Elly Cortez 4 Canadian National Barista Champ


Canadian National Barista Championship 2019

Elly Cortez, Floozy Coffee + Show & Tell Coffee

It’s D-Day! In mere hours Elly Cortez will be on the main stage of the Canadian National Barista Championship representing Floozy Coffee Roasters as well as the shop she manages, Show + Tell Coffee in Kitchener-Waterloo.

We first heard of Elly Cortez about a year ago when she hosted the Steaming Beauties latte art throwdown for International Women’s Day 2018 and had our coffee flown all the way to Canada for this special event. In May last year, I (Cill) flew to Canada and saw Elly compete in her very first National Barista Championship. From that moment it was totally obviousthat Floozy needed to partner with Elly in the future, and we’re so excited that just one year later that dream is becoming a reality.

In the past year Elly has been absolutely on fire in the coffee world. She won the Canadian Aeropress Championship 2018 and went on to place in the top 9 Aeropressers in the world. Luckily for us, last year’s World Aeropress Championship was held in Sydney, Australia, so Elly was able to come and stay with us and roast some coffee while down under!

This gal is going places. We’re so excited to be a part of Elly’s journey and can’t wait to watch her performance tonight. We’ve roasted her a super amazing coffee to use for comp and can’t wait to share some more details about it! Stay tuned for more.

Go Elly Go!
