3 CUPS OF COFFEE
ONE WORLD CHAMPION
Bogotá was the scene this week of
the 2011 World Barista Championship . . .
an event that recognized the excellence
of the best baristas from 54 nations,
in a country where coffee is grown and revered,
and handpicked "bean by bean."
Contestants are given 15 minutes to prepare . . .
one espresso, one cappuccino and one signature drink,
before a panel of 7 judges, on world-wide streaming TV.
It's down to 6 finalists, who compete later today for
the title of World Champion Barista.
Good luck to Australia, El Salvador, Japan, Spain,
United Kingdom and United States.
