Watch the South African Champions compete at the World of Coffee!!! June 12 2017
Our Latte Art and Cup Tasters Champions are in Hungary this week competing at the World of Coffee!
You can support them LIVE by tuning in to the World Coffee Events website which is the only place the action will be streamed:
World Cup Tasters Championship
Simphiwe 'Bobby' Adams: 13 June 10.40am
Simphiwe is up against some tough competitiors, but the way this competition works is that every score goes on to the main leader board. The people with the most number of cups right in the shortest amount of time go through to the next round, so Bobby doesn't have to worry about the people around him, just the coffee in the cups! He, his colleagues at Sumatran Coffee and Shaun Aupiais have been training tirelessly to prepare for Budapest. He scored an amazing 8 out of 8 correct in his Final Round at Nationals at the beginning of May, we're confident he can repeat it!
World Latte Art Championship
Alhenrico Thomas: 13 June, last competitor of the day (no time given thus far)
This is Alhenrico's second time at World's so now that he knows what to expect we know he is going to do us proud. What an amazing achievement to go to Worlds in two consecutive years. He learnt so much on his first trip and he will certainly take all that experience to the stage with him. His company Famous Brands have supported him in a big way to get to this point. Well done to the Famous Brands team.
