Nordic Barista Cup

Today I'm off to Gothenburg, Sweden, for the annual Nordic Barista Cup. For those who don't know, it's a team competition between the Nordic countries. This year each team has 3 baristas, one sommelier and a coach.

I've had the pleasure of attending all NBCs so far. However, this year I'm not on the team. In stead I'll be having the pleasure of judging the teams. Each country (Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark) send one judge, who will be responsible for certain areas of judging.

The theme this year is The Future Coffee Shop. I'm really looking forward to hear what visions the baristas might have, and of course to see all the great coffee people who attend this event.
