Yesterday, our part time barista Chris Kolbu managed to win the Norwegian Barista Championship. Chris was very surprized to win and I think we all are in a state of shock after the announcement. We were allready thrilled to be in the finals, but had never actually thought about winning the whole competition.
Nevertheless, Chris was very steady during his performance and served great coffee to all judges which in he end gave him the victory.
Congratulations to Chris! We are all very proud of your performance and wish you good luck in the World Barista Championship in Copenhagen in June.
We would also like to congratulate all the other finalists and especially the
3rd place winner Thomas Jørgensen who used our espresso blend as well as some of our lovely guatemalan El Socorro y Anexos in his drinks.
