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! So if you have some that you’d like to share with Barista Magazine’s blog readers, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We were able to find out who won in each of the five competitions, however—see the new Champions listed below! Hopefully we’ll get some more detailed information soon…
