The World Coffee Events championships—World Latte Art, World Coffee in Good Spirits, World Ibrik, World Cup Tasters, and World Brewer’s Cup—just wrapped up yesterday in Maastricht, the Netherlands. We’re eagerly anticipating details and photos! (Note: I can’t find a single current photo from this year’s competitions online anywhere!
