Wyndham Resort Denarau Island is celebrating its second consecutive win at the Regional Barista competition, sponsored by Yees Cold Storage.

Mahezabeen Mohammed took out the 2018 Regional Barista award for the Western Division.

From a field of 40 competitors, Wyndham entered two of their star baristas in this year’s competition.

Joining Ms Mohammed was Matila Tili.

“I am thrilled to have won for a second year in a row. It was a tough field this year with many new faces so I had to ensure I kept my nerve and performed to the best of my abilities,” said Ms Mohammed.

“I am already looking forward to the national final in October where I can continue to showcase my passion for the industry and represent the resort and my colleagues.”

Brad Downton, the newly appointed General Manager of Wyndham Denarau Island, was delighted for the pair who entered and represented the resort.

He said: “Both Farisha and Matila are technically gifted when making coffee and continue to drive the coffee culture at the resort.”

They have been employed at the resort for a number of years, enhancing their skills in the art of making the perfect boutique coffee, Mr Downton said.
