World Barista Champs Recap June 30 2016

It was an exciting build up to this annual coffee championship and as Wayne Oberholzer and team SA head over to Dublin, Ireland we were all cheering them on. The World Barista Championship is an esteemed event and a fantastic opportunity for our baristas to meet the champions from around the world and learn from each other.
