Some of the friends I was with in Paris last week headed immediately on to Internorga, the Hamburg, Germany show where away-from-home goods are showcased annually. Increasingly, Internorga has a specialty coffee and barista focus, and with more than 1,200 exhibitors and close to 100,000 attendees, that makes it a more and more attractive place for leading coffee companies, and people, to be.

I kept track of the action through my friends Nora Šmahelová, co-owner of Chapter One Coffee in Berlin, and Francesco Sanapo, Italian Barista Champ and owner of Artigianale in Florence, Italy, who were at the center of the action at the biggest barista event to take place during Internorga: Barista Jam Part 2, hosted by Mahlkönig, Nuova Simonelli, Kaffe Ebgold, and BWT Water and More. Here are some photos of all the action!

An enormous crowd turned out for the Barista Jam hosted in part by Mahlkönig and Nuova Simonelli in Hamburg, Germany, during the big Internorga show.
