After a long, wonderful and super educational day at the Nordic Roaster, the event wrapped simultaneously with the beginning of the Nordic Barista Cup, in a fun party with beer, hotdogs and spectacular views of Oslo.
It was a blast! After everyone had hotdogs—with a Norwegian twist: they were wrapped in lefse, which is similar to a tortilla but made from potatoes—and beers in hand, our emcees, David Latourell and Jay Lijewski called everyone to attention and announced a few details about the Nordic Barista Cup, and then proceeded with the introduction of the five Nordic teams.
Another special element of this year’s NBC is that some teenagers from a local chef school have been invited to participate and help the teams out in Saturday’s event, and they’re really excited to be with us. And we’re excited to have them!
And then it was time to welcome the five teams of the Nordic Barista Cup to the stage!
What a great evening—and what a wonderful Nordic Barista Cup to come!
