It’s almost the end of day two and the teams have gathered to hear the announcement of today’s winner. It’s a little odd that the winner will be announced before the final competition of the evening
After yet another terrific buffet-style meal (with a tiramisu desert that is simply out of this world) the attendees and teams take their seats in front of the stage and screen.
It’s the thinking baristas’ favorite game show: Jeopardy! And the stakes couldn’t be higher (well, unless the national teams were playing for real money anyway.)
It rained earlier, and the ground is still wet, but the clouds are beginning to break up, and it looks like we may have some nice weather for the rest of the event, the outdoor section at least.
The clouds continued to hold off the rain here in the public square of Nytorv while the barista teams hit the pavement with coffee in one hand a pail in the other.
You recall, of course, the box full of an odd combination of ingredients which barista teams were given by Anders Selmer
Any lingering questions competitors and attendees might have had about the Clover brewing machine were put to rest with a competition pitting the five Nordic Barista teams
Was it a world record? I’m not sure, but it certainly was entertaining. In two five-minute sessions, each team poured as many works as latte art as they possibly could.
OK, so what would you do after an intense day of competition in the middle of a bustling, beautiful city? Get crazy, of course!
