Newsline- Now, hurry in to see Denmarks Samuli and Ben from US compete in Cologne.
As we are speaking! Livestreaming at:
and you can read about how it works here:
Now Ben and Samuli finished their first round, going to put the results up here, maybe not totally correct (it is a bit hard to follow, the streaming was not 100%).
Dominican Republic was no 1 in overall results in this round. Then US, Denmark and Austria-in that order.
I encourage you to go in and follow the broadcast yourself, unfortunately my connection is not stable enough to come with accurrate results.
Samuli texts and says he´s no 7 in all- only one more competitor can beat him if he´s to go to final. He´s nervous now.
On the phone with Ben - he´s set for the finals! He says it was a hard heat, many extremely accentuated coffees that makes it hard to keep your tastebuds calm and focused.
Semifinals startin aprox 14.45, qualified:
Dom Rep, USA, Russia, Ukr, Sth Korea; Ch rep, Japan, Belgium.
Samuli from Denmark didn´t make it- you sure did perform anyway- 7 correct is really really good. Must be some very good people you were cupping with today. Thank you Samuli !
Qualified for finals: USA, Japan, Belgium, Russia (it´s a bit hard to be sure, and I had to make some cappus for some people when they annonced).
15.13 finals starting now!
