World Latte Art and World Cup Tasters Results April 07 2016

 

It is always a great privilege to watch our SA baristas competition at World Coffee Events, and this past week we saw two of our top competitors in Shanghai. Donovan McLagan represented SA in the World Cup Tasters Champs and Alhenrico Thomas represented SA in the World Latte Art Champs.

Both baristas did phenomenally well, competing at a high standard and impressing the judges. This is such a great opportunity for our guys to learn from overseas trends while getting to meet other baristas in their field of competition. 

Donovan McLagan placed 14th in the world which is just awesome!

We are still waiting for the full results from the World Latte Art Champs, for where Alhenrico placed.

Thank you to everyone who made this opportunity possible for Don and Alhenrico. This is a big step forward for the Specialty Coffee Industry in SA and we look forward to many more world champs in the years ahead.

The Coffee Mag have shared some pictures from the events in Shanghai, so take a look here.
