BEYOND THE BARISTAS,
THERE'S THE "BREWERS CUP"
In a separate judged event,
competitors have 10 minutes to
prepare a brewed coffee for 3 sensory judges
and 2 technical judges.
Be it a siphon, AeroPress, ChemEx or pour-over,
the world's best brewers show their free-pour expertise
with their choice of fresh ground origin coffees.
The aromas are fantastic as fresh brewed
coffee smells travel through the stands.
The Korean competitor was a crowd favorite
as he ended his presentation Gangnam Style,
and danced for the crowd.
The top 6 Brewers Cup trophies were awarded to
(1) U.S.A., (2) South Korea, (3) Canada,
(4) United Kingdom, (5) Brazil and (6) Hungary.
Final World Barista Champion awards went to
(l) U.S.A., (2) Australia, (3) El Salvador,
(4) Ireland, (5) New Zealand and (6) Italy.
Next year's World Barista Championship
competition will take place in Rimini, Italy.
