Baristas with luscious locks and a hard of gold are encouraged to register for Shave the Barista, a fundraiser to raise money for Charity Partner StreetSmart.

The Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE) is calling for baristas, male and female, to shave their locks or beards in the name of charity at MICE, taking place from 22 to 24 March.

Uncle Rocco's Barber Shop has donated one of their barbers to give a free trim to the willing baristas. All proceeds will go towards supporting grassroots projects that tackle homelessness in Australia.

A phenomenal 9.646 cafe owners, roasters, baristas, equipment manufacturers, service providers and more flocked to Melbourne Showground in 2017 to experience everything the specialty coffee industry has to offer.
