12 Months of Champions

It’s not like James and Anette are very busy running one of the best specialty coffee companies in the world or anything… I’m sure they were just hemming and hawing about what to do with the loads of free time they had on their hands, and that’s why they embarked on the calendar project.

Nah—totally kidding! James and Anette—who own and operate Square Mile Coffee out of London—are some of the hardest working quality coffee people in existence, and still, they found time to put together this first-of-its-kind calendar, available now!

No peeking! This is a teaser of the images you're in for when you get your very own copy of the World Barista Champions 2012 Calendar.

In an effort to raise money for Coffee Kids, Anette had this idea for a calendar that would feature all 12 World Barista Champions, since—with Alejandro taking the title at the WBC in Bogota—we finally had 12 Champs!

She worked with all 12 of them to put together this artistic, historical and somewhat steamy (yow!) calendar, available to anyone with £10!

So if you ever wanted to see all these handsome WBC Champions in one place—that’s Robert, Martin, Fritz, Paul, Tim, Troels, Klaus, James, Stephen, Gwilym, Michael, and Alejandro—head over to Square Mile’s online shop and order one now!
