sensory coffee contest in Vietnam – Vietnam Aromaster Championship.
This is the third time Vietnam Aromaster Championship comes about a very new playing field for coffee-related workers, from masterful baristas to coffee roasters, to challenge their sensational abilities. Aroma is one of the two most significant characteristics to consider when evaluating coffee in general and specialty coffee in particular, along with flavor. Food & Hotel Vietnam hopes to affirm the importance of sensory science in the coffee landscape, and as a result, to approach a higher quality standard of coffee-related drinks through sensory accreditation.
Contestants had to identify scents from scent bottles in the Scentone Aroma Kit T144 sensory training kit. Particularly, in the final rounds, candidates extended their limit by differentiating the variety of coffee directly through the coffee powder and liquid coffee extract.
Unlike VBC, VAC owned a distinguished jury with rich experience who have long worked as trainers and expert judges. Besides the head judge – Mr. Jake Ahn, VAC was a precious opportunity for all the participants with valuable advice from other judges: Mr. Kim Seokjin, Ms. Tussanwan Sittirat, and Ms. Lee Suhyun.
The winners of VAC this year named three of the following excellent talents:
- Champion: Danh Thi Bach Tuyet
- First runner-up: Dang Thi Hang
- Second runner-up: Le My Ngan
Let’s look back to some intense moments at this year’s championship:
