2011 Danish Barista Champion: AnneStine!

This weekend the 2011 Danish Barista Championship took place at Dansk Kaffe Show in Århus.

The three finalists were:
AnneStine Bae, The Coffee Collective
Christian Ryberg, The Coffee Collective
Mathias Arguimbau, Café Norden / Estate Coffee

Finalists - tension in the air

They were all using different coffees from The Coffee Collective.
AnneStine used the Cypresal microlot from Finca Vista Hermosa, that we featured a few months ago. Christian used a special roast of our Kenyan Kieni. And Mathias used our Espresso Blend and a Kenyan from Estate for his signature drink.

The finals this year looked really solid. It's great to see that the baristas have prepared themselves so well and are so focused on their presentation and the taste of the drinks they're serving.

After a gruesome wait the results were revealed.
1st place: AnneStine
2nd place: Christian
3rd place: Mathias

Dansk Kaffe Show now on 10th-13th March 2011

On Thursday it is time for THE danish coffee event again. In Århus. Everyone involved in specialty coffee gathers once a year to make a show where you can come in to see, try and discuss coffee. There will be many things happening that will be fun to follow- it is an open show where everyone can find something interesting. It doesn't even matter if you drink coffee in the first place.

There will be places where you can try coffee and watch competitions gathering the leading coffee people in Denmark.

This event is the Bocuse d'Or of coffee in Denmark. Those who do good here will represent Denmark in the international competitions this summer.

We wish everybody good luck in their aspirations and of course especially our competing collegues.

See you in Århus !
