UK Barista Champ Maxwell’s Winning Performance

feat

The talented and wonderful photographer Kate Beard was one of only two allowed to shoot the final round of the UK Barista Championship on Sunday, April 6. She had a keen eye for Maxwell Colonna Dashwood’s performance in particular, perhaps recognizing winning characteristics of Maxwell’s presentation and personality: The co-owner of Colonna & Small’s in Bath, England, won the opportunity to represent his country at the World Barista Championship in Rimini, Italy, in June.

Maxwell will represent the UK at the World Barista Championship in June in Rimini, Italy. This will be Maxwell's second time on the international stage: he took 6th place at the WBC in 2012.
