Team Sweden Wins Day #2!

In the true spirit of the Nordic Barista Cup, there’s no telling who will be the winner until the end of this entire event, which concludes tonight—Saturday (um, er make that Sunday morning, given the way these people party). On Day 1, Team Denmark had the most points (and their prize? An Icelandic ghost story read to them by yours truly, Sarah Allen, and then a proper tuck in). But on Day 2, Sweden was the winner! Now, keep in mind that these scores aren’t cumulative—we don’t know which team is actually in the lead, meaning who has the highest total score from day one PLUS day two. And that’s why the awards go to the winners of the day! So congratulations Team Sweden!

Team Sweden, being introduced on the opening night. Team Sweden won the Nordic Barista Cup in 2007, and traveled to Nicaragua to tour the coffee producing regions as their prize. This year's NBC-winning team will travel to Costa Rica in January—certainly something worth fighting for!
