BUTLER barista Ellie Barbosa will compete against three of her peers to brew the best cuppa in Banksia Grove next week.

The Alkimos resident will take part in The Coffee Club’s barista competition state finals on July 31.

She hopes to win the regional competition and go to Brisbane for the national competition.

In 2016, she won the regional finals and came second in the nationals, and last year she came second in the state finals.
