Due to some Internet issues, we were not able to post as many photos and stories from the latter part of the Nordic Barista Cup as we had hoped. But better late than never! Here are some of the memorable images from this year’s event, which was top notch from start to crazy finish…
- Members of Team Norway coach their youth barista before he performs an abbreviated barista competition performance.
- The wonderful volunteers stand at the ready to serve the coffees in the Nordic Roaster competition. All attendees were invited to taste each of the nine entries and vote for their favorite.
- Team Finland listens to Paolo Dalla Corte giving a fascinating lecture about the hstory of Dalla Corte espresso machines
- Two of the young baristas at work on the Dalla Corte machines during the abbreviated barista competition. They were so wonderful to watch!
